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.

Continuous delivery is a step down from continuous deployment. Instead of deploying every commit from the master branch to production, we are choosing which build should be promoted. Continuous delivery has that single manual step that forces us (humans) to decide which release should be upgraded in production.

Given that we already explored continuous deployment, you might be wondering why are we even talking at this point about continuous delivery. There are a few reasons for that. First of all, I am conscious that many of you will not or can not implement continuous deployment. Your tests might not be as reliable as you'd need them to be. Your processes might not allow full automation. You might have to follow regulations that prevent you from reaching nirvana. There could be many other reasons. The point is that not everyone...
