VMware Announces Expanded Portfolio of Products and Services to Help Customers Modernize Applications and Infrastructure

"Today’s businesses need agile, scalable and secure digital platforms to empower and enable new, cloud-native applications,” said  Eric Grall, senior executive vp – chief operating officer at Atos. “In a world where containerization and Kubernetes are becoming increasingly important, VMware Tanzu helps accelerate these capabilities in order to compete and win.”

“As a VMware Cloud Provider Platform partner, Cloudian's distributed, S3-compatible object storage solution fully complements VMware's vision of hybrid and multi-cloud,” said Gary Ogasawara, chief technology officer at Cloudian. “Our integration efforts with VMware Cloud Foundation are underway to help provide a seamless experience for customers with cloud-native applications that need S3-compatible storage.”

“At Cognizant, we work with clients to transform their existing systems into cloud-native apps and create a modern DevOps approach to gain a competitive advantage,” said Allen Shaheen, executive vice president, Cognizant Digital Engineering. “By harnessing the products and solutions VMware offers, we’re able to provide our clients with faster app releases that are scalable and enterprise ready while enabling the reduction of infrastructure and operational costs.”

“Real-time applications have quickly become the new standard for digital experiences. However, many organizations struggle to build these real-time applications, because they're unable to access and leverage the massive amounts of data sprawled across traditional and next generation infrastructures," said Simon Hayes, vice president, corporate and business development at Confluent. “VMware and Confluent have partnered to make it easier for enterprises to transition to modern architectures faster and easier than before. The integration of VMware Tanzu Kubernetes Grid and Confluent Platform empowers developers to bring together these data sources and deploy in any environment with the data security and synchronization they need to rapidly build modern applications.” 

Dell Tech
“Today’s announcement brings greater flexibility and choice to customers using Dell Technologies Cloud, built with VMware Cloud Foundation at the core,” said Deepak Patil, senior vice president and general manager, Cloud Platforms & Solutions, Dell Technologies. “As organizations look to solve for managing their private clouds seamlessly with multiple public clouds, we’re now able to extend our capabilities to both VMs and containers with a single hybrid cloud platform. This enables developers to rapidly innovate and embrace cloud native applications at the pace that makes the most sense for their organization. With our synchronous release strategy for VxRail, customers can run Kubernetes on Dell Technologies Cloud Platform with vSphere 7.0 within 30 days of VMware availability, enabling rapid access to the latest technologies for our customers.” 

“We are delighted to introduce support for VMware Tanzu and VMware Cloud Foundation within the HCL Cloud Native Labs,” said Kalyan Kumar (KK), CVP and CTO – IT Services, HCL Technologies. “Enterprises pursuing a cloud native journey need access to container-based platforms that support modernization of existing applications and accelerate the creation of innovative new solutions. VMware Tanzu brings all of these capabilities together within an integrated platform that supports the entire journey. The hybrid cloud infrastructure that supports this is now easier to deliver with VMware Cloud Foundation 4 with vSphere 7 which offers built-in Kubernetes support for container-based workloads.”

“We are entering a new age of enterprise cloud at scale with VMware Tanzu. Tanzu combines a premier developer experience with robust Day 2 operational support,” said Ryan Maguire, CTO, Kin + Carta. “Kin + Carta is excited to combine forces with VMware and our clients to make digital business tangible, sustainable and profitable.”

“The world of modern apps holds a unique opportunity to unlock business innovation. We’re pleased to see the progress they have made with Tanzu. This underscores our efforts to deliver the best customer experience for Azure data services on VMware,” said Jason Zander, executive vice president, Microsoft Azure at Microsoft Corp.

“The market is going through a generational shift in how applications are built, run, and managed. Both Oracle and VMware are well positioned to help global customers with that transition,” said Vinay Kumar, vice president, product management, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. “Working with VMware, Oracle will further empower developers and IT to build and deliver modern applications on high performance and automated Oracle Gen 2 Cloud infrastructure, leveraging the VMware Tanzu portfolio and advancements in VMware Cloud Foundation and VMware vSphere to increase developer productivity.”

Redis Labs
“The integration between the VMware Tanzu portfolio and Redis Enterprise builds on our longstanding partnership to deliver a proven platform that customers want to use and deploy. Customers want an easier path to deploy more use cases with Redis Enterprise so they can accelerate development time, reduce costs, and get access to richer data with lower latency so they can deliver more value at greater velocity to the business,” said Alvin Richards, chief product officer at Redis Labs “VMware Tanzu Application Service and Tanzu Kubernetes Grid enables developers to deploy their application, services, and data layers through one framework, simplifying the work to transform existing code bases or greenfield developments to take advantage of microservice architectures and Redis Enterprise.”


Juergen Mueller, SAP chief technology officer, said, “SAP has been investing in modern application platforms as a next step in our core offerings. Kubernetes, cloud native architectures, and microservices define ways we build our next-generation environment and help enable our customers to consume SAP applications and services directly from us or from the major hyperscalers. Our vision includes relying on Kubernetes to run containerized applications across multiple clouds including hybrid cloud environments. We are collaborating with VMware to integrate our open source project ‘Gardener‘ with VMware’s flagship virtualization product. This will help enable mutual customers to run, manage, and scale their SAP applications on Kubernetes clusters on premise and in the native public cloud in a simplified, end-to-end automated and repeatable fashion.”
