Virtualization software allows companies to get better utilization from their physical servers. A single physical host can manage multiple virtual machines using a hypervisor. VMware brought virtualization software to market, creating popular tools for allowing enterprises to deploy virtual machines throughout their organization.
Containers provide another improvement to server utilization. A virtual machine can be broken up into containers, allowing multiple services to run within a single VM. Containers proliferated after the popularization of Docker, and the Kubernetes open source container orchestration system grew to be the most common way of managing the large numbers of containers that were running throughout an organization.
As Kubernetes has risen to prominence, software infrastructure companies have developed Kubernetes services to allow enterprises to use Kubernetes more easily. VMware’s PKS is one example of a managed Kubernetes service.
Brad Meiseles is a senior director of engineering at VMware with more than nine years of experience with the company. He joins the show to discuss virtualization, Kubernetes, containers, and the strategy of a large infrastructure provider like VMware.
