The DevOps 2.4 Toolkit

By: Viktor Farcic

Overview of this book

Building on The DevOps 2.3 Toolkit: Kubernetes, Viktor Farcic brings his latest exploration of the Docker technology as he records his journey to continuously deploying applications with Jenkins into a Kubernetes cluster. The DevOps 2.4 Toolkit: Continuously Deploying Applications with Jenkins to a Kubernetes Cluster is the latest book in Viktor Farcic’s series that helps you build a full DevOps Toolkit. This book guides readers through the process of building, testing, and deploying applications through fully automated pipelines. Within this book, Viktor will cover a wide-range of emerging topics, including an exploration of continuous delivery and deployment in Kubernetes using Jenkins. It also shows readers how to perform continuous integration inside these clusters, and discusses the distribution of Kubernetes applications, as well as installing and setting up Jenkins. Work with Viktor and dive into the creation of self-adaptive and self-healing systems within Docker.

Defining Continuous Deployment

The work on defining Continuous Deployment (CDP) steps should not start in Jenkins or any other similar tool. Instead, we should focus on Shell commands and scripts and turn our attention to the CI/CD tools only once we are confident that we can execute the full process with only a few commands.

We should be able to execute most of the CDP steps from anywhere. Developers should be able to run them locally from a Shell. Others might want to integrate them into their favorite IDEs. The number of ways all or parts of the CDP steps can be executed might be quite huge. Running them as part of every commit is only one of those permutations. The way we execute CDP steps should be agnostic to the way we define them. If we add the need for very high (if not complete) automation, it is clear that the steps must be simple commands or Shell scripts. Adding anything...
