Jenkins Is Getting Old - and We Need an Alternative. By far, Jenkins is the most adopted tool for continuous integration, owning nearly 50% of the market share. It has excellent community support, like no other Jenkins alternative. Why we should look for Jenkins alternatives?
By far, Jenkins is the most adopted tool for continuous integration, owning nearly 50% of the market share. As so many developers are using it, it has excellent community support, like no other Jenkins alternative. With that, it has more than 1,500 plugins available for continuous integration and delivery purposes.
We love and respect Jenkins. After all, it’s the first tool we encountered at the beginning of our automation careers. But as things are rapidly changing in the automation field, Jenkins is left behind with its old approach. Even though many developers and companies are using it, most of them aren’t happy with it. Having used it ourselves on previous projects, we quickly became frustrated by its lack of functionality,** numerous maintenance issues, dependencies,** and scaling problems.
We decided to investigate if other developers face the same problems and quickly saw the need to create a tool ourselves. We asked some developers at last year’s AWS Summit in Berlin about this. Most of them told us that they chose Jenkins because it’s free in the first place. However, many of them expressed interest in trying to use some other Jenkins alternative.
When using Jenkins, teams tend to make more mistakes with the delivery and end up with broken pipelines. As a result, they implement inefficient practices, can’t adopt agility well, and lose the flexibility to innovate. When problems come up, you instantly need an expert that will resolve the issues to unblock developers.
Microtica is a Jenkins alternative with modern DevOps in its foundations. Say goodbye to plugins and dependencies, late maintenance nights, backup, scaling, patching issues.
DevOps automation tools help increase your application development agility and speed up delivery for software changes.
DevOps and Cloud computing are joined at the hip, now that fact is well appreciated by the organizations that engaged in SaaS cloud and developed applications in the Cloud. During the COVID crisis period, most of the organizations have started using cloud computing services and implementing a cloud-first strategy to establish their remote operations. Similarly, the extended DevOps strategy will make the development process more agile with automated test cases.
In this article, look at different ways to test microservices and how you can have a suitable testing strategy to begin with.
On Wednesday, March 11, 2020, I conducted the webinar titled “Monitoring & Orchestrating Your Microservices Landscape using Workflow Automation”. Not only was I overwhelmed by the number of attendees, but we also got a huge list of interesting questions before and especially during the webinar. Some of them were answered, but a lot of them were not. I want to answer all open questions in this series of seven blog posts. Today I am posting the final two in the series.
