Free Tanzu Community Edition
VMware lunched its free, new VMware Tanzu Community Edition that allows customers to run and manage Kubernetes-based containerized applications at no cost in multi-cloud environments.
“We want to make sure that customers can get the power of Tanzu easy. Because in the world of DevOps, customers like trying things out before they engage with the partners for rolling them out in the most complete fashion,” said VMware’s President.
VMware’s new Tanzu Community Edition is a free, easy to manage Kubernetes platform for learners and users. The open-source software distribution can be installed and configured in minutes on a local workstation or cloud of choice, and automates end-to-end application delivery with a complete platform for application developers, IT operators, and DevOps engineers.
Customers can quickly build a complete Kubernetes based platform customized to their needs, and run it in on a local workstation, in VMware vSphere, or in a public cloud with single node and multi-cluster configurations.
“Our services are already built on open source. So it’s open source distribution, but now is available for certain set of capabilities that customers can try out, and then start using and utilizing it,” said Dhawan.
