VMware upgrades the VMware Tanzu and VMware Aria platforms
VMware has announced the launch of new capabilities across its VMware Tanzu and VMware Aria platforms. These capabilities aim to empower customers to take a cloud-smart approach to modern application delivery across any cloud.
VMware highlighted the challenges faced by customers across the enterprise as they juggle multiple tools, teams, clouds and operating models while keeping developers productive and operations teams equipped to keep pace.
The Tanzu Application Platform 1.5 with its new capabilities, will enable companies to build and deploy more software, more quickly and securely through a rich set of developer tooling. The software enhances end-to-end app security, streamlines developer and platform engineering experiences and expands support for leading third-party integrations, including improved developer and platform engineering experiences.
In addition, VMware announced several updates to Tanzu for Kubernetes Operations to increase security, choice, and operational efficiency of multi-cluster and multi-Kubernetes platform operations across any cloud. Tanzu Mission Control now supports full lifecycle management of new and existing AWS EKS clusters. It also allows the modification of OPA Gatekeeper policy settings at all levels, such as organisation, cluster group, and cluster.
VMware is also introducing innovations across the VMware Aria platform, including Aria Hub powered by Aria Graph, Aria Cost powered by CloudHealth, and Aria Guardrails. These solutions help cloud operations teams to harness multi-cloud capabilities with intelligent insights into distributed environments, enabling optimized cost, performance, and security of applications and infrastructure aligned to business priorities. Increased governance, security, and cost management provided by the VMware Aria portfolio is vital for business leaders focused on efficiency and scale.
VMware is improving multi-cloud visibility with the addition of Google Cloud support in VMware Aria Hub Free Tier alongside AWS and Azure. It is also adding support for Kubernetes environments with a new infrastructure dashboard with service-to-service topology view and adding VMware Aria Guardrails capabilities, including landing zones policies templates and config drift management, to the Free Tier.
VMware continues to automate and streamline cloud infrastructure management with full-stack visibility across private, hybrid, and multi-cloud environments. VMware Aria Operations introduces a new integration with Aria Observability (a multi-cloud observability solution) to enable IT teams to gain contextualized visibility across their infrastructure, Kubernetes environments, and applications. The aim is to eliminate the need for disparate tools to effectively manage multi-clouds and provide a holistic platform view enabling faster troubleshooting and reducing mean-time-to-resolution to improve application performance
