Kubernetes is an open-source container orchestration platform that enables the operation of an elastic web server framework for cloud applications. Kubernetes can support data center outsourcing to public cloud service providers or can be used for web hosting at scale.

VMware Tanzu Kubernetes Grid, or TKG, is a Kubernetes-based container solution that consists of advanced networking capabilities, a private container registry, and life-cycle management. TKG simplifies the deployment and operation of Kubernetes clusters, so you can run and manage containers at scale on private and public clouds.

This document outlines all the Kubernetes offerings within the VMware Tanzu family that can be discovered and monitored by central IT teams. It also includes instructions on how IT teams can use this integration for supported versions of Kubernetes clusters deployed using third party provisioning systems such as RedHat OpenShift, Rancher Labs, and others.
