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 TMC?

With its increasing popularity, Kubernetes is the new infrastructure layer. Just as 10 years back, almost every software used to run on the virtual infrastructure, in the next few years, almost every new application will probably be deployed on Kubernetes by default. In fact, most of the vendor-provided solutions are now available to run on Kubernetes. As per a survey done by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) in December 2021, over 5.6 million developers said they used Kubernetes to deploy their applications, which is a 67% increase in just 1 year! Because of the array of business and technical benefits provided by Kubernetes, it is here to stay for a long time. Based on this CNCF survey, over 96% of organizations have embraced Kubernetes with a different level of maturity to run their cloud-native applications! And 73% of them have workloads running in production on Kubernetes already! As per a blog post by the CNCF in February 2022, the community is seeing its...
