What is Jenkins? An extendable open source continuous integration server. In a nutshell Jenkins CI is the leading open-source continuous integration server. Built with Java, it provides over plugins to support building and testing virtually any project.
Jenkins is an open source tool with Here's a link to Jenkins's open source repository on GitHub. Since I am a bit tired of yapping the same every single time, I've decided to write it up and share with the world this way, and send people to read it instead. I will explain it on "live-example" of how the Rome got built, basing that current methodology exists only of readme.
It always starts with an app, whatever it may be and reading the readmes available while Vagrant and VirtualBox is installing and updating. As our Vagrant environment is now functional, it's time to break it! Sloppy environment setup? This is the point, and the best opportunity, to upcycle the existing way of doing dev environment to produce a proper, production-grade product.
I should probably digress here for a moment and explain why. I firmly believe that the way you deploy production is the same way you should deploy develop, shy of few debugging-friendly setting. This way you avoid the discrepancy between how production work vs how development works, which almost always causes major pains in the back of the neck, and with use of proper tools should mean no more work for the developers.
That's why we start with Vagrant as developer boxes should be as easy as vagrant upbut the meat of our product lies in Ansible which will do meat of the work and can be applied to almost anything: AWS, bare metal, docker, LXC, in open net, behind vpn - you name it.
We must also give proper consideration to monitoring and logging hoovering at this point. My generic answer here is to grab ElasticsearchKibanaand Logstash. While for different use cases there may be better solutions, this one is well battle-tested, performs reasonably and is very easy to scale both vertically within some limits and horizontally.
If we are happy with the state of the Ansible it's time to move on and put all those roles and playbooks to work. For me, the choice is obvious: TeamCity. It's modern, robust and unlike most of the light-weight alternatives, it's transparent. What I mean by that is that it doesn't tell you how to do things, doesn't limit your ways to deploy, or test, or package for that matter. Instead, it provides a developer-friendly and rich playground for your pipelines.
You can do most the same with Jenkinsbut it has a quite dated look and feel to it, while also missing some key functionality that must be brought in via plugins like quality REST API which comes built-in with TeamCity. It also comes with all the common-handy plugins like Slack or Apache Maven integration. The exact flow between CI and CD varies too greatly from one application to another to describe, so I will outline a few rules that guide me in it: 1. Make build steps as small as possible.
This way when something breaks, we know exactly where, without needing to dig and root around.Get new features in front of your customers faster, while improving developer productivity and software quality. Execute builds in parallel over multiple machines for fast feedback.
Spend less time debugging with detailed insights. Worried about long build and test times as you scale your team? Choose from a range of virtual machines to get even faster execution at scale. Bake in security from the get-go. Scan for security vulnerabilities as soon as artifacts are created.
Detailed reports are provided on vulnerability impact and available fixes. Define policies for different environments so that only verified artifacts get deployed. Package your source into Docker containers or non-container artifacts with build tools such as Maven, Gradle, webpack, Go, or Bazel. Perform specific build and test steps as a part of your CI workflow. Run unit and integration tests concurrently to ensure your code works.
Use multi-cloud continuous delivery tools like Spinnaker to automate all the steps, from code to deploy. Spin up environments with tools like Terraform and Packer as a part of your CI pipeline. Native support for GitHub pull requests. Run automated builds and tests for changes pushed to a GitHub repository. Use Cloud Build and GitHub for automating continuous integration workflow for serverless applications. Use Cloud Build to create pipelines and identify package vulnerabilities.
Use Cloud Build to securely connect to your on-premises resources and automate the build, test, and deploy processes. We found Cloud Build to be feature rich, yet also easy to learn and use.
We use its parallelization and caching capabilities to speed up our container builds, and leverage its container analysis API to bless our images. Its reliability has allowed us to focus our attention on other areas. Why Google close Groundbreaking solutions. Transformative know-how.

One of those environments is Kubernetesavailable as a service from all the leading cloud providers.
A number of plugins are now available to connect Jenkins with Kubernetes and use it as a deployment target for automated builds. If you're a Jenkins user interested in migrating your deployment infrastructure to Kubernetes, this guide gets you started. Bitnami's Jenkins stack lets you deploy a secure Jenkins instance on the cloud, pre-configured with common plugins for SCM integration and pipeline creation. Bitnami's infrastructure containers for Node.
This pipeline, once configured, will trigger a new build every time it detects a change to the code in the GitHub repository. The code will be built as a Docker container based on a Bitnami Node. The published container will then be deployed on a Kubernetes cluster for review and testing. Based on test results, the user can optionally choose to deploy to a production cluster.
The first step is to prepare Jenkins to work with Docker and Kubernetes. Follow the steps below:. Log in to the Jenkins server console using SSH. Follow the instructions to install Docker. Add the user running Jenkins to connect to the Docker daemon by adding it to the docker group:. By adding the user tomcat to the group dockeryou are granting it superuser rights. This is a security risk and no mitigation is provided in this guide.
You must separately address this risk in production systems. Please be aware of the risks before proceeding. Jenkins will interact with the Kubernetes cluster using a Google Cloud Platform service account. Your next step is to set up this service account and give it API access. Follow these steps:. Next, create a GitHub repository and configure it such that GitHub automatically notifies Jenkins about new commits to the repository via a webhook.Speed up your Jenkins builds with predictable performance and scalable infrastructure from Google Cloud.
Automate your Jenkins installation, upgrade, and scaling by running Jenkins in Google Kubernetes Engine. Easily scale out your build farm by leveraging Compute Engine to seamlessly run your jobs. Scan your artifacts within early stages of software development lifecycle to detect vulnerabilities.
Define policies to ensure each image has gone through the necessary stages of validation before deployment. GKE also provides ephemeral build executors, ensuring each build is run on a clean environment and cluster is used only when builds are running. Maintain control over who can access, view, or download images. Get consistent uptime on an infrastructure protected by Google security.
Scan for security vulnerabilities as soon as artifacts are created. Detailed reports are provided on vulnerability impact and available fixes. Enforce automatic policy verification to ensure only verified artifacts get deployed. Store artifacts, deploy to Kubernetes and VMs, or use private credentials for authorizing Jenkins. GCP makes scaling Jenkins real easy. With over TB of monthly data transfer and Jenkins builds spread across vCPUs, we have been able to reduce build execution from days to minutes.
And with per-second billing, we pay for only what we use. Why Google close Groundbreaking solutions. Transformative know-how.

To implement this solution, see setting up Jenkins on Kubernetes Engine. Jenkins is an open-source automation server that lets you flexibly orchestrate your build, test, and deployment pipelines.
Kubernetes Engine is a hosted version of Kubernetes, a powerful cluster manager and orchestration system for containers. When you need to set up a continuous delivery CD pipeline, deploying Jenkins on Kubernetes Engine provides important benefits over a standard VM-based deployment:. When your build process uses containers, one virtual host can run jobs against different operating systems. Kubernetes Engine provides ephemeral build executors, allowing each build to run in a clean environment that's identical to the builds before it.
As part of the ephemerality of the build executors, the Kubernetes Engine cluster is only utilized when builds are actively running, leaving resources available for other cluster tasks such as batch processing jobs. Kubernetes Engine leverages the Google global load balancer to route web traffic to your instance. The load balancer handles SSL termination, and provides a global IP address that routes users to your web front end on one of the fastest paths from the point of presence closest to your users through the Google backbone network.
Use Helm to deploy Jenkins from the Charts repository. Helm is a package manager you can use to configure and deploy Kubernetes apps. The following image describes the architecture for deploying Jenkins in a multi-node Kubernetes cluster.
Deploy the Jenkins master into a separate namespace in the Kubernetes cluster. Namespaces allow for creating quotas for the Jenkins deployment as well as logically separating Jenkins from other deployments within the cluster.
Jenkins provides two services that the cluster needs access to. Deploy these services separately so they can be individually managed and named. An externally-exposed NodePort service on port that allows pods and external users to access the Jenkins user interface. This type of service can be load balanced by an HTTP load balancer. An internal, private ClusterIP service on port that the Jenkins executors use to communicate with the Jenkins master from inside the cluster.
Deploy the Jenkins master as a deployment with a replica count of 1. This ensures that there is a single Jenkins master running in the cluster at all times. If the Jenkins master pod dies or the node that it is running on shuts down, Kubernetes restarts the pod elsewhere in the cluster. It's important to set requests and limits as part of the Helm deployment, so that the container is guaranteed a certain amount of CPU and memory resources inside the cluster before being scheduled.
Otherwise, your master could go down due to CPU or memory starvation.
