Pros

"Tanzu Mission Control has quite a set of rich features when compared to OpenShift.""The multi-tenancy with the VCD is great.""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.""VMware Tanzu Mission Control has many valuable features, such as ease of use and customization."

Cons
"Could be more intuitive.""We're looking for something that is even easier to use. It's a bit complicated.""The solution could improve by adding more features in the dashboard, such as monitoring, scanning, and security. This would be a great benefit."

"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.""We want to see a new feature that helps build more security architecture like Zero Trust Security or shifting left in Kubernetes.""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.""The solution could improve by having better integration with other solutions such as HPE."
