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.

Cloud-native development frameworks under the Tanzu umbrella

As mentioned in previous sections and chapters, the Tanzu portfolio didn’t materialize out of thin air. Rather, it is the thoughtful natural expression of many years of work and has helped some of the world’s largest and most notable companies cultivate their software competency. One outcome of that experience is learning which development frameworks maximize developer productivity while minimizing toil, tedium, and bad practice.

At this point, we’ve successfully deployed, updated, downloaded, and implemented a simple API based on an application accelerator. Our example used Spring Boot. How did we arrive at Spring Boot as the underlying application framework for our API?

The Spring Framework and Spring Boot

The framework of choice for many of the most successful Tanzu customers has been the Spring Framework. This is proven by the millions of applications started with Spring Initializr at https...
