Announcing the evolution of the Tanzu Application Catalog to the VMware Application Catalog


Today we are announcing the next step in the evolution of the VMware Tanzu Application Catalog. Since its initial availability in March 2020, Tanzu Application Catalog has achieved notable success with its unique DevSecOps approach, which meets the needs of developers, security administrators and IT operators. The Tanzu Application Catalog offers a library of prepackaged, validated, and production-ready open source container images that can be customized using base operating system images of the customer’s choice. On the one hand, this organized image catalog increases the agility of developers by allowing them to quickly discover, iterate and put into production applications with pre-packaged support services tested on multiple deployment platforms. . On the other hand, it also promotes operator confidence by enabling IT security and compliance levels to be observed with visibility into the source of code and CVE and antivirus analysis at the time of construction.

Evolution to the VMware Application Catalog

One of the most requested new features for this product over the past year has been support for virtual machine images. We’re excited to announce that support for OVA images on the Tanzu App Catalog will be coming soon! Support for virtual machines will expand the product charter from a container catalog only and help us meet customers wherever they are on their modernization journey. Thus, we are renaming the product to reflect its new, larger capacity and audience. From today, Tanzu Application Catalog will be officially renamed VMware Application Catalog.

Recently, additional features have also been added to the product, including a brand new self-integrating user interface for customers. Instead of a manual white-glove process, VMware Application Catalog users can now request the desired artifacts and provide their custom base operating system image and private registry of their choice, all through a workflow easy-to-use self-integration with just a few clicks.

What it means for customers

Users of the VMware Application Catalog will see the new product name reflected in the user interface and documentation and will soon be able to request artifacts in the form of virtual machines, in addition to already supported container formats.
