Docker in Continuous Integration: Part 3

A Docker image registry service makes it easy for developers to store, manage, distribute and deploy Docker images. Use a registry service to control the storing of your images, fully own your images distribution pipeline and integrate image storage and distribution tightly into your in-house development work flow.

This blog covers "Pushing a Docker image to a registry of your choice" scenario in the Docker in Continuous Integration (CI) series. We'll go over a simple example and look at advanced scenarios of using Docker images within CI and Continuous Delivery (CD) Pipelines.

Docker in Continuous Integration: Part 2

This blog explains "Build your own Docker image" scenario in the Docker in Continuous Integration (CI) series. The three scenarios covered in this series are:

  1. Use an existing Docker image
  2. Build your own Docker image
  3. Push a Docker image to a registry of your choice

We'll go over the reasons to build your own Docker image, steps to do so and an example to follow along.

Docker in Continuous Integration: Part 1

This blog series covers three Docker in Continuous Integration (CI) scenarios. A CI process combined with immutable Docker images expedites delivering software changes. Shippable makes it easy for you to use Docker images in your CI process, without a separate DevOps tool or code. The three scenarios covered in this series are:

  1. Use an existing Docker image
  2. Build your own Docker image
  3. Push a Docker image to a registry of your choice

In this blog, I'll cover the first scenario.

Snap CI is shutting down its CI/CD DevOps platform

A few days ago, we woke up to the sad news that the Thoughtworks team had decided to shut down Snap CI in August. We have the greatest respect for Thoughtworks and their mission and want to convey our best wishes to the team for their next adventure. 

If you're a current Snap CI customer, Shippable is a great fit as a replacement CI/CD platform. It is completely free to try us out and we are happy to offer help with migrating your CI configuration to Shippable. Please contact support@shippable.com for more information.

How Shippable compares to other CI/CD providers

Please read CI/CD and DevOps expert Yegor Bugayengo's blog ranking of CI providers where he ranks Shippable as the top platform. Shippable is also ranked first among all hosted CI providers on Slant.co.

While these rankings focus on CI, Shippable also provides value beyond CI by offering a complete platform for DevOps workflows, including deploying a versioned package into a series of environments, release management, approval workflows, etc.
