VMware Tanzu Application Service is an app development and deployment platform for public and private clouds. Tanzu Application Service is the VMware commercial implementation of the open source Cloud Foundry project.

VMware Tanzu Application Service

Cloud platforms let anyone deploy network apps or services and make them available to the world in a few minutes. When an app becomes popular, the cloud scales it to handle more traffic, replacing build-out and migration efforts that once took months with a few keystrokes. Cloud platforms enable you to focus exclusively on your apps and data without worrying about underlying infrastructure.

As an industry-standard cloud platform, Tanzu Application Service offers open source code, deployment automation, flexible infrastructure, commercial options, and community support.
