VMware Pivotal Container Service (PKS), helps enterprise or service provider organization to deploy and consume container services with Kubernetes, built with high availability, security and operational efficiency. Great now cloud-native applications are running but how to monitor these workloads? Do we need to rely on third-party/open source monitoring solution or can we leverage vRealize Operations manager (vROPs) to monitor this Nex-Gen Infrastructure? This video shows how to use vRealize Operations to do monitoring and logging for PKS.
PKS is a purpose-built container solution to operationalize Kubernetes for multi-cloud enterprises and service providers. It significantly simplifies the deployment and management of Kubernetes clusters with day 1 and day 2 operations support. With hardened production-grade capabilities, PKS takes care of your container deployment from the application layer all the way to the infrastructure layer. PKS is built in with critical production capabilities such as high availability, auto-scaling, health-checks and self-healing of underlying VMs, and rolling upgrades for Kubernetes clusters. With constant compatibility to GKE, PKS provides the latest stable Kubernetes release so developers have the latest features and tools available to them. It also integrates with VMware NSX-T for advanced container networking including micro-segmentation, ingress controller, load balancing and security policy. Through an integrated private registry, PKS secures container image via vulnerability scanning, image signing and auditing.
PKS exposes Kubernetes in its native form without adding any layers of abstraction or proprietary extensions, which lets developers use the native Kubernetes CLI that they are most familiar with. PKS can be easily deployed and operationalized via Pivotal Operations Manager, which allows a common operating model to deploy PKS across multiple IaaS abstractions like vSphere and Google Cloud Platform.
