September 27, 2021 Katrina Desrosiers

What developer experience runs more than 1 million containers, supports enterprises as they deliver microservices across clouds, and provides impactful outcomes for many organizations? Only VMware Tanzu Application Service, of course.

Tanzu Application Service is stronger than ever, continuing to evolve with the release of new features that meet our customers’ needs. This product has been center stage at many conferences already, including recently at SpringOne 2021, and Tanzu Application Service will be present throughout VMworld, coming up in October, as well. 

Catch some of the amazing Tanzu Application Service customer stories and product deployment discussions by adding the following sessions to your calendar.
