In October we have three open source-focused webinars scheduled, bring your questions and come join us!




Harbor is an open source cloud native registry that securely stores container images, signs them as trusted, and scans them for vulnerabilities.

Harbor solves common challenges by delivering trust, compliance, performance, and interoperability. It fills a gap for organizations and applications that cannot use a public or cloud-based registry, or want a consistent experience across clouds.

During this webinar, project lead James Zabala will demonstrate how Harbor can be used to provide a consistent cross-cloud registry experience. We’ll also discuss Harbor’s architecture, deployment options, and the project’s roadmap.


James Zabala is an open source lead on the VMware cloud-native applications team and a maintainer for Harbor, a project hosted by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation. His current focus is the open source cloud native ecosystem and has previously led the creation of various developer-focused platforms at VMware.

Image result for vsphere integrated containers

Docker has gained a lot of momentum with developers, who use it to build and deploy applications. But what works fine in development needs to be taken into production eventually. The question becomes, how do you run containers on your existing VMware vSphere infrastructure?


vSphere Integrated Containers Engine is an open source project designed to tightly integrate container workflows, life cycles, and provisioning with the VMware software-defined data center (SDDC). In vSphere Integrated Containers, a container is a hardware-virtualized first-class citizen on the hypervisor provisioned into a Virtual Container Host (VCH) and able to directly integrate with vSphere infrastructure capabilities, such as networking and storage features.


Interested to hear how you can provide a native Docker experience for end users while maintaining a vSphere experience for IT? Join us for our next open source webinar in which  Patrick Daigle will walk you through how vSphere Integrated Containers works and how it provides an ideal way to host containers on vSphere. See a live demo on how vSphere Integrated Containers leverages vSphere for isolation and scheduling. You will also hear some of the learnings from real-world use cases.


Patrick Daigle is a Senior Technical Marketing Architect in Montreal, Canada. As part of the VMware Cloud-Native Applications business unit, he is a member of the product management team building solutions to run containers on vSphere. He works with enterprises around the globe, explaining and demonstrating the benefits of VMware container solutions and how they can bring value to the business.

BOSH and the vSphere Cloud Provider Interface


The vision of the vSphere Cloud Provider Interface (CPI) is to make VMware vSphere one of the best IaaS platforms out there to deploy BOSH and Cloud Foundry applications to. This is done by exposing several key features in vSphere, which brings a lot of value to users of BOSH. There have been many major improvements and feature additions since the vSphere CPI project ownership was transferred over to VMware at the end of 2017, and we would love to tell you all about it.

In this webinar, we will briefly talk about BOSH and how it ties into the widely used vSphere CPI. We will then do a deep dive into the architecture of the vSphere CPI, go over some of the key BOSH workflows, and look at what happens under the hood in the CPI. Then we will give you a peek into what our roadmap looks like and present live demos.
