VMware Tanzu Kubernetes Grid 2.1

What is VMware Tanzu Kubernetes Grid ?
Enterprise Kubernetes runtimes enable the use of containers built on the Kubernetes platform across various cloud infrastructures. Although VMware's distributed container orchestration, Kubernetes, uses the same open-source tools as the rest of the Kubernetes community, it has been designed to make installation and regular use more straightforward.

It allows IT administrators and developers to interact with vSphere using Kubernetes-based solutions. This enables simple provisioning of Kubernetes clusters via the Kubernetes APIs embedded directly within vSphere.

In both public and private clouds, Tanzu helps users run and manage multiple Kubernetes clusters (K8S).VMware keeps strong ties with Kubernetes despite making it a first-class VMware product. VMware Tanzu Kubernetes Grid will be available as a service in the various public cloud infrastructures that customers currently use.

Tanzu Kubernetes Grid, which offered a new Cluster API feature called ClusterClass, as well as Carvel tools, which enabled unified, declarative APIs and improved application lifecycle management capabilities. 

This was accessible on the Supervisor in the 2.0 version enabling a native and strongly integrated VMware vSphere experience. With the current version, this platform will also be able to use VMs as the management cluster. Both will be recognizable, but they now allow a single, unified manner of creating clusters using a new API called ClusterClass.

For the majority of workloads, using the Supervisor Cluster is advised since it can fulfil operational ease of use requirements and has a closer interaction with vSphere capabilities. A different method for controlling clusters on hyperscale cloud-based deployments is the VM-based management cluster
