SaaS Product Updates

VMware Application Catalog (VAC)

In July 2022, the user interface (UI) of VMware Application Catalog was merged with VMware Marketplace to simplify access for users. We have since realized, based on feedback from our customers, that the original design of having individual UIs for VMware Marketplace and VMware Application Catalog was the best approach. So, starting December 15, 2022, users will once again be able to directly access VMware Application Catalog from the VMware Cloud Services portal without having to go through VMware Marketplace. This change does not affect the functionality or the performance of VMware Application Catalog in any way, and the product inherently remains the same.
VMware Application Catalog UI Now Accessible Via VMware Cloud Services Portal

VMware Application Catalog extends support to JFrog Container Registry

VMware Application Catalog had Google Container Registry, Azure Container Registry, and Harbor as supported registries, but last month we announced support for Amazon Elastic Container Registry. Dec 1st , addition of yet another major container registry to our list, JFrog Container Registry.

Customer Success Stories

Fiserv with Tanzu Application Platform

Fiserv is a Leader in online payments and financial services solutions and Tom Eck, SVP of Digital Transformation, has played a critical role in their success.

“And what I think was probably the most impressive was not just how fast we moved it, but all the stuff that is included out of the box with Tanzu Application Platform is truly amazing. Everything from the observability and all those kinds of things that a lot of people think about the back end are built in, and it (Tanzu Application Platform) was a beautiful experience.” - Tom Eck, SVP of Digital Transformation

Fiserv Finds Innovation through Developer Experience (Blog)

VMware Tanzu Application Platform enabled the developer team at Fiserv to jumpstart development with a rich set of tooling and a pre-paved, customizable path to production for building and deploying applications on any cloud and any Kubernetes.

Java Buildpack 4.52 Deprecation of Spring Cloud Connectors & Spring Auto Reconfiguration

Product Announcement

Tanzu Network Users - Be aware of this important upcoming EULA changes

All Products to move to VMware General terms on the next new release (MAJOR OR MINOR).

To cause the least amount disruption to current customer workflows, the NEW EULA will be named VMware General Terms with doc slug vmware_general_terms .We will keep the old universal EULA as it is with the name VMware software EULA with the old doc slug vmware_eula. Existing releases which have been published will still be tied to the old Universal EULA.

Customers:

  • Customers will have to accept the VMware General Terms when consuming new major releases with VMware General Terms attached (expected behavior)
  • Customers will have to re-accept, now the VMware General Terms, when existing releases are changed to attach to VMware General Terms

API/Pivnet CLI Impact: Customers

  • When consuming a new release or an old release with the new VMware General Terms attached, customers can expect to see EULA missing errors. They will have to login and manually accept the EULA through UI and re-try their automation.

Product Issue Awareness

VMware Tanzu Application Services(TAS) and Tanzu Kubernetes Grid Integrated (TKGI)

Slab memory leak on Ubuntu Xenial stemcells - versions 621.241 and higher

Issue

Slab memory leak has been observed on TAS and TKGi environments utilizing Ubuntu Xenial stemcell versions 621.241 and higher. This issue may result in intermittent unresponsive VM's.

Cause

This problem has not been seen on all TAS and TKGi foundations but rather only ones with certain characteristics (BOSH add-ons, specific application workloads).

Resolution

If the problem began after a stemcell upgrade, then current remediation recommendations is to rollback stemcell (to 621.240 or lower) to earlier version. Check the above article for complete details and recommendations.

It was clear to us. To survive in the market, we needed to move our whole IT infrastructure to the cloud, to respond faster to the market and to legal changes. We needed to become cloud native.” - Lars Riedel, Executive Board Member and Head of Homebase Development and Operations, DATEV
 

DATEV Future-Proofs Data Center Strategy with Cloud Native Technology

DATEV engaged VMware Tanzu Labs to modernize its application infrastructure to provide a hybrid cloud foundation, built on VMware Cloud Foundation on VxRail.
