DevSecOps in Practice with VMware Tanzu

By: Parth Pandit, Robert Hardt

Overview of this book

As Kubernetes (or K8s) becomes more prolific, managing large clusters at scale in a multi-cloud environment becomes more challenging – especially from a developer productivity and operational efficiency point of view. DevSecOps in Practice with VMware Tanzu addresses these challenges by automating the delivery of containerized workloads and controlling multi-cloud Kubernetes operations using Tanzu tools. This comprehensive guide begins with an overview of the VMWare Tanzu platform and discusses its tools for building useful and secure applications using the App Accelerator, Build Service, Catalog service, and API portal. Next, you’ll delve into running those applications efficiently at scale with Tanzu Kubernetes Grid and Tanzu Application Platform. As you advance, you’ll find out how to manage these applications, and control, observe, and connect them using Tanzu Mission Control, Tanzu Observability, and Tanzu Service Mesh. Finally, you’ll explore the architecture, capabilities, features, installation, configuration, implementation, and benefits of these services with the help of examples. By the end of this VMware book, you’ll have gained a thorough understanding of the VMWare Tanzu platform and be able to efficiently articulate and solve real-world business problems.

Enhancing Developer Productivity with Tanzu Application Platform

In the world of enterprise software, we have the concept of Big A applications and Little A applications. Big A might be a giant corporate billing system with hundreds of components, whereas a Little A application might be a single job that pulls records from a mainframe and writes them to MongoDB.

Similarly, there are Big P and Little P problems that need to be solved when delivering software in the enterprise. An example of a Little P problem I faced today was moving some container images from the VMware corporate container registry to a customer’s private registry so they could use them internally without having to allow egress to the internet. On the other hand, some Big P problems you might face in the enterprise space might be the following:

  • Making a company’s developers measurably more productive
  • Getting applications into production quickly, safely, and consistently – minimizing...
