Course Introduction

Goals of this course

The primary goal of this course is to provide you with a high-level understanding of the main products and components that make up VMware Tanzu for Kubernetes Operations, and how they fit together.

You are not expected to become an expert in any of these components by the end of the course. These products are all significantly complex in their own right. You should, however, have an appreciation of what each of them does and how they might be used.

It is also a goal of this course that you should be able apply what you have learned to understanding the TKO Reference Architecture. That will, however, also require some understanding of the cloud platforms onto which TKO will be deployed, and those components of the overall solution are beyond the scope of this course.
