VMware Tanzu Application Service is an app development and deployment platform for public and private clouds.

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.

Not all cloud platforms are created equal. Some have limited language and framework support, lack key app services, or restrict deployment to a single cloud.

As an industry-standard cloud platform, Tanzu Application Service for VMs offers the following:

Open source code
The platform’s openness and extensibility prevent its users from being locked into a single framework, set of app services, or cloud. For more information, see the Cloud Foundry project on GitHub.
Deployment automation
Developers can deploy their apps to Tanzu Application Service for VMs using their existing tools and with zero modification to their code.
Flexible infrastructure
You can deploy Tanzu Application Service for VMs to run your apps on your own computing infrastructure, or deploy on an IaaS like vSphere, AWS, Azure, GCP, or OpenStack.
Commercial options
