To meet the growing demand for Oracle Container Engine for Kubernetes (OKE) with global organizations, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) is introducing new capabilities that can boost the reliability and efficiency of large-scale Kubernetes environments while simplifying operations and reducing costs.
Armory released several plugins for Spinnaker (the open source, multi-cloud Continuous Deployment tool) that are designed to make Spinnaker faster and more secure.
Spinnaker can help teams deploy software quickly, safely and reliably. However, the platform presents technical and cost challenges when managing the growing number of accounts, configurations, credentials, resources and infrastructure overhead required for deployments at scale.
Armory is introducing four new plugins that are fully compatible with open source Spinnaker.
- Scale Agent - This plugin enables teams to easily, securely and dynamically manage all Kubernetes deployments while also reducing infrastructure overhead and costs. Available now for all Armory Essentials and above packages.
- Policy Engine - Using the policy engine plugin reduces operational risk, increases stability, and streamlines the adoption of modern DevSecOps practices. Available now for all Armory Essentials and above packages.
- Pipelines-as-Code - Development teams can unite continuous deployment pipelines with application development to interact, configure and automate pipeline definitions as code. Coming Soon.
- Secrets Manager - Sharing configurations in Git repos is ideal for source control repeatability and maintenance. Armory is creating a native integration with HashiCorp Vault, Google Cloud Storage, and AWS Secrets Manager to improve the Spinnaker Secrets Manager experience. Coming Soon.
"The Armory crew believes in the power of community and is committed to enabling continuous deployment for everyone, at any scale," said Adam Frank, VP of Product & Marketing at Armory. "Creating new deployment, security and observability capabilities for users of open source Spinnaker was an easy decision for us."
These plug-ins are available as Premium plugins to open source Spinnaker within Armory's commercial packages, and provide additional functionalities within Armory's Continuous Deployment Self-Hosted and Managed products. More Spinnaker-boosting features are planned in 2023.
