VMware Tanzu Kubernetes Grid provides organizations with a consistent, upstream-compatible Kubernetes substrate that is ready for end-user workloads and ecosystem integrations. Tanzu Kubernetes Grid (TKG) is central to many of the offerings in the VMware Tanzu portfolio, and provides the Kubernetes runtime for VMware Tanzu for Kubernetes Operations.

Tanzu Kubernetes Grid allows you to make Kubernetes available to developers as a utility. Operators and developers can use this grid to create and manage clusters in the declarative manner that is familiar to Kubernetes users and keep them version-compatible with upstream Kubernetes.

The vRealize Operations Management Pack for Kubernetes can be used to discover clusters deployed by TKG. Monitoring via cAdvisor and Prometheus is supported with this integration.
