Simplifying Kubernetes with Portainer 2.0 CE

I think it would be a very brave person to claim that Kubernetes, Docker or containers in general was straight forward. There is intrinsic complexity that comes with a containerization and this is no better proven in the increasing ecosystem of management platforms for Kubernetes such as Project Pacific from VMware and others that are […] Read More

vSphere 7 Announcement – Project Pacific is Finally Here!

It didn’t seem that long ago that at VMworld 2019 in San Francisco where VMware announced Project Pacific. At the time I wrote about how I thought that it was a stroke of Kubernetes genius. After going through all the subsequent pre release and NDA materials and having played a little bit with the Project […] Read More

Deploying a Kubernetes Sandbox on VMware with Terraform

Terraform from HashiCorp has been a revelation for me since I started using it in anger last year to deploy VeeamPN into AWS. From there it has allowed me to automate lab Veeam deployments, configure a VMware Cloud on AWS SDDC networking and configure NSX vCloud Director Edges. The time saved by utilising the power […] Read More

The Separation of Dev and Ops is Upon Us!

Apart from the K word, there was one other enduring message that I think a lot of people took home from VMworld 2019. That is, that Dev and Ops should be considered as seperate entities again. For the best part of the last five or so years the concept of DevOps, SecOps and other X-Ops […] Read More

VMworld 2019 Review – Project Pacific is a Stroke of Kubernetes Genius… but not without a catch!

Kubernetes Kubernetes, Kubernetes… say Kubernetes one more time… I dare you! If it wasn’t clear what the key take away from VMworld 2019 was last week in San Francisco then I’ll repeat it one more time… Kubernetes! It was something which I predicted prior to the event in my session breakdown. And all jokes aside, […] Read More
