Additionally, we have launched the VMware Tanzu portfolio as well as VMware Cloud Foundation 4 and vSphere 7. Combined, these services offer the most extensive software stack for building and running applications. Customers can develop modern apps and update existing apps in their infrastructure at the same time.
Due to the amount of news over the past months, we can imagine not everyone is fully up to date. Therefore we have summarized the most important announcements. We will discuss these topics extensively during the four sessions at VMware vForum 2020 Online. So, make sure you attend if you wish to dive in deep and want to be able to determine how these developments can be applied to your organization.

VMware Cloud Foundation 4: Hybrid cloud infrastructure for modern apps
VMware Cloud Foundations 4 with Tanzu ensures hybrid cloud infrastructure with consistent management for VMware based as well as container based applications which already have intrinsic security and lifecycle management for software defined compute, storage and network sources. This new release includes VMware Cloud Foundation Services and integrated Kubernetes.
VMware vSphere 7: Basis for the modern hybrid cloud
This version of VMware vSphere is the biggest evolution of vSphere in the past decade. VMware vSphere 7 had its preview in August 2019 under the name Project Pacific. This project was aimed at the renewal of vSphere to an open platform that uses Kubernetes API’s for a cloud like experience for developers and operators.
As basic component of the VMware Tanzu portfolio, this new release supports modern as well as traditional applications by using a combination of virtual machines, containers and Kubernetes. VMware vSphere 7 helps developers and operators to be productive with faster-time-to-innovation combined with the security, stability and governance of a traditional enterprise infrastructure against lower costs.
