VMware Unveils an Identity and Access Management Project – Project Lightwave

New Open Source Projects to Accelerate Enterprise Adoption of Cloud-Native Applications

VMware has released two new open source projects built to enable enterprise adoption of cloud-native applications – Project Lightwave, an identity and access management project that will extend enterprise-scale and security to cloud-native applications; and Project Photon, a lightweight Linux operating system optimized for cloud-native applications.

Designed to help enterprise developers securely build, deploy and manage cloud-native applications, these new open source projects will integrate into VMware’s unified platform for the hybrid cloud – creating a consistent environment across the private and public cloud to support cloud-native and traditional applications.

By open sourcing these projects, VMware will work with a broad ecosystem of partners and the developer community to drive common standards, security and interoperability within the cloud-native application market – leading to improved technology and greater customer choice.

“Through these projects VMware will deliver on its promise of support for any application in the enterprise – including cloud-native applications – by extending our unified platform with Project Lightwave and Project Photon,” said Kit Colbert, vice president and chief technology officer for Cloud-Native Applications, VMware, Inc. “Used together, these new open source projects will provide enterprises with the best of both worlds. Developers benefit from the portability and speed of containerized applications, while IT operations teams can maintain the security and performance required in today’s business environment.”

With today’s announcement VMware is looking to help enterprise developers securely build, deploy and manage modern, distributed applications. The open source projects are lightweight, highly scalable technologies optimized for securing and running containerized applications in a virtual environment. The projects are designed to bring both developers and IT operations teams together by streamlining engineering throughout the application lifecycle from developer desktop to production. Over time, these technologies are expected to be further integrated within VMware’s software-defined data center and end-user computing portfolios to help enterprises embrace containerized applications and benefit from VMware’s industry-leading compute, networking, security, storage, and management solutions.
