The release of vSphere 7.0 U1 brings with it a lot of new enhancements to the platform’s core, while the four new Tanzu editions make it easier to package a complete Kubernetes solution. In the meantime, using vSphere with Tanzu has been simplified even more with use of the vSphere Distributed Switch as its main networking construct. Now your vSphere environment can be transformed into a Kubernetes powerhouse.

To be good at software, you have to run a cloud platform at enterprise scale. Automation is essential to this task. The automation of patches, updates, and upgrades is the hallmark of a healthy “platform as product” practice. At VMware, we’re always looking for ways to make automation easier for customers. To that end, our efforts have reached a new milestone: The new platform automation release of Concourse is now generally available.

If there’s one golden rule of digital transformation, it’s that developers must be able to develop new apps and features—quickly, simply, and securely. If there’s another golden rule of digital transformation, it’s that developers must be able to push that new code to production—quickly, simply, and securely. Without these capabilities, it’s less digital transformation and more digital lip service.

The free availability of hundreds of thousands of open-source applications and components available as containers in public registries like Docker Hub presents both opportunities and challenges for enterprises looking to make the most of their shiny new Kubernetes clusters. Open-source software achieves a wide variety of functionality within modern applications, removing the need for developers to create their own services, such as logging and monitoring, caching, databases, message queues, etc.

This is a demonstration of the Service-Level Objective (SLO) feature in VMware Tanzu Service Mesh. Service-level objectives provide a formalized way to describe, measure, and monitor the performance, quality, and reliability of microservice applications. SLOs provide a shared quality benchmark for application and platform teams to reference for the purposes of gauging service-level agreement (SLA) compliance and continuous improvement.

Cloud Foundry for Kubernetes has reached GA! Watch Paul Czarkowski create a Tanzu Kubernetes Grid Kubernetes cluster using Tanzu Mission Control ( don't worry CF4K8s works great on any Kubernetes cluster, even KIND ). Once the cluster is up Paul installs some infrastructure including the Harbor registry and then deploys Cloud Foundry for Kubernetes on the cluster using Harbor as its container registry.

Coté discusses three ways he thinks about what “digital transformation” means, and then focuses on the software related one. That whole “BE LIKE A TECH COMPANY” thing people are always PowerPointing about. Also: technology actually is hard, and pre-dread.

Tesco Bank has embarked on a digital transformation journey, and at the heart of it lies a shift of culture and the adoption of modern product development practices. What could go wrong? Everything! Culture, leadership, bureaucracy, route to production, you name it. Yet, with the help of VMware Pivotal Labs, we delivered an amazing product during a time of great need for our customers.

Daimler supports its developers with a centrally curated DevOps toolchain, including a cloud native platform based on Cloud Foundry. The idea is to free hundreds of dev teams from operations scaffolding and allow them to instead focus on delivering their products. “Platform-as-a-product” is the strategy to keep up with the demand and the continuous feature evolution. KPIs are part of the platform. Some are consumed by the platform team to measure the success of the platform itself. Others are provided as “KPIs-as-a-service” to the platform customers.

Why You Need Application Modernization Most developers work on existing applications (apps): products and services that have been built, maintained, and updated over long periods of time. Normally, these apps exist as a web of tightly coupled, sparsely documented systems.

The adoption of multi-cloud is on the rise among enterprises. However, major cloud providers including AWS, Azure, GCP, or VMware Cloud on AWS are different and monitoring across diverse cloud environments is not easy. Learn what metrics should you as DevOps or SRE engineer observe on each of the major cloud providers. Also, learn why is Tanzu Observability by Wavefront essential for unified, full-stack, multi-cloud observability, and analytics.

It's common in talks about digital transformation to make fun of waterfall as a software delivery methodology, but that's not entirely fair. Waterfall works great if your requirements are unchanged, you understand your users and, as a result, you don't need to be highly adaptable to users' changing needs.

Modernizing Software Development to Improve Your Business. Wrapping your mind around what exactly "digital transformation" is-and, more importantly, what to do about it-can be difficult. In my experience, "digital" is a catch-all phrase for "doing new things with IT." That could mean anything from moving desktop management to virtual desktops, using SaaS more, or selling insurance policies and industrial solvents on Instagram.
