We’re pleased to announce that Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) customers can now take full advantage of VMware Tanzu Standard edition with the Oracle Cloud VMware Solution. VMware Tanzu is VMware’s modern applications portfolio that includes products and services to modernize applications and infrastructure for delivering better software to production faster. Tanzu offers three editions: Basic, standard, and advanced. VMware now supports Tanzu Standard edition with Oracle Cloud VMware Solution, including full lifecycle management of Tanzu Kubernetes clusters through Tanzu Mission Control.

Tanzu Standard

Tanzu Standard edition provides a full enterprise-grade Kubernetes runtime with Tanzu Kubernetes Grid, which you can deploy across multiple environments: On-premises on vSphere, on VMware Cloud Foundation solutions, such as Oracle Cloud VMware Solution, on public clouds, and at the edge. Tanzu Standard also provides a global control plane, powered by Tanzu Mission Control, for consistent and efficient management of multiple Kubernetes clusters across teams and clouds.

VMware designed and built Tanzu Kubernetes Grid using the leading open source technologies of the Kubernetes ecosystem, such as Cluster API for cluster lifecycle management, Harbor for container registry, Prometheus and Grafana for platform monitoring, Fluent Bit for logging, and Contour for ingress.

Using the global control plane of Tanzu Standard, you also have access to the following key capabilities for streamlining the operations and management of their Kubernetes clusters:

  • Centralized lifecycle management: Provisioning, upgrading, scaling, and deleting Tanzu Kubernetes clusters

  • Attach to conformant Kubernetes clusters for consistent management

  • Global visibility of Kubernetes clusters and workloads across environments for quick identification of issues and troubleshooting

  • Manage access and security by applying consistent policies to a fleet of clusters at scale

  • Back up and restore clusters and namespaces with built-in Velero

  • Inspect customers for conformance using built-in Sonobuoy

VMware directly supports VMware Tanzu integration with Oracle Cloud VMware Solution.
