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.

Tanzu adoption options

At the time of writing, most of the products discussed in this book are standalone and can be consumed with à la carte pricing. However, VMware has bundled them together to provide a simplified and more cost-effective adoption experience. The following is the list of the bundles presently available that enterprises may choose from.

Tanzu Standard

This is the smallest commercially available Tanzu bundle to provide the minimal tools to deploy a multi-cloud Kubernetes platform. It mainly includes Tanzu Kubernetes Grid with essential capabilities of Tanzu Mission Control. Tanzu Standard also includes another flavor of Kubernetes offering that is specific to vSphere. Here, Kubernetes is integrated inside vSphere to make its adoption simpler for the virtual infrastructure admins to get a good understanding of the vSphere ecosystem.

Tanzu Application Platform (TAP)
