VMware is including the Pod Security Policy capability, which is still considered to be a beta feature in the open-source Kubernetes cloud-native container orchestration project, as a supported component in its enterprise-grade Kubernetes platform. VMware announced version 1.4 of Enterprise PKS on April 23, bringing new functionality to help organizations operationalize the cloud-native Kubernetes container orchestration platform. PKS, which is an acronym for the Pivotal Container Service, is a joint product effort from VMware and its partner Pivotal, integrating Kubernetes with components from Pivotal as well as VMware. The PKS 1.4 update is based on the Kubernetes 1.13 release and integrates new security and automation capabilities, as well as the inclusion of VMware's NSX-T 2.4 virtual networking technology. "NSX-T 2.4 is included with a VMware Enterprise PKS license," Scott Buchanan, senior director of the Cloud Native Apps Business Unit at VMware, told eWEEK. "Part of the value of VMware Enterprise PKS is that the components—including NSX-T—are integrated, validated and more readily deployed by the customer." PKS was launched in August 2017 and has received multiple incremental updates over the past year and a half. The previous release was PKS 1.3,which was announced on Jan. 16, integrating support for Kubernetes 1.12.
Virtualization Review | April 11, 2019
Cisco Systems followed up on its ACI Anywhere initiative announced last January that seeks to extend its software-defined networking (SDN) technology called Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) beyond the datacenter -- in this case to the AWS cloud. To do that, the company this week unveiled Cisco Cloud ACI for AWS, which follows on the ACI Anywhere initiative the company previously announced in order to broaden ACI's reach to the AWS and Microsoft Azure clouds. At the time, Cisco said its ACI Anywhere datacenter networking initiative provided flexible deployment options, along with the ability to deploy apps based on business needs criteria rather than technology limitations. "It delivers operational simplicity, application agility and protection in the datacenter -- all delivered in a uniquely open approach that integrates with all hypervisors and container frameworks on which applications are deployed," the company said in announcing the initiative in January. "With ACI Anywhere, that journey extends ACI to any workload, any location, any cloud. Virtual ACI already supports bare metal clouds and remote edge locations.
