Setting up an Anthos user cluster on VMware
Now let’s take a look at an example of how to set up an Anthos user cluster on VMware (available in 1.11.1 release and later) with just a few steps.
First, select the “Create a cluster” option in the Anthos Clusters dashboard, and then choose the “VMware vSphere” environment type.

Performing Day 2 operations
Once you’ve created the user cluster, you can perform cluster Day 2 operations on it from the console. For example, you can easily upgrade the cluster version or update the node size of the user cluster control plane and memory.

Managing Anthos clusters on AWS and Azure
For Anthos multicloud deployment options, we began supporting cluster lifecycle management via the gcloud CLI and Terraform late last year, and with this release, it’s now easy for you to update, upgrade and delete user clusters in AWS and Azure via the console (public Preview as of the 1.13 release). Figure 5 illustrates how you can update multiple cluster fields at once in the console.
