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.

Technical requirements

API Portal for VMware Tanzu is a subcomponent of another product covered in this book, Tanzu Application Platform (TAP). To get started with API Portal for VMware Tanzu, we’ll first need to install a Kubernetes cluster and then install TAP on that cluster. You’re free to use whichever Kubernetes distribution you prefer. If you’d like some guidance around standing up a cluster, you can go to the appendix at the end of the book where we describe several options for getting Kubernetes up and running.

Once you have a running Kubernetes cluster, you’ll need to jump briefly to Chapter 8, Enhancing Developer Productivity with Tanzu Application Platform, and install Tanzu Application Platform. That chapter walks through a more complex end-to-end use case, while this chapter focuses solely on the API Portal component.

Next, you’ll need an account on a container registry that presents a TLS certificate trusted by your Kubernetes...
