As a vSphere Administrator, you enable a vSphere cluster for Workload Management by creating a Supervisor Cluster. You can select between creating the Supervisor Cluster with the vSphere networking stack or with NSX-T Data Center as the networking solution. A cluster configured with NSX-T Data center supports running a vSphere Pod and a Tanzu Kubernetes cluster created through the VMware Tanzu™ Kubernetes Grid™ Service. A Supervisor Cluster that is configured with the vSphere networking stack only supports Tanzu Kubernetes clusters.

After you enable the Supervisor Cluster, you can use the vSphere Client to manage and monitor the cluster.
