VMware has unveiled a new version of its integrated hybrid cloud solution to simplify deployment and management of cloud environments. The new version supports Kubernetes, among other things.
VMware Cloud Foundation claims this is the fastest way to achieve integrated hybrid cloud environments thanks to a set of software-based services for compute, storage, network, security and cloud management. “VMware Cloud Foundation is at the heart of VMware’s hybrid cloud strategy as the simplest way to deploy and manage the hybrid cloud,” said John Gilmartin, general manager and vice president of the Integrated Systems Business Unit at VMware.
Gilmartin talks about a solution that provides a proven, comprehensive cloud infrastructure and management for demanding hybrid cloud environments, with a coherent infrastructure and approach for private cloud, public cloud and edge computing. In doing so, the VMware Cloud Foundation should help 3.5 customers to support diverse needs and protect existing investments so that they fit more easily into hybrid cloud strategies.
The new version offers customers more choice when deploying infrastructure, thanks to the added support of combined infrastructure platforms such as HPE Synergy Gen10 and Dell EMC PowerEdge MX. There is also an integration with VMware NSX-T, which enables an automated roll-out and lifecycle management of the network virtualisation software. It also supports containers in Kubernetes.
Dell EMC also announced a preview of VMware Cloud Foundation at Dell EMC VxRail. This combination provides an easy way to build a private cloud with the highest possible functionality, including multi-site and multi-cluster support and fully automated deployment and lifecycle management for the entire stack.
Finally, vRealize Network Insight 4.0 was announced by VMware. The new release enables troubleshooting for application connectivity in hybrid and multi-cloud environments. It is also possible to trace the path from an on-premise virtual machine to an EC2 instance in AWS. It also supports sflow, a new visibility for the VMware NSX-T topology and events, and support for Cisco ACI underlay and Cisco ASA firewall.This news article was automatically translated from Dutch to give Techzine.eu a head start.
