VMware's April 20th launch of Photon and Lightware

Over the last couple of weeks there's been a lot of talk about products being launched by VMware's relatively new Cloud-Native Applications division. Now the launch date is here and even though it's not quite launch time yet, the cat is out of the bag.

The products are currently known as;
Project Photon - A stripped down Linux version optimised to run on the vSphere hypervisor which is designed solely to host and package containers.
Project Lightwave - An Identity and Access Management (IAM) tool which ties in to existing  VMware authentication products.
