VMware Embraces Kubernetes in Container Push

“We have now built a Kubernetes-as-a-service capability into Photon Platform,” Jared Rosoff, chief technologist for cloud native apps at VMware, told eWEEK.

The overall Photon effort at VMware has been under development since April 2015, when the company first announced Photon OS, a Linux operating system for container deployment that runs as a guest on a VMware ESX virtualization hypervisor. The Photon OS reached its 1.0 milestone in June. In addition to Photon OS, the Photon Platform includes the Photon Controller, providing a control plane for container deployment, Rosoff explained.
