Modernizing Applications with VMware

Modernizing Applications with VMware

Modern applications allow organizations to rapidly deliver new digital experiences to their customers. But without the right tools and strategy in place, it can be challenging to transform legacy applications and infrastructure. Our close alignment with VMware, coupled with our DevOps experience and capabilities available in the Advanced Technology Center (ATC), help organizations efficiently build, run and manage modern applications while improving the developer experience to deliver software faster.

 

 

VMware Solutions and Services

 

Build Modern Applications

Operate complete DevOps solutions and improve the developer experience.

VMware’s approach to building modern applications is intended to be open and highly integrable, supporting open-source and standardized software like Kubernetes. In addition to being one of the largest contributors of Kubernetes, VMware also supports existing and highly utilized development frameworks, tools and languages like .NET, Spring, Node and JavaScript to improve the developer experience. Integration of existing software development lifecycle tools like GitLab and Jenkins, combined with Tanzu components, enable organizations to build complete DevOps solutions. VMware Pivotal Labs helps organizations modernize their applications and upskill their teams simultaneously.

Run Applications Anywhere

Speed up Kubernetes adoption and simplify cloud migration.

A path to modernizing applications and having the ability to host them are equally important. Kubernetes can be challenging and often involves operating two separate environments for old and new applications. VMware’s technologies allow for all applications — legacy apps, modern apps and apps in the process of being modernized — to run alongside one another, making Kubernetes easier to stand up and utilize. This provides organizations a predictable and familiar operational model as they progress in their application modernization journey. Additionally, VMware Multicloud, which is supported on major public clouds like AWS and Azure, provides organizations a unified management plane to seamlessly migrate applications to the cloud and leverage a multicloud strategy.

Manage Applications Across Clouds

Use and centrally manage and monitor all clouds, clusters and applications.

Manage any Kubernetes-based development platform and monitor any application down to the infrastructure level. Applications can exist wholly in a private cloud, public cloud or span multiple clouds, and can be written in differing frameworks and languages. No matter the combination, VMware's tools enable centralized management within a single control plane.

Container Platforms

Containers make it possible to package up an entire runtime environment into a standard unit of software, while container platforms provide automation and orchestration. This gives applications greater flexibility and the ability to rapidly scale so they can run smoothly and quickly. Learn how our Container Platforms Practice helps organizations enable continuous delivery of value to end users.
