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.

Managing Container Images with Harbor

In the previous chapters, we covered the tools in the Tanzu portfolio that help us build cloud-native applications. We started our first segment with an overview of the evolution of building, running, and managing modern cloud-native applications and their platforms. Then, we saw how we can start application development using templates, how to build secure container images, how to quickly provision backing services for the applications, and how to manage APIs using various Tanzu products. After learning about building cloud-native applications, in this chapter, we will take a deep dive into various aspects of running them.

As the title of this chapter indicates, we will learn how to manage our container images and securely make them accessible using Harbor to deploy our applications on Kubernetes. Harbor is an open source container registry project under the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) umbrella. Despite Harbor being a fully open...
