VMware Tanzu Build Service automates container creation, management, and governance at enterprise scale.

VMware Tanzu Build Service

What Is Tanzu Build Service?

You have plenty of options for building containers from source code. Yet many require significant effort and ongoing maintenance to use them properly. And it can be hard to enforce security and operational rigor at scale. Tanzu Build Service offers the convenience of these workflows with more automation and the governance capabilities enterprises need.

Build, maintain, and update portable OCI images

Consistently create production-ready container images that run on Kubernetes and across clouds. Automate source-to-container workflows across all your development frameworks.

Boost security and reduce risk from CVE

Tanzu Build Service uses the magic of Cloud Native Buildpacks to rebase app images when specialized contractual base images are updated in a registry. This means you can resolve certain common vulnerabilities and exposures (CVE) without a rebuild.

Follow a Kubernetes-native model

Tanzu Build Service follows a Kubernetes-native declarative model and executes builds automatically against user-defined configuration. It includes kpack, a set of open source resource controllers for Kubernetes maintained by VMware Tanzu.
