Fast, safe, repeatable deployments for every Enterprise
Spinnaker is an open source, multi-cloud continuous delivery platform for releasing software changes with high velocity and confidence.
Created at Netflix, it has been battle-tested in production by hundreds of teams over millions of deployments. It combines a powerful and flexible pipeline management system with integrations to the major cloud providers.
Deploy across multiple cloud providers including Amazon 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.
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.
Join a community that includes Netflix, Google, Microsoft, Veritas, Target, Kenzan, Schibsted, and many others, actively working to maintain and improve Spinnaker.
Gate is the API gateway. The Spinnaker UI and all api callers communicate with Spinnaker via Gate.
Orca is the orchestration engine. It handles all ad-hoc operations and pipelines. Read more on the Orca Service Overview.
Clouddriver is responsible for all mutating calls to the cloud providers and for indexing/caching all deployed resources.
Front50 is used to persist the metadata of applications, pipelines, projects and notifications.
Rosco is the bakery. It produces immutable VM images (or image templates) for various cloud providers. It is used to produce machine images (for example GCE images, AWS AMIs, Azure VM images). It currently wraps packer, but will be expanded to support additional mechanisms for producing images.
Igor is used to trigger pipelines via continuous integration jobs in systems like Jenkins and Travis CI, and it allows Jenkins/Travis stages to be used in pipelines.
Echo is Spinnaker’s eventing bus. It supports sending notifications (e.g. Slack, email, SMS), and acts on incoming webhooks from services like Github.
Fiat is Spinnaker’s authorization service. It is used to query a user’s access permissions for accounts, applications and service accounts.
Kayenta provides automated canary analysis for Spinnaker.
Halyard is Spinnaker’s configuration service. Halyard manages the lifecycle of each of the above services. It only interacts with these services during Spinnaker startup, updates, and rollbacks.
