VMware unlocks power of Kubernetes and App Modernization for SEAsia’s Innovation Economy

The introduction of VMware Tanzu editions – each of which packages capabilities of the Tanzu portfolio into a solution that directly addresses a single, common customer challenge – along with skills training and development initiatives will further enable businesses in the region to embrace the full potential of modern apps and help businesses to respond, adapt and accelerate business growth amidst macroeconomic uncertainties.

VMware, a leading innovator in enterprise software, announced new offerings to help customers further accelerate their app and infrastructure modernization initiatives. VMware vSphere 7 Update 1, VMware vSAN 7 Update 1 and VMware Cloud Foundation 4.1 product releases help streamline customer adoption of Kubernetes and support stateful applications with new developer-ready capabilities and enhance scalability and operations with new features.

The introduction of VMware Tanzu editions – each of which packages capabilities of the Tanzu portfolio into a solution that directly addresses a single, common customer challenge – along with skills training and development initiatives will further enable businesses in the region to embrace the full potential of modern apps and help businesses to respond, adapt and accelerate business growth amidst macroeconomic uncertainties.

The pace of business innovation has emerged as a critical success factor for sustained growth in Southeast Asia as organizations grapple with the impacts from COVID-19 – uncertain market conditions and the unprecedented shift to a distributed and digitalized business and work environment. Recent research from VMware showed that APAC organizations that adopted a software-led transformation approach were better positioned to weather the impact of business downturns due to their improved delivery of modern applications. The study also showed that higher growth APAC companies are spending more time on innovation than their lower performing counterparts (49% vs. 44%), with a greater proportion of agile steps in the app development process (58% vs 46%).

“As organizations continue to adapt their business and operational models to the fast-changing economic environment in Southeast Asia, those that are able to continuously innovate faster and more securely can  achieve more impactful business outcomes, enabling them compete more effectively,” said Kip Cole, VP, Tanzu Asia Pacific & Japan. “With one of the industry’s most comprehensive software stack for modern apps, VMware empowers enterprises with greater agility and time-to-market, delivering hyper-personalized experiences to customers as they build, run, manage, connect and protect their apps across any cloud and any device.”

Delivering Developer-Ready Infrastructure

At VMworld 2019 US, VMware unveiled the Tanzu portfolio and the tech preview of Project Pacific—to rearchitect vSphere into an open platform using Kubernetes APIs. In a year’s time, VMware has delivered a comprehensive software stack that enables customers to modernize existing applications and infrastructure and develop new, modern applications.

The next phase of Project Pacific with new product releases will help customers rapidly adopt Kubernetes. VMware vSphere with Tanzu will provide a simple way for hundreds of thousands of vSphere customers globally to get started with Kubernetes and modernize the 70 million-plus workloads running on vSphere.
