We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The solution is easy to use."
"The most important feature of Tanzu Mission Control is its integration with the other products, especially with ESX and vSAN. This is a strong part of Tanzu Mission Control. In other solutions, such as OpenShift or Kubernetes, you can find similar features, but they don't have similar integration. With Tanzu Mission Control, you get a total solution with only one provider. You have the integration with the infrastructure, virtualization of networking, and virtualization of storage. You have a natural integration, and you don't have the problem of integrating it with different products or providers. Sometimes, different companies have good integration, but it is not always guaranteed. For example, many years ago, Cisco and VMware were good partners in networking, but when VMware started to sell ESX, the relationship was broken. This is the problem that you can face when you are using solutions from two different companies."
"Tanzu Mission Control has quite a set of rich features when compared to OpenShift."
"The multi-tenancy with the VCD is great."
"They need to work on the Amazon plugins on the Kubernetes cluster."
"It is not easy to build a solution with containers. It has a graphical user interface, but you need to have a lot of knowledge of Linux and how to work in the command mode. Its support can also be improved. Currently, its biggest disadvantage is that it is a new product, and the clients prefer to go for a solution that has been in the market for a long time. There are not that many people who know this product."
"We want to see a new feature that helps build more security architecture like Zero Trust Security or shifting left in Kubernetes."
"This product doesn't have a GUI. In order to use it properly, I need to connect it to a new GUI or build a GUI to manage it — it's pretty difficult."
"VMware Tanzu Mission Control is cheaper than Red Hat OpenShift."
Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS) is a fully managed Kubernetes service. Customers such as Intel, Snap, Intuit, GoDaddy, and Autodesk trust EKS to run their most sensitive and mission critical applications because of its security, reliability, and scalability.
EKS is the best place to run Kubernetes for several reasons. First, you can choose to run your EKS clusters using AWS Fargate, which is serverless compute for containers. Fargate removes the need to provision and manage servers, lets you specify and pay for resources per application, and improves security through application isolation by design. Second, EKS is deeply integrated with services such as Amazon CloudWatch, Auto Scaling Groups, AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM), and Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC), providing you a seamless experience to monitor, scale, and load-balance your applications. Third, EKS integrates with AWS App Mesh and provides a Kubernetes native experience to consume service mesh features and bring rich observability, traffic controls and security features to applications. Additionally, EKS provides a scalable and highly-available control plane that runs across multiple availability zones to eliminate a single point of failure.
EKS runs upstream Kubernetes and is certified Kubernetes conformant so you can leverage all benefits of open source tooling from the community. You can also easily migrate any standard Kubernetes application to EKS without needing to refactor your code.
Move Faster in Development
Give your developers self-service access to Kubernetes in the environment of their choice, with security and policy guardrails in place.
Manage Kubernetes at Scale
Bring global visibility, scalable operations, and consistent policy management to your modern apps by centralizing Kubernetes across teams and clouds.
Secure Your Footprint
Boost the security of your Kubernetes clusters and modern apps. Easily manage access, apply security policies, and inspect clusters for security and configuration risks.
Amazon EKS is ranked 6th in Container Management with 1 review while VMware Tanzu Mission Control is ranked 4th in Container Management with 3 reviews. Amazon EKS is rated 8.0, while VMware Tanzu Mission Control is rated 6.6. The top reviewer of Amazon EKS writes "Easy to use, with reasonable pricing and good stability in the latest versions". On the other hand, the top reviewer of VMware Tanzu Mission Control writes "A centrally managed security platform with a rich set of features, but it could be more secure". Amazon EKS is most compared with OpenShift Container Platform, VMware Tanzu Build Service, Rancher Labs, HashiCorp Nomad and Nutanix Karbon, whereas VMware Tanzu Mission Control is most compared with OpenShift Container Platform, Rancher Labs, Nutanix Karbon, Cisco Container Platform and Kubernetes.
