Warning: Tanzu Application Platform is currently in beta (intended for evaluation and test purposes only).
Tanzu Application Platform is a packaged set of components that helps developers and operators build, deploy, and manage apps on Kubernetes.
Simplify workflows in both the inner loop and outer loop of Kubernetes-based app development with Tanzu Application Platform.
Tanzu Application Platform provides a default set of components that automates pushing an app to staging and production on Kubernetes, solving pains for both inner and outer loops. In addition, operators can customize the platform by replacing Tanzu Application Platform components with other products.
Kubernetes deployment complexity is reduced for operators with better automation and standardization of the outer loop, giving developers more time to focus on code.
Tanzu Application Platform is available through pre-defined profiles or individual packages.
The following profiles are available in Tanzu Application Platform:
Dev: Contains packages that drive the Inner Loop personal developer experience of building and iterating on applications.
Full: This profile contains all of the Tanzu Application Platform packages.
To install the Tanzu Application Platform profiles, see Installing Tanzu Application Platform.
