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.

Before we jump into the actual product installation, let’s take a moment to think about the life of an enterprise application developer. Let’s assume Cody is a developer in our organization.

Today, Cody has been tasked with kicking off a new service that is expected to generate significant revenue for the company. If we were to ask him to list a few of the things that could hamper his ability to deliver that service, we might get a list such as this:

  • Finding the right application framework for the task at hand
  • Importing the necessary libraries into that framework
  • Importing all the corporate-mandated libraries
  • Resolving any version incompatibilities introduced in the previous two points
  • Attesting that all of the corporate security standards are being adhered to in this project
  • Making all the imported libraries work together
  • Researching and importing all the corporate coding conventions,...
