Dynatrace support for VMware PKS?

Hi,

We are reviewing CaaS platforms and VMware PKS seems like one of the better fits for our company. From an informal feedback from VMware, they have said Dynatrace Managed(or other) is not supported on their implementation Kubernetes on VMware PKS(Pivotal Kubernetes Service). I would like to know if anyone else possibly did manage to get around this challenge and still used Dynatrace. I would say it should be possible as they are using BOSH and one should be able to run incl. Dynatrace as part of the "stemcell" which in this case is running a slim down version of Ubuntu.

Any guidance on this would be appreciated. Thank you.

Best Regards,

Leslie

Hi Leslie,

Dynatrace should work for PKS. The deployment of the Dynatrace OneAgent can be done via BOSH addon using the same mechanism as for Pivotal PAS. See here: https://www.dynatrace.com/support/help/cloud-plat...

Hi Leslie,
I'd also like to point you towards a blog post on PKS https://www.dynatrace.com/news/blog/monitoring-mul...

Also, we've recently announced a new release of the OneAgent BOSH add-on: https://www.dynatrace.com/news/blog/new-release-of...

Please let me know if you have further questions.
