Kubernetes has become the de facto standard for container orchestration. Platform engineering teams have options when using that technology, such as a prescriptive approach with platform as a service or a more flexible approach for customizing their Kubernetes platform. VMware Tanzu supports multiple containerization journeys with many ways of running applications. Platform teams can choose between VMware Tanzu Application Service or VMware Tanzu for Kubernetes Operations. This panel, includes Tanzu Vanguards, who will share important considerations when running the platform, including security, survivability, scale, cloud native secrets, networking do's and don'ts, ChatOps, and more. Hear about lessons learned and best practices for dealing with chatty neighbors and microservices, using isolation segments for specific use cases, and application and platform monitoring.
