Containers. Continuous Integration. Microservices. These are among the leading buzzwords of modern application delivery.
Continuous Integration (CI) helps developers to speed up the application development life cycle by automating build, test and deployment of the application. Continuous Delivery (CD), helps developers in shipping code from source control systems to the production environment.
You can have both CI and CD, for free, by using Shippable.In this tutorial, I'll go over what's available for free, when you need to upgrade and how to upgrade.
This is an exciting time for Shippable as we release the next version of our pipeline. As a SaaS company we constantly release new features and functionality, but this release marks a major update to our platform and services based on customer feedback and the "state of the art" for developers. You can read about the new features and updates in this blog post. In this post I want to take some time and explain how we have arrived at this point, and how we move towards the future of modern application delivery.
Platform automates deployment pipelines for all application architectures and eases adoption of cloud-native technologies like Docker containers and microservices
We have significantly updated the Shippable platform with several new features. Hence this blog post is deprecated.
Check out our blog - Deploy your first Continuous Deployment Pipeline, that uses Docker Hub for image registry and Amazon EC2 Container Service (ECS) for container service.
If you've thought about running containers on AWS, today's a big day. With the introduction of Amazon EC2 Container Registry today, you can now establish and run a container-based pipeline entirely within AWS. And with Shippable, setting up and running that pipeline with full visibility, history and control has never been easier.
During AWS re:Invent 2015, we announced our preview release for integration between Shippable and Amazon EC2 Container Service (Amazon ECS). Today, we're thrilled to announce that we've added integration with Amazon EC2 Container Registry (Amazon ECR), as well. With this integration, Shippable customers can now pull and push Docker images from Amazon ECR as part of their Shippable CI builds and deploy them with Shippable Formations across multiple clusters in Amazon ECS, without ever having to manually update a Task Definition yourself. Shippable automatically updates your ECS task definitions with the latest image information based on your CI builds and either automatically deploys or deploys with a single-click when you're ready.
