Supported Operating Systems for TKG Deployment

In this post, I will talk about supported operating systems for deploying TKG Management and Workload Clusters. This is not applicable if you are working on vSphere with Tanzu.

In the following table, you can see the different OS supported under different infra/cloud providers.

Distributed with TKG

Distributed with TKG is what VMware provide us and you might have been using those images. In my case, I am using Ubuntu with vSphere most of the time. There is no specific reason and you can use Photon too.

Custom Image

This is where we are interested in this article. So, Custom images are the one which we can create for deploying TKG clusters but Custom image should be based on one of the supported OS listed in table above.

In my upcoming blogs, i will talk about how to create a custom image.
