It is the development team who is adopting new ways and concept that is helping in easing the work and identifying the problems and issues so as to get the solutions for it. This is why the team is adopting the culture of continuous integration (CI) and continuous deployment (CD). This is the process which is termed to be safe, secure, and with that, it is at a low-risk and quicker response. But, it is often seen with CI/CD, that the developers are often spending their most of the time setting up and maintaining end-to-end pipelines along with the crafting deployment script that helps in writing the code.
Spinnaker is an open-source service that is jointly developed by Google and Netflix. This is a
multi-cloud continuous delivery platform that helps in getting the work done at an easy pace and level. Big players or companies like Box, Cisco, and Samsung use Spinnaker to create fast, safe, and repeatable deployments. Today our level of excitement is bit high, and this is because we are introducing Spinnaker for Google Cloud Platform solution. This is a way that lets you as a client install Spinnaker in GCP with a couple of clicks , and also to start the process of creating pipelines for CD.
Spinnaker for GCP comes with built-in deployment best practices that can be leveraged whether teams’ resources (source code, artifacts, other build dependencies) are on-premises or in the cloud. Teams get the flexibility of building, testing, and deploying to Google-managed runtimes such as Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE), Google Compute Engine (GCE), or Google App Engine (GAE), as well as other clouds or on-prem deployment targets for hybrid and multi-cloud CD.
It is that the Spinnaker is for GCP integrates Spinnaker along with the otherr Google Cloud services. This process therefore allows you to extend your CI/CD pipeline and integrate security and compliance in the process. For example: Cloud Build gives you the flexibility to create Docker containers or non-container artifacts.
Likewise, it is that integration with container registry vulnerability scanning helps to automatically scan images, and Binary Authorization ensures that you only deploy trusted container images. Then, for monitoring hybrid deployments, you can use Stackdriver to gain insights into visibility into the performance, uptime, and overall health of your application, and of Spinnaker itself.
It is the team of Google Chrome Ops developers who experience as well as use Spinnaker to deploy some of their services.
As per the saying by Ola Karlsson, “Getting a new Spinnaker instance up and running with Spinnaker for GCP was really simple”. Moving further, it is the chrome ops developers experience team who are having good work on SRE. Also, the solution that takes care of the details of the managing Spinnaker and still gives the flexibility as per the need and requirement what we expect. We’re now using it to manage our production and test Spinnaker installations.”
Moving further, Spinnaker for GCP lets you add sample pipelines and applications to Spinnaker that demonstrate best practices for deployments to Kubernetes, VMs and more. DevOps teams can use these as starting points to provide “golden path” deployment pipelines tailored to their company’s requirements.
“We want to make sure that the solution is great both for developers and DevOps or SRE teams,“ says Matt Duftler, Tech Lead for Google’s Spinnaker effort. “Developers want to get moving fast with the minimum of overhead. Platform teams can allow them to do that safely by encoding their recommended practice into Spinnaker, using Spinnaker for GCP to get up and running quickly and start onboard development teams.”
The Spinnaker for GCP advantage
The availability of Spinnaker for GCP gives customers a fast and easy way to set up Spinnaker in a production-ready configuration, optimized for GCP. Some other benefits include:
Integrated auditing and monitoring
