Set up a CI/CD Pipeline with Cloud-Native Tools

The adoption of cloud-based solutions has become increasingly common. The proof for this is evident – according to Gartner, Inc., the worldwide public cloud services market is expected to grow by 6.3% in 2020, up to a staggering $257.9 billion in value. The Flexera 2020 State of the Cloud Report, released on April 28, 2020, states that more than 90% of respondents have adopted cloud computing, with the top three cloud service providers being – AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud Platform.

JFrog & RedHat - Pizza Delivery vs. DevOps Pipeline On OpenShift

In this webinar, Baruch Sadogursky of JFrog and Aubrey Muhlach of Red Hat will demonstrate the ease of supporting DevOps with a fully-fledged pipeline in a cloud. From source control, CI server, artifact repository, security vulnerability and license compliance scanner, Docker registry, Helm repository... all the way to runtime, with OpenShift, tracing and monitoring tools. We mean EVERYTHING! So, by using the K.I.S.S. principle (keep it simple) applied to a bunch of SaaS tools, we can create an entire DevOps pipeline in 30 minutes or less! Or can’t we?

Kubernetes Deployment Antipatterns - part 1

We soon realized that we must also create a similar guide for Kubernetes deployments.
