VMware Tanzu Editions

VMware Tanzu offers three editions that support your modernization journey, from simplifying Kubernetes adoption to running modern applications at scale.

VMware Tanzu Advanced Edition

Build and deliver compliant containers—continuously

VMware Tanzu Advanced simplifies and secures the container lifecycle to speed the delivery of modern apps at scale. With its modular, full-stack capabilities, you can embrace DevSecOps and stand up a platform for modern apps that works for your organization. Automatically build a stream of compliant containers. Secure your software supply chain end to end. And operationalize containers and clusters across clouds.

Read the solution brief

Let developers focus on code, not infrastructure

Plug into a secure, automated software supply chain to get to production quickly.

Secure the container lifecycle

Establish end-to-end security from code provenance to apps running safely in production.

Simplify and scale operations atop Kubernetes

Manage policy, networking, and health of containers and clusters across clouds.

Tanzu Advanced Modular Capabilities

Value for Developers

Developer frameworks

Drive cloud native development with the popular Spring Runtime, which includes a polyglot API gateway for routing traffic, and a microservice-based streaming and batch data processing toolkit for Kubernetes.

Curated app catalog

Access a curated, validated, continuously updated catalog of open source, production-ready containers. Comes with full source transparency and a hardened VMware base OS image.

Container registry

Trust your images in the software supply chain. Consistently and securely manage artifacts across clouds with policies, role-based access control, and vulnerability scanning.


Tap into an on-demand, relational database for modern apps. Developers can spawn dedicated instances of SQL for new and replatformed apps without operator intervention. The service works the same in any cloud.

Container build service

Build and maintain production-ready containers automatically—easing source-to-container workflows across any development framework. Resolve many vulnerabilities without a rebuild, and keep containers up to date with documented provenance.

Value for Operators

Policy and governance

Apply consistent operation and security for Kubernetes infrastructure and modern applications across multiple teams and clouds. Manage the lifecycle of fleets of clusters and continuously validate cluster compliance.

Service mesh

Deliver application continuity and security across clusters and clouds. Meet service-level objectives with automated failovers and scaling. Secure data with granular access policies and traffic encryption. Manage the service mesh lifecycle alongside your clusters.

Container networking

Implement network connectivity and security for Kubernetes pods across clouds, even for the most demanding workloads. Enhance container security with traffic encryption between pods and fine-grained policy controls over pod traffic.

Platform observability

Use advanced analytics to get visibility into the health and performance of workloads and clusters across clouds. Proactively observe and manage your Kubernetes estate.

Kubernetes ingress services

Enable application availability, security, and responsiveness across on-premises and any cloud. Access consolidated L4-L7 services—including global load balancing, intelligent web application firewall (iWAF), and container ingress—to simplify cluster operation.

Multi-cloud Kubernetes runtime

Deploy an enterprise-ready Kubernetes runtime to power the delivery of modern apps across on-premises, public clouds, and edge. Includes logging, registry, networking, storage, OS, and Cluster API-driven lifecycle management.
