Cloud-native Workloads: DevOps Self Service
- January 12, 2022
There is nothing like a demo to make a concept real in the IT world. This blog describes one of a series of recorded demonstrations illustrating the use of APEX Cloud Services with VMware Tanzu, the platform for open-source-based cloud-native applications leveraging containers with Kubernetes orchestration.
Agile operations need speed. This has often led DevOps teams to go around IT Operations by using public cloud to get self-service access to a modern applications environment. This week we’re showcasing how DevOps teams can have a full self-service modern applications environment in their private infrastructure. This can be enabled by IT Operations teams in a way that provides central control over resource utilization.
The base platform is VMware Tanzu running on APEX Private Cloud Service. APEX Private Cloud simplifies VMware cloud adoption as a platform for application modernization. It is based on Dell EMC VxRail with VMware vSphere Enterprise Plus and vSAN Enterprise and is available as a 1- or 3-year subscription with hardware, software and services (deployment, rack integration, support and asset recovery) components included in a single monthly price. VMware Tanzu Basic Edition was added post-deployment to create the container-as-a-service platform with Kubernetes running integrated in the vSphere hypervisor.
Also leveraged is APEX Data Storage Services – an as-a-Service portfolio of scalable and elastic storage resources built on our industry-leading technologies. Our storage as-a-Service model simplifies the storage process giving you complete oversight of your storage resources, while freeing you from the hassles of day-to-day data storage management.
The DevOps Self Service demo shows:
