Using Kubernetes for Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery

Day 2 / 10:45  / Track 1  / Lang: EN

Learn how to scale your Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery environment using containers. The Kubernetes project provides a container orchestration solution that greatly simplifies app deployments in large clusters and you can use Jenkins and Kubernetes together to run jobs on-demand.

Building and testing is a great use case for containers, both due to the dynamic and isolation aspects, but it increases complexity when scaling to multiple nodes and clusters.

Jenkins is an example of an application that can take advantage of Kubernetes technology to run Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery workloads. Jenkins and Kubernetes can be integrated to transparently use on demand containers to run build agents and jobs, and isolate job execution. It also supports CI/CD-as-code using Jenkins Pipelines and automated deployments to Kubernetes clusters. The presentation will allow a better understanding of how to use Jenkins on Kubernetes for container based, totally dynamic, large scale CI and CD.
