Continuous Deployment to Kubernetes with Spinnaker

Docker Continuous delivery Containers Continuous deployment


Spinnaker ( is an open-source, multi-cloud Continuous Delivery tool developed by Netflix, Google, Microsoft and others. Among others, it's used by Netflix to handle over 4,000 deployments a day, and by Waze to manage their multi-cloud (AWS + GCP) infrastructure.

Google has collaborated closely with Netflix to add first-class support for deploying Docker containers to Kubernetes. This integration allows you to easily build and codify delivery pipelines that take Docker containers running on your laptop to a production Kubernetes cluster.

In this talk we'll go through setting up pipelines that demonstrate best-practice deployments to production of Docker containers using Kubernetes and Spinnaker. This will involve picking appropriate deployment strategies, configuring rollback mechanisms, deploying integration test environments, and more.
