How VMware Views the Intersection of Virtualization and Containers

10 May 2017 1:56pm, by

VMware is investing more deeply in the container native ecosystem. It has upped its involvement in open source communities through such efforts as Lightwave. But what is its approach when considering the intersection of virtualization and container technologies?

Paul Fazzone, in our interview with him from Dockercon 2017, for The New Stack Makers podcast, makes the point that there are several container frameworks now available, each has a specific view about the underlying infrastructure. The cloud providers each have their own infrastructure that have their own specific requirements.

VMware sees its technology as sitting between these cloud frameworks and the infrastructure itself. How that approach plays out is the subject of this conversation which touches on Docker, the different frameworks, Cloud Foundry and VMware’s perspective about cloud-native architectures.
