Now its functionality has expanded to the point it handles just about everything in our new, modern, cloud-native computing cloudscape, including stateful, data-centric workloads.
A new free community edition of VMware Tanzu was unveiled during this week's VMworld 2021 online event, where a slew of news emerged about the jack-of-all-trades tool.
VMworld 2021 kicked off with a blitz of security-related announcements including developments in the company's "journey to Zero Trust," secure access service edge (SASE) improvements, new capabilities to fight ransomware and more.
VMware announced Cross-Cloud services, part of its strategy to help organizations get a handle on all of the complexities that come with multi-cloud implementations.
The company describes Tanzu Application Service as a modern runtime for microservices, targeting organizations that want to securely deploy and run microservices whether in the cloud or on-premises.
Brien Posey provides step-by-step instructions to install an agent onto a device so that AWS can discover and manage it.
"I'm not gonna lie, it's not really pretty. I could say it was really awful, because cyber insurance vendors are so hammered with claims that it's taking a long time for them to react."
Tom Fenton started this four-part series because he was interested in the Oracle Cloud's new ability to offer Arm-based compute instances, but limited "Always Free" capacity leads to disappointment in the final installment.
Enterprise SD-WAN deployments will see big jumps in the use of SASE and AI over the next few years, predicts research firm Gartner.
Brien Posey explains how to manage AWS "things" -- digital representations of IoT devices -- by categorize them so they can be easily tracked.
"Overall, there's not really a huge number of new features, and what there is, isn't all available for your traditional on-premises Windows Server," says our hands-on review expert, Paul Schnackenburg.

"A ransomware attack for your organization is not the same as traditional DR; it's not like you just press the big button and get yourself out of it."
Tom Fenton decides to set up and test the network between a VM and the outside world after previously detailing the Oracle Cloud's "Always Free" offering and using VMs as a web server.
"If you can get away with it, use microservices as your preferred architecture," advised DevOps application security expert Carlos Rivas in an online presentation last week.
Finding no one-stop-shop for a list of initial access vulnerabilities used by ransomware attackers, cybersecurity expert and <i>Virtualization & Cloud Review</i> tech event presenter Allan Liska started one on his own and crowdsourced the effort on Twitter.
Tom Fenton details the web server work he did in his experiment to use an "Always Free" Ubuntu 18.04 VM on Oracle Cloud to host a small web site.
The Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) is now incubating Crossplane, an open source project providing a Kubernetes add-on that acts as a universal control plane with which enterprises can consume infrastructure.
Research firm Dell'Oro Group said Cisco retained its market share lead in the SD-WAN space, but there was some movement among the rest of the top five vendors in its latest quarterly report.
To get a feel for the Oracle Cloud, Tom Fenton shows how easy it is to sign up for and create a web site on an x86 VM and a desktop on an Arm VM, here using the "Always Free" option.
Tom Fenton sneakily works around his 5-item limit to showcase even more goodies you need to check out in what might be the first big post-pandemic tech show allowing the option of in-person attendance.
