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.

How to get started with Tanzu Service Mesh

Tanzu Service Mesh consists of controllers that install into your Kubernetes clusters as well as a central SaaS global control plane. The SaaS control plane does a few things:

  • Manages installation of Tanzu Service Mesh components onto Kubernetes clusters
  • Automatically updates those components as necessary
  • Sends global configuration down to those controllers (for example, the location of services on other clusters)
  • Manages and deploys policies on the Kubernetes clusters
  • Gathers metrics to enable visualization and SLOs

To get started with Tanzu Service Mesh, let’s log into our VMware Cloud Services Console and select the Tanzu Service Mesh tile from the list of services.
