How Does Spinnaker Fit into your CI/CD Tool Chain?

How Does Spinnaker Fit into your CI/CD Tool Chain?

Spinnaker can integrate with any CI/CD tools in your environment. It complements CI tools such as Jenkins and Travis CI by orchestrating the entire deployment pipeline, including invoking the CI tools, fetching the artifacts they create, and deploying the final package into the target environments.For detailed Spinnaker integration please click here

Increase release velocity

Both the speed of each update, and the time required to prepare to promote an update, are dramatically reduced when you use Spinnaker. This has enabled many organizations to increase their cadence by 10x.

Cut costs

By improving the utilization of infrastructure, reducing the number of errors found in production, and by increasing the productivity of developers, testers, and SREs, Spinnaker generates significant cost savings.

Reduce Risk

Both the speed of each update, and the time required to prepare to promote an update, are dramatically reduced when you use Spinnaker. This has enabled many organizations to increase their cadence by 10x.

Create a seamless CI/CD process

Spinnaker can integrate with CI tools, like Jenkins, and on the completion of the build process, trigger a pipeline to fetch artefacts from repositories (like Docker HUB) and deploy into a test, staging, or production environment. Spinnaker can notify post deployment health status of application to all stakeholders.

Deploy applications and infrastructure changes ondemand

With the Spinnaker pipeline you can deploy application changes and infrastructure changes into the target environment on demand. You can deploy infrastructure updates using a manifest YAML as text, or by specifying new artifacts like a Docker Image, AMI or a file stored in GitHub. Further, Spinnaker can provision infrastructure in AWS, GCP or others using Terraform scripts in the pipeline.

GitOps style deployment or managed delivery

Apart from the ability to deploy using pipelines through defining stages, Spinnaker also offers declarative delivery models also known as GitOps style deployment or managed delivery. You can declare the desired state of your infrastructure resources like security groups, load balancers, and clusters in YAML files in Git and trigger Spinnaker pipeline to submit YAML changes to the Spinnaker API. Spinnaker will then manage the deployment process for you.
