Innovate on Your Own Terms

Your business today relies on continuously delivering and optimizing modern software on any cloud and at the edge. This includes building new cloud native applications and modernizing existing applications to operate effectively in cloud environments. With the VMware Tanzu modular cloud native application platform, you have the power to innovate and grow your business on your terms.

Streamline Developer Experience

Your business is at its best when you have happy developers creating value for your customers. Developers should be able to focus on getting their code working in production, not spending time on packaging, security or infrastructure—or trying to figure out Kubernetes.

VMware Tanzu offers a superior developer experience for building and deploying software quickly and securely on any compliant public cloud or on-premises Kubernetes cluster.

Modernize Your Application Portfolio

Your existing applications can be difficult to update, integrate, and scale. This can keep you from creating new, innovative digital experiences for your customers. It also adds risk over time by harboring potential security vulnerabilities.

VMware Tanzu Labs can help you create and execute your application modernization strategy and unlock the value of your existing portfolio of applications.

Centrally Manage Your Kubernetes Estate

Your enterprise is likely living in today’s multi-cloud reality, and so is your Kubernetes infrastructure. Managing these separate environments can be a heavy lift. As more development teams consume the platform, it becomes unscalable.

VMware Tanzu provides capabilities that empower your platform operations teams to provision, manage, connect, secure and observe a multi-cloud Kubernetes platform.

Enable a Modern DevSecOps Practice

DevSecOps is an approach to security that simplifies and automates container operations across clouds, integrates security throughout the container lifecycle, and enables teams to deliver software to customers quickly. 

VMware Tanzu helps you build and deploy containerized workloads to any cloud continuously and securely by automating security and compliance tasks through pre-approved paths to production.
