    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

    • 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.

    Reviews from Real Users

    Below are some reviews and helpful feedback written by VMware Tanzu Mission Control

    users who are currently using the solution.

    PeerSpot user Abbasi P., who is a Vice President Derivatives Ops IT at a financial services firm, mentions what he finds to be most useful about the product, stating, “Tanzu Mission Control has quite a set of rich features when compared to OpenShift. I like the dashboard for monitoring the CI/CD pipeline, the entire process of releasing it into the cloud, and deploying it to the cloud.

    Aurelio R., who is an IT Specialist at a tech services company, explains why he thinks the solution is valuable. “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."

    A Cloud Architect at a computer software company says, “The multi-tenancy with the VCD is great.

    Weave Cloud is a software-as-a-service that simplifies deployment, monitoring and management for containers and microservices. It extends and complements popular orchestrators, and enables developers and DevOps to realize faster deployments, insightful monitoring, visualization and networking.
