Breakout Session

You Don’t Need Kubernetes to Be Cloud Native

Nick Kuhn, Senior Technical Marketing Architect, VMware

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. We will 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.
