The DevOps concept includes CI/CD as its key point. Continuous delivery adoption speeds up the app construction and shortens the feedback cycle. It helps teams develop a competitive product and deliver it quicker due to automated processes.
With continuous integration and delivery/deployment developers no longer need to build and test code manually. They can use this time to work on the product improvement — Jenkins runs the texts and releases automatically.
Now that development teams can implement CI/CD they get everything done automatically. There is no need to test or deploy code manually.
Continuous integration allows development teams to compile pieces of code and test them automatically. The only thing a developer will have to do is to create that code.
After Jenkins has approved the quality of the code, it releases to the repository that stores versions. Whenever you’re ready Jenkins deploys the new version to the prod. In the end you save all the time you would spend on building, testing, and deploying.
To determine whether your infrastructure is ready for CI/CD integration, we analyze the flow of the version control system (Git), release management, and examine the technology stack of the project to provide you with in-depth DevOps strategy consulting. Based on the results of the analysis, we develop a solution applying our best practices in Jenkins, CircleCI, GitLab, BitBucket Pipelines, etc.
CI/CD Pipeline Implementation
Here at OpsWorks Co. we do everything possible to ensure that our clients meet their business goals. However, a perfectly set pipeline cannot be simply applied to all systems. In order to create an automation process that will benefit your specific system, we run the audit and analyze the specifics of the development processes. We take building, testing, and deployment off of your shoulders safely.
CI/CD Refining and Consulting
‘We cannot shorten the deployment time’, ‘We don’t have an expertise in CI/CD tools’, ‘Jenkins dysfunctions’, — are these issues familiar to you? If so, It’s time to discuss your options.
Continuous integration is used for running automated tests on a product under development. The process locates errors of the previous update much faster for changes to be implemented quickly. The iteration of tests continues until the product is of the best quality. Continuous delivery is a continuation of continuous integration as it automatically builds, tests, and prepares code changes for deployment. By implementing this practice, the company is able to safely make changes to the code and allows end users to use new features faster.
The first step is to have a DevOps team which is coherent in its operations. Since they are a combination of two previously separate teams, they must work together. Secondly, you must have proper CI/CD tools that are in line with the software that you produce at your company. Finally, the processes require that the DevOps engineers use the tools efficiently. Trust experts from OpsWorks Co. with this task.
The main difference is that continuous integration is applied during the product development, and it runs tests to check the code for bugs. On the other hand, continuous delivery is an extension of CI as it is applied after the built-up software stage. On top of running tests, the CD also automatically builds and prepares the software for production. OpsWorks Co. offers both of these to maximize the efficiency of product development.
First would be Jenkins, a Java-based program available for Windows, macOS, and Unix operating systems. With Jenkins, you can automate the building and deployment of your software projects. Next we’d recommend CircleCI, a CI/CD tool with multiple capabilities to optimize your software development. CircleCI enables automation throughout the design process from building to testing and deployment.
OpsWorks Co. boasts capable DevOps engineers who are experts in their respective fields. They are fully prepared to help with the optimization of your CI/CD pipeline. With more than 100 companies acquiring their services, they are one of the best on the market. They use a wide range of tools including GitLab, Python, Jenkins, Kubernetes, and CircleCI, to name a few. No task is impossible for OpsWorks Co.
