There are several benefits of moving to a container based architecture including
faster code deployments and reduction in operational cost. Kubernetes has
evolved as the deafacto orchestration tool for managing containers. First, we will
list the key principles and then go into details on how to build & modern CI CD
Kubernetes Docker deployment pipeline.

As we help our customers refactor monolith code into separate services, one big
challenge that comes along with micro services is that each service needs to
have itʼs own build and release cycle. While itʼs possible to manage them using
traditional Develops tools, our main aim here is to build & modern continuous
integration and delivery (CI CD) pipeline for Kubernetes.

In this detailed multi-part blog series, we will walk through the process step by
step and cover key principles that are required to build a modern CI CD for
Kubernetes Docker deploymen0t pipeline namely:

Modern CI CD Kubernetes Docker deployment pipeline:

  • Source Control Management and Branching
  • Kubernetes Clusters, Environments and Cloud Strategy
  • Configuration Management using Helm
  • Infrastructure Automation
  • Versioning: Code, Images & API
  • Code Quality and Analysis: SonarQube, Fortify, Veracode
  • Continuous Integration Pipelines: Jenkins, TravicCI, CircleCI etc
  • Containerization: Docker Images & Container Registry
  • Continuous Delivery Pipelines: BitBucket Pipelines
  • Code Release Strategy: Spinnaker
  • Automated Testing: SoapUI, Selenium
  • Kubernetes Ingress & Service Mesh
  • Logging: Elastic Search, Logstash, Kibana, Fluentd
  • Databases: Versioning and Release
  • Mobile Releases: iOS and Android
  • Monitoring: Dynatrace, Weave Cloud, Prometheus
  • Performance: JMeter, LoadRunner
  • Notifications and Alerts: Email, Slack, Hipchat
  • Security & Compliance
  • Backup and Disaster Recovery

In addition, most of the information in our blogs will be based on our personal
experiences with large enterprises and startups. We have helped build end-toend
automated CI CD pipelines for complex projects at these workplaces for our
customers and clients. We hope this information c&n be useful for our readers

In conclusion, we at codeRISE hope this will provide good insight on how to setup
a modern CI CD Kubernetes Docker deployment pipeline and we hope to get some
valuable feedback in return. Stay tuned!
