vSphere with Kubernetes Configuration and Management provides information about configuring and managing vSphere with Kubernetes by using the vSphere Client. It also provides information about using kubectl to connect to namespaces running on vSphere with Kubernetes and run Kubernetes workloads on designated namespaces.

vSphere with Kubernetes Configuration and Management provides an overview of the platform architecture as well as considerations and best practices for setting up storage, compute, and networking that meet the specific requirements of vSphere with Kubernetes. It provides instructions for enabling vSphere with Kubernetes on existing vSphere clusters, creating and managing namespaces, and monitoring Kubernetes clusters that are created by using the VMware Tanzu™ Kubernetes Grid™ Service.

This information also provides guidelines about establishing a session with the vSphere with Kubernetes Kubernetes control plane through kubectl, running a sample application, and creating Kubernetes clusters by using the VMware Tanzu™ Kubernetes Grid™ Service.

Intended Audience

vSphere with Kubernetes Configuration and Management is intended for vSphere administrators who want to enable vSphere with Kubernetes in vSphere, configure and provide namespaces to DevOps teams, as well as manage and monitor Kubernetes workloads in vSphere. vSphere administrators who want to use vSphere with Kubernetes should have basic knowledge about the containers and Kubernetes technologies.

This information is also intended for DevOps engineers who want to establish a session with the vSphere with Kubernetes control plane, run Kubernetes workloads, and deploy Kubernetes clusters by using the VMware Tanzu™ Kubernetes Grid™ Service.
