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 beyond this book

The scope of this book was to cover those Tanzu products that play key roles in building, running, and managing modern containerized applications on top of Kubernetes platforms. However, the Tanzu ecosystem has a few more offerings that we have not covered so far, as listed in the following sub-sections.

Tanzu Labs

Tanzu Labs is a professional services wing under the Tanzu umbrella. It covers services that are outcome focused and consist of short-term engagements of typically 6 to 12 weeks based on the scope of work. These services include consultation from highly trained architects and engineers in the respective area of work. Each engagement typically involves a combination of two full-time engineers or architects and one product manager. These professionals work with the customer’s team members following the practice of extreme programming. This way, the customer has the required, trained members to take ownership of the application or platform...
