The platform also added an integration with VMware’s container orchestrator, Enterprise PKS, which means cloud providers can offer containers-as-a-service. And at VMworld the vendor will showcase a technology preview of vCloud Director integration with Bitnami Community.
VMware bought Bitnami in May. It provides application packaging targeted at container and Kubernetes environments. The Bitnami Community houses one of the largest catalogs of click-to-deploy applications and development stacks. Combining this with and Enterprise PKS will allow VMware Cloud Providers to “provide a cloud that’s developer ready, and offer both VM-based workloads and container-based workloads from the same platform,” Bhardwaj said
