Top challenges delivering Kubernetes on VMware

Talent Scarcity

Talent scarcity
Hiring and retaining in-demand Kubernetes operational expertise is very difficult.

Day-2 Operations Complexity

Day-2 Operations are complex
Kubernetes is notoriously difficult to deploy and operate at scale for Production, mission critical workloads.

No Native Support

VMware lacks native support for Kubernetes
VMware was not designed to run containerized workloads.

Cost Control

Lack of cost control and governance
This leads to resource sprawl with associated spiralling costs and compliance violations.
