How to Automate Deployment Process for Jenkins?
Three things to be avoided for a 100% success in application delivery- Scripts, Scripts and Scripts
Developer and DevOps team invest their precious time in creating and maintaining custom scripts and implementing plugins to extend the CI pipelines in Jenkins for deployments. But the Jenkins pipeline must scale while deploying multiple applications or handling Kubernetes resources.
Use OpsMx ISD, an intelligent software delivery platform built on Spinnaker and Argo CD, to automatically release Kubernetes applications into the cloud.
No-code Hybrid-cloud Deployments
Hybrid-cloud requires scripts for cloud-native deployments, but ISD (using Argo and Spinnaker) can deploy applications on bare metal, container, VM, or server-less platforms through our integration with all clouds (OpenStack, OpenShift, Kubernetes, Mesos, Docker, vSphere) or public cloud (AWS, GCP, Azure) using pre-defined templates.
No-code Advanced Deployment Strategies
OpsMx ISD comes with cloud-native deployment strategies, handles underlying orchestration such as verifying health checks, disabling old server groups, and enabling new server groups. It supports red/black, rolling red/black, A|B, canary deployments strategies.
OpsMx ISD offers pipeline or workflow constructs used for deployments of applications and for managing cloud resources. One gets the flexibility to add pre-defined stages like Bake, Find Image, Deploy, Disable/Enable/Resize a server group to perform a series of deployment operations automatically.
ISD enables out-of-the-box GitOps styles declarative deployments for Kubernetes or multi-destination deployments using Argo and Spinnaker. The intelligence gates allow enterprises to drive the GitOps allowing flexibility in the process yet having tight control, visibility and insights into end-to-end workflow.
Safeguards for Deployment
OpsMx ISD offers various safeguard types to ensure a new software version can be added and removed safely. From verification of a new release to one-click rollback, if issues are encountered during deployment, to cluster locking for maintaining exclusivity on resources during deployment, you get it all.
OpsMx ISD complements Jenkins as it supports easy extensibility to deploying bare metal and custom solutions for use cases that are not natively supported. While Jenkins can build artifacts, ISD can seamlessly integrates with Jenkins to fetch artifacts and automatically bake and deploy them into multiple clouds
Reduce dependency on Engineers
Reduce cognitive load on an army of engineers and architects to design Jenkins CD pipeline by leveraging already templatized CD pipeline of ISD
Zero Custom Scripts
Avoid writing custom scripts for various deployment use cases by using ISD capabilities like auto managing cloud resources, deployment strategies, rollbacks, etc.

Jenkins and Spinnaker – A Comparison
Many organizations are using a combination of Jenkins and a tool like Ansible, Puppet, Chef, or Salt to automate their CI/CD pipelines but find themselves having to do many steps manually or using a series of scripts…
