New and Noteworthy:
Grant Shipley, OpenShift boss, leaves Red Hat for VMware – This is great news for VMware and for our cloud-native strategy over the next couple of years, lending further legitimacy to the work that we’ve been doing in this space. This is a view shared outside of our circle of evangelists here at VMware – the CRN article linked above published the following quote from an industry executive:

“Look, VMware is going all in on Kubernetes. They acquired Heptio. They’re investing tons of money on containers and transforming really quickly into the modern developer leader and hybrid cloud leader. There’s endless potential for combining VMware and Pivotal,” said the CEO, who did not wish to be identified. “So if you see someone like [Shipley] leaving Red Hat and their new home at IBM to take over Kubernetes at VMware – that speaks volumes to where this market is heading.”
