Overview of this book

The DevOps culture is growing at a massive rate, as many organizations are adopting it. However, implementing it for web applications is one of the biggest challenges experienced by many developers and admins, which this book will help you overcome using various tools, such as Chef, Docker, and Jenkins. On the basis of the functionality of these tools, the book is divided into three parts. The first part shows you how to use Jenkins 2.0 for Continuous Integration of a sample JEE application. The second part explains the Chef configuration management tool, and provides an overview of Docker containers, resource provisioning in cloud environments using Chef, and Configuration Management in a cloud environment. The third part explores Continuous Delivery and Continuous Deployment in AWS, Microsoft Azure, and Docker, all using Jenkins 2.0. This book combines the skills of both web application deployment and system configuration as each chapter contains one or more practical hands-on projects. You will be exposed to real-world project scenarios that are progressively presented from easy to complex solutions. We will teach you concepts such as hosting web applications, configuring a runtime environment, monitoring and hosting on various cloud platforms, and managing them. This book will show you how to essentially host and manage web applications along with Continuous Integration, Cloud Computing, Configuration Management, Continuous Monitoring, Continuous Delivery, and Deployment.

In this chapter, we covered how to use a Jenkins build job to execute SSH commands to be executed on a Chef workstation for configuration management on an AWS instance, and we also covered setting up permissions for application deployment.

We used the build pipeline plugin as well as the pipeline feature of Jenkins 2.0 for end-to-end automation. This chapter provided a brief overview of all deployment methods covered in this book and how they are different from each other. It also provides a brief overview of deployment methods with respect to the build pipeline.

Finally, we covered the Hygieia DevOps dashboard as it provides an end-to-end unified view of tools used in the automation process.
