At the beginning of this chapter, we discussed some of the reasons why TKG could be a good choice for being a Kubernetes-based container platform. As we saw during the hands-on activities, TKG makes Kubernetes platform deployment and management very easy and operationally efficient by providing a uniform interface – the Tanzu CLI. All the Tanzu CLI-based operations we performed in this chapter were infrastructure-agnostic, providing the required muti-cloud ease of operations.
