Kubeapps: An Open Source Application Dashboard for Kubernetes from Bitnami by VMware Tanzu

Kubeapps is one of the open source projects that the Bitnami team at VMware contributes to, and it is among the 100+ pre-packaged open source images present in Bitnami Application Catalog and VMware Tanzu Application Catalog (the enterprise edition of Bitnami Application Catalog). This blog presents an overview of Kubeapps and how you can use it to simplify your Kubernetes application deployments.

Why You Need Different Backup Solutions for VMs and Containers

Applications running in virtual machines (VMs) are mostly static and single tenant, relying on backup of the file system. Kubernetes is a multitenant environment with lots of metadata information (e.g., config maps, secrets, pods, etc.) and distributed applications. So, a Kubernetes data protection solution needs to understand Kubernetes patterns to deal with continuous changes inside a cluster, and a cloud native data protection solution should be application-centric and not infrastructure-centric.

Does Your API Need a REST? Check Out GraphQL

GraphQL is a declarative query language that simplifies retrieving data from an application's back end. It provides a clear and comprehensive description of the data in your API, giving you the ability to request only what you need. This makes it easy to evolve APIs over time and enables powerful developer tools.

Building Cloud-Ready Applications

With globally distributed applications (and teams), the job of software architect isn’t getting any easier; applications are growing increasingly complex, and architects are spread thin. You can’t be involved with every decision. You must empower your teams while ensuring they make good choices. How do you do that? How can frameworks, such as Spring for Java and Steeltoe for.NET, not only make your life easier but also help your teams deliver robust applications to production?

What to Expect from Your Application Platform

As enterprises see the need to accelerate their software development processes, traditional operations teams are evolving to become platform engineering teams. These teams are tasked with designing and building self-service platforms for development teams that reduce the amount of work required to build, deploy and operate software securely, all while accelerating the development teams in delivering business outcomes.

You Don't Need Kubernetes to Be Cloud Native

Kubernetes is all the rage, but did you know cloud native development predates its invention? This session will give an overview of VMware Tanzu Application Service and the surrounding Cloud Foundry ecosystem that powers it. Learn how the iconic cf push set the gold standard in developer experience and cloud native development more than a decade ago. In this video, we explore additional services of the platform surrounding logging, cloud native service brokers, databases/middleware as a service, and automation frameworks. This session will show how you can enable your organization with all the benefits of a cloud native application platform without the burden of managing and maintaining Kubernetes.

For the Kubernetes Value Line Look to Open Source Innovation

Kubernetes has emerged as a transformative force, reshaping the way organizations develop, deploy, and manage applications. Adoption of containers and Kubernetes has ballooned in the past years, as heralded by everyone from the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) itself, to the vendors offering their Kubernetes wares, to the research firms that track trends in enterprise technology adoption.

How to Manage, Unmanage, and Move Clusters Between Cluster Groups

Learn how to move a cluster using the VMware Tanzu Mission Control UI and how to unmanage and manage a cluster. A managed cluster can be lifecycle managed by Tanzu Mission Control even if it was created outside of the tool. This option goes beyond attaching a cluster because it includes lifecycle management (LCM) capabilities, while attached clusters do not include LCM support.
