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.

Flux7 strategy and skilled teams can help enterprises in a variety of ways.  

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.  Examples of How We help Customers Adopt CI/CD:

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

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. CodePipeline creates a CloudFormation ChangeSet, and queues it up for review by the Ops team. Once the Ops team approves the change set, CodePipeline triggers a CloudFormation stack update. This allows for very high full-stack agility while not losing central governance.


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.


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. The system is self-service for Development, giving developers greater control over the process, allowing them to quickly bring up new environments, testing against them, and easily starting over if need be. Further, as small independent units, the organization’s new microservices are quick to flow through the delivery pipeline, significantly increasing service delivery.
