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.

Creating a Continuous Deployment Pipeline with Jenkins

Having a continuous deployment pipeline capable of a fully automated application life-cycle is a real sign of maturity of an organization.

This is it. The time has come to put all the knowledge we obtained into good use. We are about to define a "real" continuous deployment pipeline in Jenkins. Our goal is to move every commit through a set of steps until the application is installed (upgraded) and tested in production. We will undoubtedly face some new challenges, but I am confident that we'll manage to overcome them. We already have all the base ingredients, and the main thing left is to put them all together into a continuous deployment pipeline.

Before we move into a practical section, we might want to spend a few moments discussing our goals.
