OpenSource For You - - Fossbytes -

Google has re­leased v1.0 of Spin­naker. The new open source tool is de­signed for the multi-cloud con­tin­u­ous de­liv­ery plat­form.

The search gi­ant started work­ing on Spin­naker back in Novem­ber

2015 along with Net­flix. The tool was aimed at of­fer­ing large com­pa­nies fast, se­cure and re­peat­able pro­duc­tion de­ploy­ments. It has so far been used by or­gan­i­sa­tions like Mi­crosoft, Net­flix, Waze, Tar­get and Or­a­cle.

The Spin­naker ver­sion 1.0 comes with a rich UI dash­board and of­fers users the abil­ity to in­stall the tool on premise, on lo­cal in­fra­struc­ture and the cloud. You can run it from a vir­tual ma­chine as well as us­ing Ku­ber­netes. The plat­form can be in­te­grated with work­flows like Git, Docker reg­istries, Travis CI and pipe­lines. It can be used for best­prac­tice de­ploy­ment strate­gies as well. “With Spin­naker, you sim­ply choose the de­ploy­ment strat­egy you want to use for each en­vi­ron­ment, e.g., red/black for stag­ing, rolling red/black for pro­duc­tion, and it or­ches­trates the dozens of steps nec­es­sary un­der­the-hood,” said Christo­pher San­son, the prod­uct man­ager for Google Cloud Plat­form.

Google has op­ti­mised Spin­naker 1.0 for Google Com­pute En­gine, Con­tainer En­gine, App En­gine, Ama­zon Web Ser­vices, Ku­ber­netes, OpenS­tack and Mi­crosoft Azure. The com­pany plans to add sup­port for Or­a­cle Bare Metal and DC/OS in up­com­ing releases.
