Spinnaker is a multi-cloud continuous delivery platform for releasing software changes with high velocity and confidence.
It combines a powerful and flexible pipeline management system with integrations to the major cloud providers. Spinnaker consists of a number of independent microservices, with the Halyard CLI tool or the Kubernetes Operator (Beta) managing the lifecycle of the other services.
This is free and open source software.
- Automated releases – create deployment pipelines that run integration and system tests, spin up and down server groups, and monitor your rollouts. Trigger pipelines via git events, Jenkins, Travis CI, Docker, CRON, or other Spinnaker pipelines.
- Built-in deployment best practices – create and deploy immutable images for faster rollouts, easier rollbacks, and the elimination of hard to debug configuration drift issues. Leverage an immutable infrastructure in the cloud with built-in deployment strategies such as red/black and canary deployments.
- Multi-cloud – deploy across multiple cloud providers including AWS EC2, Kubernetes, Google Compute Engine, Google Kubernetes Engine, Google App Engine, Microsoft Azure, Openstack, Cloud Foundry, and Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, with DC/OS coming soon.
- Role-based Access Control – restrict access to projects or accounts by hooking into your internal authentication system using OAuth, SAML, LDAP, X.509 certs, Google Groups, Azure Groups, or GitHub Teams.
- Chaos Monkey Integration – test that your application can survive instance failures by terminating them on purpose.
- CI Integrations – listen to events, collect artifacts, and trigger pipelines from Jenkins or Travis CI. Triggers via git, cron, or a new image in a docker registry are also supported.
- CLI for Setup and Admin – install, configure, and update your Spinnaker instance with halyard, Spinnaker’s CLI tool.
- Deployment Strategies – configure pipelines with built-in deployment strategies such as highlander and red/black, with rolling red/black and canary in active development, or define your own custom strategy.
- Restricted Execution Windows – restrict the execution of stages to certain windows of time, making sure deployments happen during off-peak traffic or when the right people are on hand to monitor the roll-out.
- Manual Judgments – require a manual approval prior to releasing an update with a manual judgement stage.
- Monitoring Integrations – tie your releases to monitoring services Datadog, Prometheus, Stackdriver, SignalFx, or New Relic using their metrics for canary analysis.
- Notifications – set up event notifications for email, Slack, HipChat, or SMS (via Twilio).
- VM Bakery – bake immutable VM images via Packer, which comes packaged with Spinnaker and offers support for Chef and Puppet templates.
