To keep our customers agile, the VMware Cloud-Native Apps group builds infrastructure technologies to open, common standards that preserve security, performance, and ease-of-use, from developer desktop to the production stack.
Our Cloud-Native Apps group helps developers and operations engineers quickly build and seamlessly manage next-generation applications. Our projects support open standards for agility, interoperability and security throughout the application lifecycle.
VMware Photon Platform is the easiest way to run cloud-native apps on premises at scale. Photon platform is VMware’s cloud-native infrastructure purpose-built to run containers on best of class compute, storage and network virtualization.It’s framework agnostic with support for next gen frameworks of choice such as cloud foundry, Docker, Kubernetes etc.
VMware Photon Controller is an open source, distributed control plane for multi-tenant deployments designed from the ground-up to address the need for elasticity, high churn and self-healing.
VMware Photon Machine is a new compute host based on ESXi that includes Photon OS for creating simple, stackable, replaceable hosts.
Automation of infrastructure consumption and operations using simple RESTful APIs, SDKs and CLI tooling, all fully multi-tenant.
Installer and Management UI makes the process of deploying and managing Photon Controller on ESXi hosts in large-scale, production-like environment easy. Upgrade to subsequent releases with minimal downtime (as short as several minutes) and with a handful of CLI commands or API calls.
Fast, Scale-out Control Plane optimized for massive scale and speed, allowing the creation of 1,000s of new VM-isolated workloads per minute, and supporting 100,000s of total simultaneous workloads, Docker Swarm, and Pivotal CF.
Graphite / Grafana gathers statistics from your management plane and cloud hosts to give you the visibility you need to feel confident running a large cloud.
Run traditional and containerized workloads side by side on a single platform with vSphere Integrated Containers. Meet the needs of both IT and developers by leveraging a Docker endpoint across your vSphere-based infrastructure.
vSphere Integrated Containers maps Docker Linux container constructs to vSphere elements so cloud-native apps run alongside existing workloads and benefit from hardware-level isolation and improved manageability.
In this podcast, Kit Colbert, VP and CTO of the Cloud Native Apps team, talks about how vSphere Integrated Containers and Photon Platform are designed for running containerized workloads in production.Listen to Podcast
VMware collaborates on cloud-native computing and container standards with the entire community. We have open-sourced key projects to ease integrations with other technologies, and are working across the industry to build and contribute to specifications that work for everyone.
Photon Controller enables you to create thousands of new containers per minute and support hundreds of thousands of total simultaneous workloads. Photon Controller is a component of Photon Platform.
Lightwave is designed to provide enterprise level security and access control across your entire infrastructure and application stack. With built in single-sign on, authentication, authorization and certificates, Lightwave allows you to enforce governance and security throughout all stages of your product life cycle.
