Kubernetes for the Enterprise

Ship Faster, Reduce Risk, Grow Your Business

March 28, 2018 • London, UK


Business execs are focused on growing revenue, improving customer service, and expanding into new markets. To achieve these strategic goals you need to build new apps and new apps functionality. The new normal is for car companies, banks and retailers to transform into software companies. But for IT organisations that often means a headache. Business users want their apps now, so development teams pick their favourite tools and begin creating apps. Then they ‘throw them over the wall’ to IT who are expected to run them reliably and securely at scale …. not just on day 1, but day 2, and day 3 and day 4. IT gets frustrated. Developers get frustrated. Business execs get frustrated. We need a solution.

The best in class companies have realised that to shorten the time from idea to production for an app, they need a platform. The platform must meet the needs of the developers and of IT operations. It must extend from the services consumed by the apps, all the way to the core of the infrastructure, allowing apps to be run reliably and securely at scale. We call this platform a Developer-Ready Infrastructure.

VMware has deep expertise. Pivotal has deep expertise in building and running apps. We are combining our expertise and products to deliver a comprehensive set of solutions that allow you to service containers and apps, securely and reliably at scale. Together we can help you implement Developer-Ready Infrastructure.

At this event, we will share more about how to approach Developer-Ready Infrastructure. Then drill down into specific offerings for building and running apps at scale—Pivotal Cloud Foundry plus VMware NSX-T—and for delivering containers as a service—Pivotal Container Service (PKS), which was recently announced with VMware and Google.
