Tanzu Application Platform Key Capabilities

Enhance developer productivity and user experience

Unlock developer productivity with a Kubernetes abstraction layer enabling faster, more secure app design, development, and delivery.

Jumpstart app development. Use preconfigured cloud native pattern templates to bootstrap new applications.

Boost developer velocity. Get a consistent GUI to bring services and APIs together in one management portal.

Accelerate the path to production. Secure software supply chains automate out-of-the-box app deployment.

Runs on any compliant public cloud or on-premises Kubernetes cluster

Tanzu Application Platform supports a multi-cloud environment and runs on any API-conformant Kubernetes distribution.

Build with a modular, composable platform

Operations teams use Supply Chain Choreographer to create preapproved paths to production with security and compliance baked in to take the committed code to production. The platform is modular so teams can easily swap the supply chain components to meet business needs. Ops teams can customize the supply chain to use their favorite tools and pre-built container images.

Rely on a repeatable, end-to-end DevSecOps experience

Delight developers. With quick onboarding, instant access to dev tooling for rapid iteration, and the ability to debug code straight from their IDE, developers can deliver apps to production seamlessly and more securely.

Enhance DevOps efficiency. As developers commit code, the supply chain is triggered automatically, providing a continuous path to production. This makes the handoff from Dev to Ops frictionless.



Use Cases

Supporting icon Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) for Kubernetes

Organizations that deploy cloud native applications on Kubernetes infrastructure—whether that’s provided by public-cloud or self-owned on-premises infrastructure. Looking to unlock developer productivity to develop apps quickly on Kubernetes with simplicity of PaaS. Free developers from dealing with everyday operations and giving them more time to focus on the code than infrastructure.

Supporting icon App modernization and legacy app migration

Evolve important business apps interacting with middleware stacks that are 10–15 years old. Eliminate inflexible app servers and stacks that don’t support automation. Take a pragmatic approach to transforming legacy apps: Use a modern, cloud native architecture and DevOps approach on Kubernetes to refactor and replatform. Better align crucial applications to rapidly changing requirements.

Supporting icon Data security, compliance, and process automation

Use cloud native security principles to automate compliance tasks. Build automated systems that log every activity. Use an operational toolchain that can rapidly patch and update components as new bits become available. Embrace immutable infrastructure.

Supporting icon Modern software design

Embrace agile and lean approaches to digital transformation. Build new cloud native apps featuring an API-first design. Deliver features to users across many devices. Operate at start-up speeds, reducing time to market.

Supporting icon Microservices

Adopt a microservices architecture and boost velocity. Encourage rapid iteration and small changes to discrete components of a system. Deploy microservices via continuous delivery and give developers a frictionless path to production on any Kubernetes. Deploy small changes frequently and see big benefits over time. Run apps on a runtime that makes it easy to do the right thing and further your DevOps culture.

Supporting icon Scalability

Deploy on an application runtime proven to handle high volumes of API calls. Deliver superior uptime for enterprise apps and ensure a responsive end user experience during peak demand. Boost user satisfaction while reducing risk.
