- Similar to any other automation, we get consistent results once we have automation in place.
- It speeds up the development process.
- You can produce the same result by following the same steps, so there is less of a change that it will work sometimes and not work other times.
What is required to automate?
Dockerfile – Docker file contains the steps to produce the Docker image. These steps include things like: what base image, if other installations are required, installing your app etc.
Choosing a Global Software Development Partner to Accelerate Your Digital Strategy
To be successful and outpace the competition, you need a software development partner that excels in exactly the type of digital projects you are now faced with accelerating, and in the most cost effective and optimized way possible.
Depending on the requirements, we use an existing image to build a new image such as MyAppV1, MyAppV2 etc.
Any CI/CD tool like Jenkins – Tools like Jenkins can help you schedule your task, send notifications, run tasks from script etc.
Automated test suite – Run some tests to make sure your Docker image is really useful or does what we intended to do.
Docker registry – Once the Docker Image looks good, we can upload it to the Docker registry so that it can be used by others.
