VMware is open-sourcing some of the key components of its newly announced Tanzu project, a portfolio of projects, products, and services for building, running, and managing modern applications and infrastructure. Initially, VMware will be moving three key projects from Tanzu to its GitHub repository. These projects include Velero, Sonobuoy, and Octant.
The company has committed to moving other key cloud native projects to its open source GitHub repository over time. In a blog post, Joe Beda, a principle engineer at VMware said, “We are just getting started! VMware will continue to make meaningful contributions to the community, start new projects, and actively look to move projects with broad community engagement under neutral governance, such as the CNCF.
