VMware’s Kubernetes GM On Dell Integrations And Security Plan

‘We are making security an intrinsic part of the platform instead of a surrounding set of individual products focused on individual, narrow pieces of the security story,’ says Ray O’Farrell, VMware’s executive vice president and general manager, in an interview with CRN.

How will VMware’s Kubernetes capabilities become more integrated with VxRail and Dell Technologies’ hardware?

When you think about where most Kubernetes and cloud-native applications are running today, it tends to be in the cloud. So that’s where a lot of the focus has been. But more and more we see the immergence of this, what I call, the ‘wide edge.’ What I mean by that is compute living in a data center, living in hyper-converged infrastructure or living in telco infrastructure, which is not necessarily a large and sophisticated cloud, but it’s a relatively large amount of compute. That’s different from the deep and embedded edge.

So, in the wide edge you’d see a hyper-converged system like VxRail living on a factory floor or living in a cruise ship or in the centralized area of a telco organization. When we look at all of those today, just like the rest of the industry is embracing containers and Kubernetes, the same is beginning to appear in the wide edge. There are some very interesting opportunities for VMware at that wide edge because of our relationship with Dell, as well as other large server and hardware providers, but with Dell’s hyper-converged infrastructure in particular. And even around some of the products Dell has around gateways and embedded compute infrastructure.
