In this Feature Friday we discuss and demo the simple and rapid deployment of Tanzu-hosted Containers as-a-Service (CaaS) with VMware Cloud Foundation, secured by multi-tenancy with VMware Cloud Director on top of a VMware Cloud Foundation instance on VxRail.
This seems like the perfect solution, it is! Using Cloud Director multi-tenancy and simplifying deployment of tenant services over shared infrastructure and delivering Tanzu-based K8s CaaS means Cloud Providers can deliver innovative infrastructure and application services quickly with repeatability. How is this all accomplished? Through a jointly validated architectural specification, Dell Technologies and VMware have created a solution that offers CaaS, leveraging multi-tenant IaaS deployments, for container-based workloads across multi-clouds with VxRail and Cloud Foundation.
Deploying the Cloud Foundation components with the VMware lifecycle manager and the Cloud Provider components with the Cloud Provider lifecycle manager means that a large amount of this specification can be automated and hence void of human error, repeatable and fast. The Tanzu reference architecture for VxRail is a tested and validated design, featuring an agile release cadence that ensures a consistent platform in aiding digital transformation. In addition to Tanzu Reference Architecture, Tanzu Data Services can be included in this validated solution for running SQL/NoSQL caching, messaging and analytics, addressing scaling and multiple data service use cases. Using Dell APEX you can build a local cloud service to migrate and modernize on Tanzu Standard and VMware Cloud Foundation on VxRail, this is offered by Dell as a subscription based for OpEx efficiency and further financial models from Dell are available in addition to the Cloud Provider program points consumption.
