Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery

Achieve Greater Reliability

A DevOps tenet, continuous integration, and continuous delivery, or CI/CD, is a code delivery method that helps enterprises achieve greater release consistency and reliability. As developers increase the frequency and quality of their releases, they create a virtuous cycle of greater innovation and faster time to market of new products and services.

However, getting to this point can be challenging. According to a recent GitLab survey, 55% of enterprises have no continuous delivery anywhere in their organization. Yet, those who do continuously deploy code report that project and product managers are 25% more likely to have better insight into developer capacity during the planning stages, compared with organizations that deploy between once per month and once every 6 months. 


Flux7 helps enterprises work through the most challenging aspects of collaboration and DevOps automation to establish successful CI/CD pipelines that save developers from unnecessary manual, error-prone deployment work and create higher quality software, thus delivering on customer expectations and business goals.

Building a Continuous Delivery Pipeline

Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) are often cited as pillars of successful DevOps. To establish and optimize the CI/CD development model and reap the benefits, companies need to automate their build, integration and testing processes. This requires architecting CI/CD well, which when combined effectively, operates as a successful cornerstone of DevOps and provides a myriad of bottom-line benefits.

WP Optimized Code Delivery Pipelines Flux7

Most CI/CD projects begin with an assessment for DevOps best practices and use Jenkins to build various pipelines for infrastructure provisioning, application, and service deployment. Flux7 strategy and skilled teams help enterprises adopt CI/CD in a variety of ways.  

Deploy DevOps Toolchains of Your Choice

Flux7 Build is our solution to support your toolchain. Standardized configurations come with all of the essential features enterprises need to build a customized DevOps toolchain. Or, work with us to create a custom solution for your favorite DevOps tool.

Create an Infrastructure Pipeline

Gain the benefits of Infrastructure as Code and remove manual activities of infrastructure provisioning and de-provisioning. Infrastructure pipelines automate the deployment of compute, autoscaling, load balancing, and Hadoop clusters, along with container services, security and monitoring, and auditing capabilities, reducing provisioning time to minutes.

Create an Application Pipeline

Establish CD/CD workflow, application & infrastructure deployment. Speed deployments and increase security with automation, increasing the ability to innovate while minimizing risk. Javascript and microservice applications can be deployed through CI/CD tooling.

Automate the Process from Commit to Test

Whether you are starting from scratch or looking for help to connect the last remaining CI/CD elements in your environment, Flux7 with its depth and breadth of DevOps toolchain experience can help. Continuous delivery tools like Jenkins are paired with reporting and testing solutions to provide a complete CI/CD pipeline solution.

Incorporate Serverless and Containers

Take advantage of serverless infrastructure for the deployment of applications.  Deploy applications using CI/CD container pipelines, use managed Kubernetes services for your preferred cloud platform.

Meet Evolving Customer Expectations & Business Goals

Meet customer expectations for constant updates that are seamlessly deployed without any impact to them. Help the business gain a competitive advantage through innovation at the speed of the market.

Flux7 CI/CD Customer Success Stories

Fortune 500 Manufacturer Adopts Flux7 Enterprise DevOps Framework as DevOps Onboarding Model

For a Fortune 500 enterprise, the Flux7 DevOps team set up an automated code delivery pipeline using CloudFormation, AWS CodeCommit, AWS CodePipeline and Jenkins. Developers use a Git flow methodology, and once they merge code to the master branch in CodeCommit, polling alerts of a new commit. 

Game Maker Pairs AWS, Docker & Kubernetes for Scalability, Efficiency

As part of an AWS migration, a game development firm wanted a best-in-class AWS continuous integration and Kubernetes solution with full CI/CD. In addition to a new Docker container microservices architecture, the Flux7 DevOps consulting team built a CI/CD pipeline and patterns for four initial games that were used as a model for future migration.

Enabling MicroServices with MicroAgility for Financial Services Market Leader

Flux7 created an environment that enabled a large financial services organization to embrace CI/CD, so that its microservices could be updated more frequently and more safely. The firm and Flux7 worked together to implement a unique build and deploy a system with Docker at its core, an on-premises code repository, and on-cloud build deployment. The most innovative component, the portable system for configuration management and code deploy uses AWS Code Deploy, S3, and a Docker registry that provides CD. 

Pair CI/CD and a Landing Zone for Greater Efficiency

Companies that want to increase their ability to deploy faster and increase uptime are using Landing Zones in AWS with Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery (CI/CD). With benefits for security, operations, development and the business, CI/CD helps developers deliver code more frequently and more reliably with the help of DevOps automation. In today’s article, we’ll take a look at the benefits of pairing a Landing Zone with CI/CD. Spoiler alert: together they multiply the business’s ability to grow efficiency, productivity, security and time to market.

CodePipeline Pipeline Execution History and DevOps Metrics

Building a continuous integration and continuous delivery pipeline is a goal of many enterprises as they look to increase their agility and speed time to market. More to the point, as part of a healthy DevOps environment, CI/CD pipelines deliver business value through automation that grows developer output and strategic contributions. For AWS-based DevOps environments, many enterprises look to AWS CodePipeline to help facilitate their CI/CD as it integrates easily with other AWS services — and a broad set of ecosystem tools — and provides a consistent set of quality checks for code.

A Primer: What is DevOps? And How Do Code, Config, CI/CD & Containers Relate

In 2013 Gene Kim, Kevin Behr and George Spafford published The Phoenix Project, a book that marries the concepts of manufacturing agility from Eliyahu Goldratt’s The Goal and relates them to IT. As they elucidate in the story, a new approach to IT is clearly needed and many organizations are embracing that change through the DevOps methodology.
