Spinnaker Summit 2019
We’re hosting a conference in San Diego, CA on November 15-17th. If you’re interested in using Spinnaker, a current Spinnaker user, a Spinnaker operator, or in the DevOps space this conference will be interesting to you!
We’d like to also extend a big “Thank You!” to the many many folks who submitted talks for this year. The review committee has started the process of reading through all of the proposals and will be publishing an official summit agenda soon.
Spinnaker is an open source, multi-cloud continuous delivery platform for releasing software changes with high velocity and confidence.
Created at Netflix, it has been battle-tested in production by hundreds of teams over millions of deployments. It combines a powerful and flexible pipeline management system with integrations to the major cloud providers.
Deploy across multiple cloud providers including AWS EC2, Kubernetes, Google Compute Engine, Google Kubernetes Engine, Google App Engine, Microsoft Azure, Openstack, Cloud Foundry, and Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, with DC/OS coming soon.
Create deployment pipelines that run integration and system tests, spin up and down server groups, and monitor your rollouts. Trigger pipelines via git events, Jenkins, Travis CI, Docker, CRON, or other Spinnaker pipelines.
Built-in Deployment Best Practices
Create and deploy immutable images for faster rollouts, easier rollbacks, and the elimination of hard to debug configuration drift issues. Leverage an immutable infrastructure in the cloud with built-in deployment strategies such as red/black and canary deployments.
Join a community that includes Netflix, Google, Microsoft, Veritas, Target, Kenzan, Schibsted, and many others, actively working to maintain and improve Spinnaker.
Supported Cloud Providers
Listen to events, collect artifacts, and trigger pipelines from Jenkins or Travis CI. Triggers via git, cron, or a new image in a docker registry are also supported.
Tie your releases to monitoring services Datadog, Prometheus, Stackdriver, or SignalFx, using their metrics for canary analysis.
CLI for Setup and Admin
Install, configure, and update your Spinnaker instance with halyard, Spinnaker’s CLI tool.
Configure pipelines with built-in deployment strategies such as highlander and red/black, with rolling red/black and canary in active development, or define your own custom strategy.
Bake immutable VM images via Packer, which comes packaged with Spinnaker and offers support for Chef and Puppet templates.
Set up event notifications for email, Slack, HipChat, or SMS (via Twilio).
Role-based Access Control
Restrict access to projects or accounts by hooking into your internal authentication system using OAuth, SAML, LDAP, X.509 certs, Google groups, Azure groups, or GitHub teams.
Require a manual approval prior to releasing an update with a manual judgement stage.
White-listed Execution Windows
Restrict the execution of stages to certain windows of time, making sure deployments happen during off-peak traffic or when the right people are on hand to monitor the roll-out.
Chaos Monkey Integration
Test that your application can survive instance failures by terminating them on purpose.
