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.

Pros and cons of a single-vendor solution

Using an end-to-end solution such as Tanzu or a single public cloud has many advantages but also some disadvantages. An enterprise should consider these points carefully and create a technology platform adoption plan accordingly. The following points outline the pros and cons of using a single-vendor solution containing multiple products.


  • There is a big shift in the field of software to use open source technologies to avoid vendor lock-ins and gain the benefits of community collaboration. However, picking the right open source technology that is mature and supported is often a challenging and time-consuming process. That’s where a comprehensive technology platform such as Tanzu could be a big help, as it uses many cherry-picked, open source tools under the hood. This will save considerable effort for an enterprise, along with giving it the confidence to use open source technologies heavily.
