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.

What is next for Tanzu?

VMware created a new modern applications business unit in 2020 by clubbing the relevant products built internally and acquired from Pivotal, Bitnami, Heptio, and Wavefront. It is a well-thought-out portfolio covering most of the major areas of building, running, and managing modern apps in multi-cloud environments. All the products in this portfolio have good long roadmaps to add more capabilities and support for different cloud infrastructure providers. However, with the recent announcement of Broadcom Inc acquiring VMware, there are changes expected in how these products are grouped, along with other VMware and Broadcom’s existing products. More details will unfold in the future post-acquisition. In any case, we believe that the value these products bring to the table would not change even if their packaging or names changed in the future, so we also hope that the knowledge gained in this book will help its readers nevertheless.
