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.

Why Tanzu Kubernetes Grid?

In a nutshell, TKG is an enterprise-supported flavor of the open source Kubernetes platform. Like many other distributions, TKG uses the upstream Kubernetes distributions without modifying the open source code base. However, there are a few good reasons why an enterprise would like to use TKG over the open source community – vanilla – distribution of Kubernetes. We’ll explore those reasons in this section.

Multi-cloud application deployments

As per a survey done by Gartner (, over 81% of respondents said that they have a multi-cloud deployment or strategy. Enterprises have multi-cloud strategies for reasons such as avoiding vendor lock-ins and using the best services offered by the respective cloud provider. Additionally, the enterprises have applications that may not be deployed on a public cloud platform and hence deployed on-premises. Kubernetes...
