The Gestalt IT staff writes that AWS’s development of Elastic Container Service (ECS) and Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) “greatly simplify deploying, managing, and maintaining a container orchestrator system.” Check out the Gestalt IT take on the latest from AWS and check out the AWS presentations on our website!

VMware on AWS VPC Route Table Example

At Cloud Field Day this month, Alex Neihaus got a deep dive into VMware’s AWS integration. When this was first announced in 2016, he saw it as two walled gardens put next to each other. After the event, he’s beginning to see some portholes getting put in to see to the other side. Alex saw the presentation as confirming that VMware fundamentally perceives AWS as a hardware platform for its hypervisor, rather than a virtualization platform. He has a lot of interesting takeaways, so be sure to read the whole piece.
