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 the ongoing quest to maximize our productivity as developers or to maximize our teams’ productivity as tech leaders or architects, we need to get day 0 exactly right. Bad decisions or development mistakes made on day 0 will continue to bear their bitter, rotten fruit year after year.

The best way to avoid these costly day-0 mistakes is to begin from a starting point that we know has been successful in the past and use it as a jumping-off point for future development. Application Accelerator for VMware Tanzu, Spring Boot, and the Steeltoe framework provide a simple, repeatable baseline for codifying these starting points and making teams successful from the outset.

Furthermore, production-grade, enterprise-ready development frameworks don’t appear overnight. Frameworks such as Spring and .NET + Steeltoe are battle-hardened based on decades of lessons learned. The best app accelerators use the best underlying frameworks and they’re all part of the...
