It also includes VMware services on public clouds VMware Cloud on AWS (VMC) and Azure VMware Solution (AVS). Container provisioning and lifecycle management are provided by VMware Tanzu Kubernetes Grid (TKG). Underlying the software components of VMware Cloud Foundation in the on-premises core data center are 3rd Generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable processors, Intel® Optane persistent memory (PMem), Intel Optane SSDs, Intel® SSD D7 and D5 Series, and Intel® Ethernet products.
