Available Profiles in Tanzu Application Platform (TAP)

VMware recently announced the v0.3 beta release of TAP and introduced the new concept of profile. Profile is basically a collection of different packages those are installed in during TAP installation.

In the TAP v0.3 beta release, there are two types of profile:

  • Full (full)
  • Developer Light (dev-light)

As the name suggests, “Full” profile is basically the one having all the packages installed during TAP installation, whereas, Developer profile will have limited number of packages installed.

See the different packages available in both profile:
