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 Tanzu Service Mesh?

Tanzu Service Mesh is a tool built expressly to enable the meaningful business outcomes we just described (fast time to value, elasticity, fault tolerance, and so on) while operating in the context of a hybrid or multi-cloud environment. Here are some examples:

  • How do we deliver a faster time to value when we have to update 100 dependent services whenever a core service moves from one cloud to another?
  • Do we realize the full value of an elastic system if every cloud has a different process and toolset for deploying and scaling?
  • The same goes for detecting and remediating faults. Are we fully benefitting from a resilient system if we have to maintain different tools for monitoring, alerting, and remediating across clouds?
  • Let’s say that you were to invest the time and effort to centralize tooling and monitoring to work across multiple clouds. How do you keep your tech up to date as languages, frameworks, and technologies continue their...
