How Jenkins X updates this CI/CD tool for the cloud, Kubernetes

Source- searchmicroservices.techtarget.com Jenkins was one of the first essential technologies of the DevOps revolution. As such, development and operations teams around the world constructed expansions, build packs and plugins for this CI/CD tool. Unfortunately, Jenkins wasn’t built for the cloud or designed for containers. In fact, most Jenkins environments differ substantially from a Docker or Kubernetes ecosystem. This left many developers struggling to figure out how they could continue to use this tried-and-true open source automation server. This is the problem that Jenkins X was designed to

Survey: Container security is a growing concern for IT professionals

Source- fiercetelecom.com It’s not surprising that 60% of the IT security professionals in a recent survey have experienced security incidents with their container usage over the past year. But it is somewhat surprising 47% of those security professionals who manage environments with containers responded that they did deploy containers with known vulnerabilities. Maybe the promise of containers is too tempting for some IT professionals to resist. And a majority of them don’t have the same IT resources as a large telco.

What is software application enhancement?

Source- techhq.com Software application developers and programmers work hard to build the apps we use every day. Developers also spend a lot of time focused on engineering, integrating and deploying that software alongside their operations ‘Ops’ counterparts– often in newly-established DevOps teams designed to combine the working goals of both parties. But not all apps just get built and then retired or killed off. Lifecycle management Many applications (and wider database analytics systems) will go through what the industry likes to

Getting started with CI/CD: 6 pitfalls to avoid

Source- enterprisersproject.com What shapes the long-term success of your CI/CD effort? A faster, more automated pipeline for software development? We recently outlined 4 success factors when getting started with CI/CD – and all led back to culture. That’s helpful, but it’s also productive to look at the downsides – not of CI/CD itself, but of common mistakes organizations make, especially when they’re just starting out. “If done right, proper continuous delivery and integration can lead to great customer experiences,” says Joy Scharmen, director of DevOps at Optimizely.
