Automated Releases with Pipelines

Create deployment pipelines that run integration and system tests, spin server groups up and down, and monitor your rollouts. Trigger pipelines via git events, Jenkins, Travis CI, Docker, CRON, or other Spinnaker pipelines.

Pipeline-as-code

Manage the pipeline as code (JSON) or interact with pipeline using API or UI.

Safe Deployment Strategies

Deploy using Canary or Red/Black (Blue/Green) or Rolling update, and enable automated Canary-analysis to ensure safety of the new updates before full-rollout to production.

1-Click Rollback

Rolling back new deployments is never been easier with a 1-click rollback of images/configurations.

Automated Verification

Verify new software releases for suitability for production including reliability and business impact in an automated fashion during Canary or Red/Black or Rolling Red/Black or post-deployment in production

Audit And Compliance

Automate audit and compliance verification and violation alerting and prevent non-compliance deployments with pre-defined compliant pipelines

Pre-defined templates and KPI dashboard

Quickly onboard users and applications to the continuous delivery platform and scale with pre-defined templates and monitor with operational and KPI dashboard

    "One click deployments using Spinnaker"

    What do you like best?

    You can setup pipelines for different processes.. e.g. one pipeline can be configured just to release artifacts while another will pickup the released artifacts and deploy it to any domain that is configured. Each pipeline is configurable with steps that can be defined and linked to jenkins jobs that can either cut artifacts, create docker images, deploy docker images to domains etc..

    What do you dislike?

    For manual judgement steps which need to be triggered manually, if there are multiple pipelines waiting in that phase, it is not possible to move them forward until the others are dismissed. Workflow Steps are unidirectional so there is no going back in case anything fails or needs a change.

    What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

    We used to release everything manually and deploy using chef which was causing bottlenecks. We wanted to do a one click deployment functionality which are fast and do not require constant supervision.

    "Deploys AMI's in AWS as well as images in docker"

    What do you like best?

    Spinnaker enables you to deploy code pipelines into the cloud on with great flexibility.

    What do you dislike?

    Ironically, it is a nightmare to setup and configure. It is a total pet that requires the used of a purpose built installer. The primary way for deploying software seems to be via manually created pipelines rather than code by infrastructure. It is a little split brained in that it is made to make deployments in the cloud easy and reproducible, but spinnaker itself is not that way, and neither is the creation of the pipelines.

    Recommendations to others considering the product:

    Spend the time learning Halyard. It is a pain and, to me, feels like the wrong way to install a production system, but it is the supported and actively developed install path.

    What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

    It enables us to deploy AMI's on AWS EC2 instances via a CDO model.

    "Spinnaker among other delivery platforms"

    What do you like best?

    It supports incremental deployments and supports “green/blue” deployments which are crucial in Agile methodology. Due to cloud deployments, it is easy to manage and configure deployment pipelines. The best part is easy creation and adjustment of deployment pipelines using a GUI interface.

    What do you dislike?

    It does not have plugins options like in Jenkins which makes it hard to work with. Secondly, It is not comfortable in managing SCM, thirdly, we sometimes struggle in running tests and building packages. Spinnaker API is more popular than the Spinnaker pipeline to deploy to AWS.

    Recommendations to others considering the product:

    Spinnaker helps in deploying a cloud-based delivery model. It makes easier due to application, cluster, and server groups understanding. Overall, it is still grooming and hopefully, Netflix will provide more changes to it. Nonetheless, it is still an amazing product to try out.

    What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

    Initially, it was difficult in the client environment to deploy anything as lots of process needs to be followed, but by CI CD, and using Spinnaker deployments are smooth, more than 200+ deployments have been completed in last 6 months. The project is on track and will finish sooner than expected.

    "Fantastic cloud-agnostic deployment tool"

    What do you like best?

    The ability to fully control and deploy the whole infrastructure. Very, very customizable pipelines. Full overview of your infrastructure, logs for all the changes. Easy reverts of the failed deployments, all the AWS features are fully supported.

    What do you dislike?

    It's really hard to setup and configure from scratch, especially, if you have some tricky and specific setup. Knowledge base is still very small and missing a lot of important things, so you need to try a lot to find your perfect setup. But, if you've configured it once, it will just work in the perfect manner for years.

    Recommendations to others considering the product:

    You need to spend a lot of time once to install and configure everything and to find the way to automatically change the applications and pipelines, but when you will finish with it, you will just have fun and your life will become much easier.

    What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

    We wanted to have the single-point deployment tool for the very specific and multi-account setup, which will allow us to control everything. We've got it and after the hard work to set it up, having fun every day.

    "Modern Pipelines for Modern Applications and Infratructure"

    What do you like best?

    Spinnaker makes it easy to coordinate my build and deployment processes on multiple clouds with the same interface. This helps to standardize how pipelines are created that move code to different environments while making the steps very transparent. The project has great opensource support and some companies providing enterprise capabilities as well. I also like the fact that user authentication and authorization is integrated for separation of concerns for manual adjudication of deployments and access to projects.

    What do you dislike?

    Spinnaker is still growing to support a larger user base than just Netflix and some features still need work. Pipelines as code to facilitate storing and reproducing pipelines is a much needed feature that would make standing up new pipelines much simpler. Spinnaker is composed off microservices which can make deploying and managing the platform difficult and require a lot of compute power to run. If your company is mature in its infrastructure capabilities than this tool makes sense but might not be right for smaller shops.

    Recommendations to others considering the product:

    Evaluate your ability to implement and support a platform that is fairly heavyweight composed of multiple components. Be clear that this is an "enterprise" level solution because it could be expensive to maintain for both compute and people resources. This solution requires a certain level of maturity around immutable infrastructure to truly take advantage but if you are there, this is the only solution of its kind.

    What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

    Separating and orchestrating build and deployment processes to achieve cohesive management of software rollouts to cloud and container environments. Spinnaker does a great job of providing a visual environment to view and manage CI and deployment steps for software in a cloud-native environment. I also like the integration with Kubernetes to deploy containerized applications.
