Last week I headed out to San Francisco to attend Kubecon and soak in the Kubernetes and devops-ecosystem goodness. As the event landing page explained:
KubeCon 2015 is the first inaugural community Kubernetes conference, fully dedicated to education and community engagement focused on early Kubernetes, production users and contributors.
As I normally do at events like this I prowled the halls to look for folks doing cool stuff to interview with my trusty Flipcam.
One of the people I chatted with was Kenneth Jung, developer lead on the Photon Controller team at VMware. The Photon Controller, in short, is a cloud scale IO solution for managing ESX. (One of the things Kenneth alludes to is the open sourcing of the Controller which ended up happening yesterday.)
Some of the ground Kenneth covers
- What is the photon controller – cloud scale io solution for managing ESX
- How the cluster manager makes deployment and management of large of container frameworks like Kubernetes, easy
- How VMware looks at VMs vs containers
- The Photon microvisor + Photon OS used in Photon Controller
- They will have a cloud foundry release early next year
- VMware extends container campaign with open source Photon Controller – InfoWorld
- VMware’s Photon Platform and How it Treats Containers – The NewStack
Pau for now…
