VMware to Support Docker Containers on its vSphere

VMware is previewing two key technologies for cloud-native apps running in Docker containers on VMware vSphere:

AppCatalyst --  an API and Command Line Interface (CLI)-driven hypervisor for replicating a private cloud locally on a desktop for building and testing containerized and microservices-based applications. The tool features Project Photon, an open source minimal Linux container host, Docker Machine and integration with Vagrant.

Project Bonneville -- software that enables the seamless integration of Docker container
s into the VMware vSphere platform and allow virtual administrators to use their existing operational and management processes and tools such as VMware vCenter Server without the need for new tools or additional training. Project Bonneville downloads containers from Docker Hub, and isolates and starts up each container in a virtual machine with minimal overhead using the Instant Clone feature of VMware vSphere. Together, Project Bonneville and Instant Clone will make virtual machines lightweight enough to support one container per virtual machine.

"Developers are rapidly adopting Docker to ship apps faster, whether to their private or public cloud infrastructures," said Scott Johnston, senior vice president of product, Docker. "VMware AppCatalyst and Project Bonneville will make it easier for developers and IT/operations teams alike to take advantage of existing management, compliance, networking and security processes and tools to run Dockerized applications."
