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.

Developing Cloud-Native Applications

A common problem across large enterprises is technology sprawl. When starting a new development endeavor, considerable day-0 cycles are wasted choosing the right technology and bad decisions can lead to ongoing operational headaches for many years.

This chapter will first focus on Application Accelerator for VMware Tanzu, or App Accelerator for short, a tool that addresses the day-0 problem of standing up a new project. It allows developers to pull down preconfigured application templates that already pass muster with enterprise architecture, have all the corporate security opinions and safeguards built in, include all the corporate standard libraries, use a corporate-standard format and layout, and allow for the configuration of common properties (Git repos, databases, API schemas, etc.)

Then, we’ll touch on a couple of development frameworks that currently make up a significant portion of software running in the enterprise: Spring...
