Enabling Self-Service Kubernetes Automation with vRealize Automation and Tanzu Kubernetes Grid

Welcome to the VMware
vRealize Automation, November 2021 Launch!

As the state of multi-cloud computing
continues to shape today’s enterprises, this month’s launch features new
capabilities around Kubernetes automation and resource policies to reduce management
complexity that comes with your evolving multi-cloud infrastructure environments.

Self-Service Kubernetes
Automation with VMware vRealize Automation

While Kubernetes has been
popular with developers for a number of years, it’s now moving steadily into
production environments as enterprises embrace its operational value. In this
emerging ecosystem, Kubernetes is becoming the new infrastructure paradigm for
modern, containerized applications as organizations build out their hybrid and
mullti-cloud computing strategies.

With the November 2021 launch, vRealize Automation is now enabling DevOps teams to request vSphere with Tanzu Kubernetes Grid (TKGs) clusters in a self-service fashion, either via VMware Cloud Templates, or via the vRealize Automation Service Broker self-service catalog interface. VMware Tanzu Kubernetes Grid (TKGs), is a multi-cloud Kubernetes footprint that you can run both on-premises in vSphere and in the public cloud on AWS and Microsoft Azure. It ensures that you’re running the same conformant K8s across your infrastructure, resulting in a consistent and secure experience for development teams. Following this enhancement, users can create TKGs clusters to extend the automated provisioning and management services of TKGs across their vSphere environment.

SaltStack SecOps and CarbonBlack

This month’s vRealize
8.6.1 release also features new integration between VMware
vRealize Automation SaltStack SecOps
and VMware CarbonBlack
Protect. With this update, you can now download CarbonBlack scan
results directly into SaltStack SecOps to automate remediation for known
vulnerabilities. Customers gain intelligent vulnerability insights coupled with
IT automation for closed-loop detection and instant remediation of
misconfigurations. vRealize Automation SaltStack SecOps is the available
security and compliance component for vRealize Automation. vRealization
Automation customers, including vRealize Suite Advanced and Enterprise
customers, may purchase SaltStack SecOps and add powerful capabilities that
reduce time from vulnerability discovery to remediation and improve security
and compliance through a unified, automated solution.

CarbonBlack Integration here.

Limit Policy to define Deployment and Deployment Resource Limits

One of the top reasons vRealize
Automation is trusted by large enterprises is its flexible yet deep multi-cloud
governance model. New deployment limit policies allow cloud administrators
within vRealize Automation to define limits around CPU count, memory, and VM,
on the cloud template level. Administrators can define deployment resource
limits within a larger deployment, while enforcing tailored policies for
specific projects. This enables more granular control over the size and scale
of individual deployments that are tied to specific catalog items, with an
extra layer of policies to manage your enterprise resources. You can define
logical constructs for specific use cases and apply custom limits whether it’s
across clouds, projects, individual users, or cloud templates.
