How to Improve Release Quality with OpsMx?
In our previous blog on Achieving development velocity, we established how organizations can scale their development velocity without compromising on security. What is a Software Release? and why measure the quality of release? A software release is a new or an enhanced version of existing software. A Software release is aimed at improving security, features, […]
OpsMx Announces Partnership With Google Cloud To Provide Intelligent Software Delivery With Spinnaker
Recently, OpsMx partnered with Google Cloud Platform. GCP customers can now download the OpsMx Intelligent Software Delivery (ISD) platform from the GCP marketplace and start transforming their software delivery process. OpsMx ISD is a modern continuous delivery platform designed to eliminate human intervention in the software delivery process. ISD has two layers, orchestration and data […]
AI/ML for CI/CD: Reducing the risk of software release
The majority of American companies today have adopted microservices architecture and implemented CI/CD processes to deliver software faster per their business demands. After interacting with hundreds of prospects in different industries, we have realized that DevOps teams often are dependent on experts to perform deployment and production verification of software before rolling out the new […]
How to Achieve Development Velocity at Scale with OpsMx?
In this blog, we detail the importance of deployment velocity for an organization to stay competitive and meet market demand for just-in-time innovation and deliveries. Development velocity is one of the three key value drivers that the ISD platform delivers. Subscribe here and be notified when we release the blog about the other two drivers. […]
Policy & Governance in Software Delivery using Spinnaker
Introduction:- In this modern Microservices world, you can’t manage/control everybody and everything in IT. Applications are broken into multiple services that are frequently deployed many times a day, and cannot undergo manual policy checks. You need to apply clear governance policies to ensure that your people and technology are efficient and aligned with business objectives. […]
Implementation of Blue-Green Deployment with SPINNAKER and ISTIO
In software delivery, a Blue-Green deployment strategy (sometimes known as Red Black Deployment) is one where the old and the new instances of the application or microservice run in parallel at the same time in production, and a load balancer switches traffic from the older version to the newer version. In this blog, we are […]
Trigger a Spinnaker pipeline on Docker image push
Spinnaker is a great tool to orchestrate continuous delivery (CD) for software. Triggering Spinnaker pipelines based on some events such as Git based events, Docker image push events, successful Jenkins Build, etc, is usually implemented in software delivery to enhance convenience and flexibility. For e.g. To achieve GitOps, DevOps engineers configure Spinnaker pipeline to be […]
Comparison between Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) and DevOps
What is Site Reliability Engineering (SRE)? Site Reliability Engineering happens when an organization looks at problems through the lens of a software problem. SRE is a software engineering approach where Site Reliability engineers use software as a tool to manage systems, solve issues, and automate repetitive/mundane tasks. The primary aim of implementing this engineering practice […]
What is Kubernetes? Fundamentals for Beginners and Business Professionals
Introduction to Kubernetes If you want to understand the current buzzword “Kubernetes” and be able to communicate better with engineers and developers, you are in the right place. This blog will explain the basics of Kubernetes and why it is so important for modern deployment practices. Before taking the plunge into the world of Kubernetes, […]
What is GitOps and How to implement GitOps using Spinnaker CI/CD pipeline
What is GitOps? It is becoming an increasingly common practice among the high performance IT organizations to use version control like Git for infrastructure management and automation of code deployments. GitOps treats version control systems, such as Git, GitHub, GitLab, BitBucket, as the central repository or single-source-of-truth to store code declaratively and then use it […]
What is Istio? And why is it necessary for Kubernetes?
To fully understand Istio we need to take a detour and learn about Service mesh. Let us do a through recap of what a service mesh is? When infrastructures shifted from monolithic to microservices, containers could bring in consistency and granularity in managing resources. Microservices allowed us to treat one computer as many computers. This […]
