Atlassian Corporation Plc is a software company founded in 2002 that develops products for software developers, project managers and other software development teams. It employs over 7,000 people and is headquartered in Sydney, Australia.
Atlassian produces a range of proprietary software including software for collaboration, development, and issue tracking software for teams. Atlassian dominates several markets where it still has intense competition.
Broadly speaking, they offer software in three large buckets: These are software development tools; help desk software, or IT service management; and workflow management software. When you think of Atlassian, think project management and collaboration tools.
Many of their programs use a number of open source components. And their GitHub repositories hold lots of open source code. But their main range of software is proprietary. This series looks at free and open source alternatives to Atlassian’s products.
Bamboo is a continuous integration (CI) and continuous delivery (CD) tool that ties automated builds, tests, and releases in a single workflow.
Bamboo is proprietary software and not available for Linux. What are the best free and open source alternatives?
Jenkins is billed as the leading open source automation server. It offers both continuous integration and deliver tool and boasts an amazing array of plugins. It’s widely considered one of the essential CD/CD tools for DevOps professionals.
It can be installed through native system packages, Docker, or run standalone by any machine with a Java Runtime Environment (JRE) installed. It’s very easy to set up and configure.
Tekton is a powerful, vendor-neutral, and flexible framework for creating CI/CD systems, allowing developers to build, test, and deploy across cloud providers and on-premise systems.
It consists of Tekton Pipelines, which provides the building blocks, and of supporting components, such as Tekton CLI and Tekton Catalog, that make Tekton a complete ecosystem.
Tekton installs and runs as an extension on a Kubernetes cluster and comprises a set of Kubernetes Custom Resources that define the building blocks you can create and reuse for your pipelines
GoCD is another superb CI/CD system. It’s great at modeling complex CD workflows.
