Comment Do you remember those guys that invented virtualization, founded a company, got rich and lived happily ever after, remembered fondly by all? Well, that’s almost the story of VMware.

Cisco throws everything it has at containers, hybrid cloud

Cisco has decided to throw everything it has at containers by releasing its very own “Container Platform”. At first blush the Platform isn’t much more than Kubernetes, and Cisco doesn’t claim that it can do much more than anyone else’s packaging of the Google-derived container-manager.
