No doubts, vSphere 7 is the most significant innovation since ESXi, twenty years ago. Nowadays, it is all about modern applications; customers are looking to design, deploy and maintain all apps at the same place.
vSphere 7 allows deploying Applications using any combination of virtual machines, containers, and Kubernetes.
The new generation of vSphere is available in two editions:
- vSphere 7
- vSphere 7 with Kubernetes (Available on VMware Cloud Foundation)
What is VMware Cloud Foundation Services?
VMware Cloud Foundation Services is a new, integrated Kubernetes and RESTful API surface that enables you to drive API access to all core services. VMware Cloud Foundation Services consists of two families of services—Tanzu Runtime Services and Hybrid Infrastructure Services.
- Tanzu Runtime Services deliver core Kubernetes development services, including an up-to-date distribution of Tanzu Kubernetes Grid.
- Hybrid Infrastructure Services include full Kubernetes and RESTful API access that spans creating and manipulating virtual machines, containers, storage, networking, and other core capabilities.
