Pros

More Nutanix Kubernetes Engine NKE Pros →

"The multi-tenancy with the VCD is great.""Tanzu Mission Control has quite a set of rich features when compared to OpenShift.""A feature we find valuable is that other products can also be integrated with Mission Control. This means that we can see the status of specific clusters, as well as view the monitoring application logs all from one point.""The most important feature of Tanzu Mission Control is its integration with the other products, especially with ESX and vSAN. This is a strong part of Tanzu Mission Control. In other solutions, such as OpenShift or Kubernetes, you can find similar features, but they don't have similar integration. With Tanzu Mission Control, you get a total solution with only one provider. You have the integration with the infrastructure, virtualization of networking, and virtualization of storage. You have a natural integration, and you don't have the problem of integrating it with different products or providers. Sometimes, different companies have good integration, but it is not always guaranteed. For example, many years ago, Cisco and VMware were good partners in networking, but when VMware started to sell ESX, the relationship was broken. This is the problem that you can face when you are using solutions from two different companies.""I have multiple Kubernetes environments within my environment. TMC gives me a single pane view, which is good for managing everything.""VMware Tanzu Mission Control has many valuable features, such as ease of use and customization."

Cons
"GUI lacks sufficient information to help with understanding the installation and process."

More Nutanix Kubernetes Engine NKE Cons →

"The solution could improve by having better integration with other solutions such as HPE.""This product doesn't have a GUI. In order to use it properly, I need to connect it to a new GUI or build a GUI to manage it — it's pretty difficult.""It is not easy to build a solution with containers. It has a graphical user interface, but you need to have a lot of knowledge of Linux and how to work in the command mode. Its support can also be improved. Currently, its biggest disadvantage is that it is a new product, and the clients prefer to go for a solution that has been in the market for a long time. There are not that many people who know this product.""Tanzu provides better manageability as compared to OCP, but when it comes to tagging it with other products, it's a bit rigid. If I have to bring in any new product or something out of the box from a different vendor, working with Tanzu becomes a little difficult. For example, if I want to use the F5 services, I have to add one more layer of Avi, but I don't want to do that. If I have a list of the products that I want to use, such as for firewall services, with Tanzu, I will have to go through another layer, which creates complexity.""We want to see a new feature that helps build more security architecture like Zero Trust Security or shifting left in Kubernetes.""The disaster recovery feature could be improved to provide better tracking of issues. I would also like to see the introduction of a dashboard view, for even further integration of all the areas that Mission Control looks at."

  • "VMware Tanzu Mission Control is cheaper than Red Hat OpenShift."
  • "Its pricing is very competitive. We get around 70% or 75%, sometimes even 80%, discount on the product. I would rate it a four out of five in terms of pricing."

    Overview
    Nutanix Kubernetes Engine (NKE) is an enterprise Kubernetes management solution that simplifies provisioning, operations, and lifecycle management of Kubernetes.

    What is VMware Tanzu Mission Control?

    VMware Tanzu Mission Control is a platform that enables you to manage modern applications by providing a single control point for IT teams to more easily handle Kubernetes and run modern containerized applications across multiple clusters and clouds. Because the solution is an API-driven service, it allows you to manage all of your clusters via its API, the web-based console, or the CLI. The VMware Tanzu Mission Control console gives you the ability to view Kubernetes resources in two ways - either by cluster groups to provide an infrastructure view, or by workspaces to provide an application view.

    VMware Tanzu Mission Control Provides:

    • Control for operators
    • Consistency for DevOps
    • Flexibility for developers

    VMware Tanzu Mission Control Features

    VMware Tanzu Mission Control has several valuable features, including:

    • Cluster lifecycle management: VMware Tanzu Mission Control gives you the flexibility needed to create or delete clusters, or upgrade or resize them by simply connecting to your own cloud provider account.

    • Cluster diagnostics and observability: With a comprehensive console, VMware Tanzu Mission Control makes it possible for you to monitor your clusters’ health and resource usage. The console allows you to see cluster details, such as nodes, workloads, and namespaces.

    • Cluster inspections: You can easily ensure consistency of clusters by running preconfigured inspections.

    • Data protection: With VMware Tanzu Mission Control, data resources in your clusters can be backed up and restored to ensure data protection.

    • Access control: VMware Tanzu Mission Control provides federated identity management and allows you to apply role-based access control on a granular level to meet your security requirements.

    • Policy management: You can create customized policies to manage your clusters, workloads, and namespaces, alleviating the need to manage your Kubernetes resources and its apps manually.
