vSphere with Tanzu is the latest update to Kubernetes running natively on vSphere. The biggest change with vSphere with Tanzu is that introduces the ability to enable Kubernetes on vSphere clusters using a vSphere Distributed Switch. vSphere with Tanzu uses vSphere Distributed Switch Portgroups and a “bring your own” network strategy for load balancing Kubernetes workloads. The initial release supports HAProxy for load balancing via our new Load Balancer API. This quick start guide will help you create a working Kubernetes environment quickly.
