vSphere Integrated Containers is a vSphere feature that allows VI admins to create container hosts that are deeply integrated with vSphere. Once provisioned by the VI admin, developers are able to use the Docker CLI and API to run images in secure Container VMs. This gives developers self-service capabilities while at the same time allowing VI admins to control resource allocation. Since vSphere Integrated Containers uses native vSphere constructs, it allows you to leverage your existing infrastructure, tooling, policies and processes to manage containerized applications.
VMware now provides a fundamentals course about vSphere Integrated Container, which you can find here.
