    vSphere with Tanzu delivers Kubernetes

    What is VMware Tanzu? VMware Tanzu is a full stack of capabilities for building and managing modern applications. It includes an enterprise-ready Kubernetes runtime along with simplified operations of clusters and apps across on premises, public cloud and edge. With VMware Tanzu, teams can make the most of containers and cloud native patterns to deliver software to production faster.

    Modern applications are more complex than traditional applications, as they are often made up of multiple VMs, containers, and services. vSphere with Tanzu helps address these challenges by enabling you to use your existing vSphere environment to deliver Kubernetes clusters at a rapid pace. Dell Technologies delivers integrated systems that enable you to implement Tanzu on your terms.
