Docker Virtualization, known for its simple and convenient way of deploying applications is the best-to-go option for every developer and organisation. Also, it offers the flexibility to run multiple applications on the provided host or directly executing the container within the host environment per se. Here, in this article, a basic working environment will be created by setting Nginx as a web server and MySQL as the database, all within separate Docker containers.
Docker offers a set of PaaS (Platform as a Service) works using its container-based technology to address the limitations of Virtualization that had been experienced over the years now. This article will start with the basic procedure on how to verify your access to Docker Hub and thereby to search images using the Docker commands followed by searching the Nginx official image for demonstration purpose.
Docker, an open-source container-based technology, aims to streamline and manage workload via distributed applications. In the simplest form, it’s just another form of Virtualization and the difference lies in the fact that Docker outranks the benefits of traditional Virtualization almost in every aspect. Here, you will learn about the installation process of Docker on the Ubuntu 18.04 system.
This article will walk-you through what is Docker; how it works, why we opt Docker instead of Virtualization, what are the aspects and benefits that stand out Container technology from traditional VMs and so forth. Further, a list of important Docker terminologies have been explained for the benefit of Docker installation and usage.
The CI/CD pipeline, known as the Build Pipeline works on granting better visibility over the automated steps during the CI/CD process. For example, it makes use of build servers like Jenkins, Travis CI and TeamCity to achieve visibility over all the automated phases, and fetches the status and info in the UI form. This way of tracking the progress of automated steps is crucial so as to ensure the fine-workings of the phases and the expected outcome.
The CI being the process within the process of DevOps practice plays a vital part from building the source code until delivering the deployment-ready software package. Nonetheless, in this article, you will see what makes the Continuous Integration so remarkable; the different stages involved, its benefits and the role it plays in the entire DevOps process.
As we all know, the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) comprises numerous stages both major and minor that differs from one company to another. One common benefit is that the automated pipelines help to remove error-prone manual steps, provide standardized development feedback loops and enable fast product iterations. In this article, let us see the essentials of Continuous Delivery/Deployment, its difference, role and significance and benefits upon implementing it in the SDLC process.
In the previous articles of the same Jenkins series, you might have come across the Jenkins installation and how to build a basic job in Jenkins. As a continuation article, you will learn how to build and create a basic pipeline in Jenkins.
The Jenkins “Freestyle” job enables you to build sequential tasks in the application lifecycle. Yet at the same time, there are some post-build actions that are limited in its nature. With the help of plugins, you can easily overthrow these restrictions and extend the Jenkins functionality so as to use its benefits to the fullest. Here in this article, we are going to create the basic Freestyle Project, (one of the flexible and easy projects to be built) in Jenkins.
The CI/CD is a set of methods used to deploy code-changes more readily and frequently via automation. It stands for Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery/Deployment, practice in the DevOps culture. Explore what role does it play in the DevOps culture; its impact, phases and much more.
