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.

Realizing Full-Stack Visibility with VMware Aria Operations for Applications

In the last chapter, we learned how we can use Tanzu Mission Control to manage hundreds of Kubernetes clusters for their lifecycle management, policy control, and data protection. Tanzu Mission Control is a single point of control for all these concerns for Kubernetes. In this chapter, we will talk about a central point of visibility for your cloud-native apps running in containers, along with all other supporting layers and systems around them. Knowing the vital health status of your systems is a very old and essential concept in the world of information technology that is known as monitoring. It is also known as telemetry. The tools we used for years to monitor traditional monolithic applications would not yield the required results when it comes to monitoring microservices running on different clusters, platforms, and clouds. With microservices, the world is very distributed. Typically, microservices run...
