The ShuttleOps’s no code continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) platform is now available on Kubernetes.
The organization’s goal was to speed up the rate at which it could develop applications without employing an IT operations team for installing and managing the CI/CD platform. The applications were already being constructed and deployed on the platform.
A no-code solution removed the need to master tasks like knowing how to employ YAML files to deploy software on a Kubernetes cluster. The platform also allows to secure application secrets and configures cloud firewalls, by eliminating the need for out-of-band processes. It provides support for ConfigMaps Secrets and Ingress Controllers and provision of Kubernetes namespaces and rolling deployment.
ShuttleOps can be used in a self-managed Kubernetes environment or on a managed Kubernetes service provided by Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft, or Google.
The aim is to help make it easier for organizations to become software companies by removing all the costs associated with deploying a CI/CD platform. Having a no-code alternative reduces the challenges for many organizations that used to employ IT teams fully dedicated to DevOps.
Without the costs and resources associated with deploying a DevOps platform, developers are able to deploy and manage their own CI/DC environments, which allows them to speed up the rate of building and distribute applications. This way, all developers can have access to the best DevOps practices.
Some IT organizations, which have standardized on a CI/CD platform, might be willing to get an easier to manage alternative, as they are already using their existing CI/CD platforms to build monolithic and microservices-based applications. There are many deployments of Kubernetes clusters where no CI/CD platforms exist and so, a large number of teams might choose to deploy one that runs natively on Kubernetes.
Hence, the rise of microservices will undeniably drive more businesses to adopt DevOps practices. Now, the challenge will be to determine which CI/CD platform allows them to best achieve that goal.
