Google Cloud makes it easier to set up continuous delivery with Spinnaker


GoogleCloud todayannouncedSpinnaker forGoogle Cloud Platform, a new solution that makes it easier to install and run theSpinnaker continuous delivery (CD) serviceon Google’s cloud.

Spinnaker was created insideNetflixand is now jointly developed by Netflix and Google. Netflix open-sourced it back in 2015 and over the course of the last few years, it became theopen-source CD platform of choicefor many enterprises. Today, companies like Adobe, Box, Cisco, Daimler, Samsung and others use it to speed up their development process.

With Spinnaker forGoogle Cloud Platform,which runs on the GoogleKubernetesEngine, Google is making the install process for the service as easy as a few clicks. Once up and running, the Spinnaker install includes all of the core tools, as well as Deck, the user interface for the service. Users pay for the resources used by the Google Kubernetes Engine, as well as Cloud Memorystore for Redis, Google Cloud Load Balancing and potentially other resources they use in the Google Cloud.

The company has pre-configured Spinnaker for testing and deploying code on Google Kubernetes Engine, Compute Engine and App Engine, though it will also work with any other public or on-prem cloud. It’s also integrated withCloud Build, Google’s recently launched continuous integration service and features support for automatic backups and integrated auditing and monitoring with Google’s Stackdriver.

“We want to make sure that the solution is great both for developers and DevOps or SRE teams,” says Matt Duftler, Tech Lead for Google’s Spinnaker effort, in today’s announcement. “Developers want to get moving fast with the minimum of overhead.
