VMware offers a portfolio of container management and application modernization solutions, under the Tanzu brand. These offerings provide container management of both hybrid and multi-cloud environments, including operating on all three major public clouds.
Customers desiring integrated application modernization tools – and easy integration of relational database will find a rich suite of services to choose from; details are provided below.
VMware is also highly focused on assisting customers with professional expertise; the company is best-in-market for providing professional services to assist customers with creating and executing a Kubernetes orchestration and application modernization strategy.
However, while the container management offerings include both software platform options for the customer to control and operate with his own staff, and managed service offerings operated by Tanzu staff from the cloud, the options are not functionally equivalent. Customers with the need for an air-gapped offering, or strong preferences for a self-managed option (or concerns that they may need one in the future) will need to take this into consideration.
Basically, the VMware container management platform (customer-managed) offerings are better suited to managing one to a few Kubernetes clusters. The requirements of larger, scaled-out Enterprise environments are served solely through Tanzu-managed container services.
