TMC is a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) offering under VMware Cloud Services. Because of that, there is no installation and setup required to start using TMC, which is a big relief that SaaS products provide. In TMC, we can have two types of clusters, as described in the following points:
- Clusters that are under a Kubernetes platform management control plane that is registered on TMC – Presently, TMC only supports TKG clusters under this category. Once a TKG management cluster (a TKG platform control plane) running on vSphere, AWS, or Azure is registered in TMC, we can use the TMC interface to perform all lifecycle operations for all the clusters created under that management cluster.
- Clusters that are attached to TMC – These can be any conformant Kubernetes clusters that are created externally. We can attach these clusters to TMC for several management activities discussed previously in this chapter, except for full lifecycle operations...
