Tanzu Operations Manager (OpsMan)
Grafana VM fails with "unsafe legacy renegotiation disabled" after upgrading to Jammy Stemcells - The error is caused due to your LoadBalancer not allowing any renegotiation and OpenSSL v3 requiring secure renegotiation (Jammy Stemcells use OpenSSL 3.0.) 

VMware RabbitMQ for Tanzu Application Service 
Upgrade All Service Instances errand fails for RabbitMQ 2.2.7 - RabbitMQ 3.12.8 introduced a change to the id format used by the RabbitMQ shovel supervisor. As a result, when the first node of the cluster is upgraded, it fails due to the new code hitting the old ID format stored in mnesia.

Dell Technologies - Tanzu GreenPlum 
Modernizing enterprise data analytics with Tanzu Greenplum
Dell Technologies provides devices to consumers and businesses, as well as storage, networking and security, virtualization, analytics and cloud computing systems to companies. 

With more than 420 petabytes of data across the organization, the company needed to find a way to make it actionable—both to transform life for employees and pioneer new data services for customers. Dell adopted Tanzu Greenplum, using VMware vSphere to virtualize and make it available on a Dell private cloud via self-service.

“Combining Tanzu Greenplum with PowerFlex made extraordinary things happen. Together, they provide unprecedented scalability, resilience and empower the IT team with greater control—they can scale compute and storage independently, for example, which promotes continuous optimization as the volume of data handled by Greenplum grows,” - Shashikiran Chidambara, product manager for PowerFlex, Dell Technologies. - Success Story here
