Continuous delivery software provider Armory announced the release of Armory Minnaker, a complete Spinnaker installation designed to enable quick software deployments by leveraging K3s Kubernetes distribution and Armory’s Kubernetes Operator. Spinnaker is Armory’s continuous delivery solution open sourced by Google and Netflix to help companies deploy to multiple clouds. Minnaker automatically handles authentication, security such as SSL/TLS, namespaces, and custom resources in Kubernetes.
The goal of continuous delivery is to remove cognitive load from the developer — they shouldn’t care about what cluster, what cloud, what region — they just want to be able to commit their code and know that it is running and being interacted with as expected,” said Isaac Mosquera, the CTO of Armory.
Now, with Minnaker, our users can get right to the value of Spinnaker, as well as Armory’s enterprise features that will help them automate their software deployment and ship code faster. Armory also created pre-built DevOps pipelines to help new users get a sense of the platform. These tools can be integrated into DevOps toolchains, such as continuous integration (CI) systems, Git repositories, security tools, and targets for software distribution.
