VMware Gets Serious About Containers And Kubernetes

“We want to be seen as the enterprise dial-tone for Kubernetes,” said Gelsinger in an interview with CRN. “We’re embracing Kubernetes as the native dial-tone for the VMware stack going forward. So you’ll see us build more and more of those capabilities into the core VMware platform.

Gelsinger said while the number of production deployments of containers is modest at this point, “there is consensus that people are going to move to a container-centric model in the future.”
