You need to sign up for Tanzu Service Mesh, a software as a service (SaaS) offering from VMware, to use it.
You sign up for Tanzu Service Mesh through VMware Cloud Services, which is a web-based platform that you use to sign up for and manage your services on VMware Cloud Services.
During the sign-up, you need to add Tanzu Service Mesh to an existing organization in VMware Cloud Services or create an organization and add Tanzu Service Mesh to it. VMware Cloud uses organizations to provide controlled access to one or more services. The default currency of the organization you select for Tanzu Service Mesh will be used to pay for it.
You must belong to an organization before you can access Tanzu Service Mesh. If you are an organization owner, you have access to all the resources of the organization. You can add cloud services to your organization and then invite users. After you add Tanzu Service Mesh to your organization, you can add users to the organization to give them access to Tanzu Service Mesh. For more information about organizations and adding users to an organization, see the VMware Cloud Services documentation.
You need a VMware account to sign up for Tanzu Service Mesh. If you don't have a VMware account, you can create one when you sign up.
