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.

We covered a lot of ground in this chapter considering what TMC can do to minimize the effort of managing any distribution of upstream Kubernetes that could be running on different cloud environments. The high-level value proposition of this tool is to provide management control for multi-cloud, multi-cluster, and multi-team usage. First, we understood the different challenges of deployment approaches with a small number of large clusters or a large number of small clusters. Then, we saw use cases for TMC and the solutions it provides for complex problems when managing Kubernetes deployments. We discussed how challenging it can be to operate on different clusters deployed in different cloud environments and keep the operator and developer experience consistent across them. We saw how TMC makes this easy using cluster groups and Workspaces, a group of Kubernetes namespaces across different clusters.

Then, we learned how to get started with TMC, covering the way to integrate...
