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.

Features and capabilities of Tanzu Service Mesh

Here are eight concrete features that Tanzu Service Mesh provides. These features enable the specific capabilities necessary to accomplish what we described in the previous section: how we deliver tangible outcomes in a multi or hybrid cloud environment:

  • Out-of-the-box enablement of hybrid and multi-cloud architectures: With a few clicks in the UI or API calls, you can onboard multiple different clouds and architectures (Kubernetes, legacy, serverless) into a single virtual space where you can quickly and easily stand up any of the various industry standard multi-cloud or hybrid cloud architectures.
  • Effortlessly move apps between clouds: You can deploy your app in a different VPC, a different platform (VMs versus Kubernetes), or even an entirely different cloud provider without affecting dependent apps and services.
  • Automatic high availability: You can deploy the same service to multiple clouds and the service mesh will...
