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.

Different ways to create a Kubernetes cluster

Most of the chapters in the book list having a Kubernetes cluster as one of the prerequisites to follow the instructions in each chapter. While we have learned about three different approaches to creating Tanzu clusters in this book as referenced in the following points, there are also various other ways to get your Kubernetes cluster up and running with minimal effort. This section lists some of the many ways to create a Kubernetes cluster.

Creating Tanzu Kubernetes Grid clusters

The following list include ways to create Tanzu Kubernetes Grid clusters:

  • Tanzu Kubernetes Grid: In Chapter 7, Orchestrating Containers across Clouds with Tanzu Kubernetes Grid, we described how you can use Tanzu Kubernetes Grid to create a managed enterprise-ready Kubernetes cluster.
  • Tanzu Mission Control: Tanzu Mission Control makes it very simple and straightforward to create a Kubernetes cluster. We covered it in detail in Chapter 9, Managing...
