Users with vCD 10.3.1 and CSE 3.1.1 can deploy fully supported and secure VMware Tanzu Kubernetes Grid Clusters by importing the TKG OVA on the vCD UI.
CSE 3.1.1 automatically creates vCD AVI based load balancer to secure Layer 4 traffic.
CSE also has a major enhancement on the storage front, K8s services can be created using the Container Storage Interface (CSI) driver to dynamically allocate vCD named independent disk-based Persistent Volumes (PVs) that enforces the tenant’s storage limits.
