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.

The future of Kubernetes

While nobody can predict the future for sure, we can forecast a few things about Kubernetes based on the present technology adoption data and the pipeline work in progress in this ecosystem. As we learned in Chapter 7, Orchestrating Containers across Clouds with Tanzu Kubernetes Grid, in relation to Tanzu Kubernetes Grid, the adoption of Kubernetes has reached unprecedented heights in the last 2 years. It has become home to most newly developed and many legacy applications. It is the new middleware that abstracts the underlying infrastructure, providing true application portability that was not available before the emergence of the containerization of applications. Containerization changed the way we architect and think about software development. This containerization technology spanned various platforms in the past few years, including Docker Swarm, Mesosphere, AWS Elastic Container Service, Cloud Foundry, and Kubernetes. While all of them are mature and...
