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.

Features, tools, benefits, and applications of VMware Tanzu

It is a combination of open source, proprietary, and Software as a Service (SaaS) offerings that work together to enable the outcomes that are important to software teams. These tools are tightly integrated and give developers a single toolset geared toward delivering important outcomes and running Kubernetes at scale. These tools and applications fall into three broad groups.

Build and develop

Tools that enable developers to efficiently and reliably develop and build software go in this group. This includes Application Accelerator for VMware Tanzu, VMware Tanzu Build Service, VMware Application Catalog, and API portal for VMware Tanzu.


This group contains the tools and applications to efficiently deliver and run applications on an ongoing basis. It includes Harbor, Tanzu Kubernetes Grid, and Tanzu Application Platform.


The final group contains tools for the management of applications and the platform itself. It includes Tanzu Mission Control, VMware Aria operations for Applications, and Tanzu Service Mesh.
