Jenkins Pipeline is the industry standard for developing pipelines to automate workflows, integrations, and deployments. In this article, we will explore an end-to-end pipeline that begins with building a Docker image for an application, and ends with deploying it to a Kubernetes cluster.
With the increasing frequency of development and deployment cycles, the adoption of Infrastructure as Code (IaC) practices have changed how software engineers build, test and deliver applications. Automation tools that support these practices are key to enabling faster and more efficient building and configuring of infrastructure, reducing the cost and effort involved.
Containers are highly efficient vehicles for developing and deploying apps.
