Introducing Anka

Today, Veertu Labs is thrilled to pull back the curtain on three Anka toolsets, our latest endeavors geared towards making macOS and iOS development infrastructure management simple and streamlined. Anka technology is a suite of three products that are built to bring the experience of working with containers to the complex macOS/iOS development process. We […]

Listening, Growing and Adapting

It’s been nine months since we launched Veertu Native, the first version of our native MacOS virtualization platform based on Apple’s Hypervisor.framework. In these nine months, Veertu Native has seen significant adoption, and we are learning a lot from our users. We are also growing as a company. We expanded our development team with excellent […]

With the recent attention and focus on this framework, we thought it would be […]

The March towards adoption of OS X Hypervisor.Framework for Native Virtualization capabilities

Today, Docker announced beta availability of Docker for Mac, built on top of xhyve, one of the derivatives of OS X Hypervisor.Framework. This demonstrates two things – OS X recently released Hypervisor.Framework is a better architecture for developing virtualization on top of OS X, as opposed to installing layers of virtualization products. As a quick […]

Developers, their desktop and dev environments in 2016

While the survey has insights on trends on dev languages, technology stack etc., one of the highlighted trend was the increasing adoption of Mac OS X as the desktop OS of choice […]
