Deploying Tanzu SQL to Tanzu Kubernetes Grid Clusters

  • simon 

Deploying Tanzu SQL to Tanzu Kubernetes Grid Clusters I’ve been reading up on the Tanzu SQL announcements I found a bit of time to have a look and some space on a Tanzu Kubernetes Grid (TKG) cluster deployed via the excellent TKG demo appliance fling. What Tanzu SQL does is enables us to operate a relational database-as-a-service function, running on any cloud.  A relation database-as-a-service function enables a developer the flexibility to install and self-manage… Read More »Deploying Tanzu SQL to Tanzu Kubernetes Grid Clusters

vSphere with Tanzu Kubernetes – Day 2 Operations for the VI Admin

vSphere with Tanzu Kubernetes – Day 2 Operations for the VI Admin As part of a recent Canadian UserCon event myself and Dean Lewis poured many hours of blood, sweat and swearing into creating the session “vSphere with Tanzu Kubernetes – Day 2 Operations for the VI Admin”.  The basic premise of the presentation was set at around a level-100 introduction to the Kubernetes world and marrying that to your knowledge of VMware vSphere as… Read More »vSphere with Tanzu Kubernetes – Day 2 Operations for the VI Admin

Tanzu Mission Control – Adding a vSphere 7 Tanzu Kubernetes Cluster

Tanzu Mission Control – Adding a vSphere 7 Tanzu Kubernetes Cluster One of the great parts of my job is that I get to collaborate and learn from some seriously clever folk in my team and across the company.  Over the past few weeks I’ve been working in the same lab as Dean Lewis.  We’ve been exploring Cloud Foundation 4, Tanzu, Bitnami, Openshift and how those components integrate with the existing VMware SDDC portfolio. Tanzu… Read More »Tanzu Mission Control – Adding a vSphere 7 Tanzu Kubernetes Cluster

Project Octant – Graphical User Interface for Kubernetes

Project Octant – Graphical User Interface for Kubernetes By introducing new layers of abstraction through kubernetes, it is possible that this comes with additional complexity. Project Octant is a useful tool to add to the arsenal when trying to navigate how resources within a kubernetes cluster hang together, to describe kubernetes clusters in a manner that is perhaps more friendly to existing operation teams. Octant is a tool for developers to understand how applications run… Read More »Project Octant – Graphical User Interface for Kubernetes

Use an image hosted on Harbor – vSphere image registry

Use an image hosted on Harbor – vSphere image registry Last post I added an image to the vSphere image registry, which is great – but how can I actually use that image? The image I uploaded was for busybox, which provides access to a range of simple UNIX tools.  What I’m going to demonstrate is how to run the image from the image repository, demonstrate some basic commands in the busybox pod and how… Read More »Use an image hosted on Harbor – vSphere image registry

Push an image to Harbor – vSphere embedded image registry

  • simon 

Push an image to the vSphere embedded image registry Harbor is used to provide an image registry service to namespaces provisioned on vSphere – it can be deployed from a single click within the vSphere cluster configuration.  Once it has been deployed, you’ll be presented with a link to connect to the Harbor UI. Login to Harbor UI using vSphere SSO credentials, browse to the project and repository you want to work with and download… Read More »Push an image to Harbor – vSphere embedded image registry
