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.

Why should I use Tanzu Application Platform?

As I mentioned in the chapter introduction, there are small problems that can be encountered when writing software, such as efficiently sorting a list in place or moving streaming data from a legacy database to the latest NoSQL offering, and there are big problems, such as the following:

  • Developer productivity: Enterprise software only exists because big companies hire software developers to write the software that they use to bring in revenue and differentiate the company from their competition. Companies with good platforms can focus their developers’ time and effort on meaningful tasks that directly affect the company’s bottom line. This makes the developers feel valued. Those without a good platform grow to view their developers as an expensive cost center, sparking a painful downward spiral into low morale and low productivity.
  • Getting software into production: If you haven’t written software for a large...
