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.

In this chapter, we gave a brief history of enterprise software and how its evolution set the stage for VMware Tanzu. Then, we gave a high-level overview of the Tanzu product itself. And finally, we covered some technical requirements to set you up for success in the hands-on exercises.

With all that in place, you’re free to jump to any chapter that piques your interest; they’re all self-contained and can be read on their own. Or, if you’re going in order, we’ll start at the beginning of the software development process. Application Accelerator for VMware Tanzu is a tool for bootstrapping a new application with all of the enterprise standards and approved libraries built in, giving you a more uniform portfolio of apps and preventing software teams from repeating past mistakes. Regardless of your approach to the book, we hope you enjoy the material, and we wish you great success putting it into practice.
