The fundamental cornerstone of DevOps is CI and CD and it changed the way developers and testers go about with software releases. Continuous integration (CI) helps in integrating codes and sharing in mainline repositories while continuous delivery (CD) enables short release cycles ensuring release at any required time without defects. A CI/CD DevOps automated pipelines remove manual errors and provide feedback that enables rapid iterations focusing product release.
When our client struggled aligning their workflow during the process of digital transformation, we helped them strategize and implement a completely automated CI/CD pipeline using many tools notably the VSTS resulting in productivity increase and downtime reduction to 99.9%.Download full case study
When there is a transition or a new adoption on technology or culture, you may face a difficulty in understanding and implementing them. Though Continuous integration and continuous delivery looks simple to adopt and apply, one may also easily get it wrong if you do not approach it right. You may face hindrances like
Confusion between continuous delivery and continuous deployment
Unnecessary utilization of resource
These kinds of challenges may lead to difficult times in business creating pitfalls like not-so-good ROI, delay in delivery, slower and lesser productivity and innovation obstacles. We at Aspire help you overcome these challenges by taking the right step in DevOps with our CI/CD services.
CI and CD are a must in the modern era of technology as it revised the way software is developed. Integrating CI and CD leads to faster builds and quicker deliveries unaltering the quality of software. The core concept of this pipeline is about making changes to code, building, testing and delivering effectively responding to business requirements. The process includes code repository and version control, build and integration automation, release automation, delivery automation and production automation. We provide design and deployment services, customized CI/CD implementation services and plug-ins to shape the process. Our DevOps consultants will
Analyze your delivery workflow
Jot down your requirements
Build a strategized roadmap for CI/CD implementation
We provide design and deployment services, customized service of CI/CD implementation and CI/CD solutions with right platforms suiting your needs.
Jenkins, an open source tool helps in building continuous integration and continuous deployment (CI/CD) pipeline by automation. This popular server-based tool monitors repeated tasks during project development that includes, testing the build continuously and detecting errors throughout the CI/CD pipeline. It is easy to install, configure and eases distribution process across multiple systems. Also, it has numerous plug-ins added to its advantages which enables you to sculpt Jenkins to meet the DevOps CI/CD process. Therefore, Jenkins automates builds and tests rapidly and supports complete software lifecycle to accelerate your business value.
GitLab CI/CD is a tool for software development through continuous integration, continuous delivery and continuous deployment pipeline. With this open source tool, you can build an entire CI/CD pipeline solution, create instances, write codes and set up tools without external application. Continuous integration pushes code and integrates in Git repository while continuous delivery sends the CI validated codes to application quickly. Therefore, CI and CD together accelerate delivery time with standardized quality. Our experts having hands-on experience with GitLab CI/CD services and continuous integration tool which will allow your team to integrate their work iteratively to find bugs and to fix them automatically.
Organizations around the world are upgrading continuous integration and continuous delivery pipeline by using Bamboo. It brings a strong combination of scalability, flexibility, CI/CD approach, GUI to create greater experience as you build the development cycle. With supporting tools like Jira software and BitBucket server, it gets stronger and offers better visibility of code changes, builds and deployments across platforms. It is similar to Jenkins as both aims at delivering quality of services but, Bamboo is a commercial tool and is more user-friendly while, Jenkins is an open source tool associated with other features. You may have a development team with minimum resources or a giant team with stacked builds on pipeline, using Bamboo you can ease the process of software delivery while delivering higher quality.
With many development and delivery priorities, it could be an issue to often check the CI/CD work process to have a stable pipeline flow. CodeShip, a CI tool helps you in taking care of this process. This tool is essential to control and optimize continuous integration and continuous delivery pipeline thereby, assisting you in organizing and streamlining your projects. You can easily set up your builds with UI and ship to configuration as code and from one platform to the other. CodeShip helps in building and monitoring of CI/CD pipelines through automation.
Travis, a service tool lets you sign up, link repositories, build and test applications on cloud. Since, you host Travis on cloud it eliminates the need for a customized server and initiates continuous integration automation effortlessly. Travis CI monitors GitHub projects, runs tests and parallel tests, checks code and artifacts and generates results rapidly. It offers hosted tool and also acts as a self-hosted tool called Travis CI enterprise and they enable you to build on out-of-the-box languages and runtimes on different operating systems. While the Travis CI hosted tool aims at testing open source projects, Travis CI enterprise targets at including features required by enterprises like GitHub enterprise integration.
You can now deploy and scale your application without having to configure and manage them manually with Cloud Foundry. It focuses on adopting organized, stateless method and automation of the iterative processes in CI/CD pipeline enabling you to focus on deployments successfully. This stateless approach starts, ends and replicates if any commit fails and duplicates if the requirement increases. Cloud Foundry provides better access control, automatic routing, application management and deployment scaling. Also, it supports availability for all highly durable applications.
Team City, yet another commercial tool like Bamboo is popular for its simple set up and user interface with amazing features and a widening plug-in network. It stands out for its well-constructed UI, secured configuration management. Its features consist of build history, code quality tracker, source control and tools. With these resources, you can build, pre-test, run automated test and check before making changes to codes, which ensures clean code base. This lets you set your continuous integration and continuous deployment (CI/CD) pipeline in code using TeamCity configuration scripts and runs parallel builds on different environments.
Visual studio team service (VSTS) allows you to improve quality of the code and security through automation. Besides automating builds, tests and deployments of applications, you can also view the changes in code, test results and helps in reviewing the CI/CD pipeline. With the early detection of any errors, it becomes easier to resolve and fix them instantly. It fosters efficiency and agility in teams as there is frequent update with features and functionalities. With functionalities, you can also add extensions like GitHub, Slack, Tower Git, etc
At Aspire Systems, our DevOps experts can analyze your environment and work accordingly to make sure that optimum Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery services are utilized properly. Irrespective of whether your DevOps build and release environment needs only some minor amendments or a complete overhaul or anything in-between, we can get it done for you. Our CI/CD services include an extensive array of offerings including Readiness Assessment, CI/CD Pipeline Tool Selection, Implementation, Configuration Management etc. We have extensive experience in working with tools like Jenkins, GitLab, TeamCity, Codeship, Bamboo etc.
