stability and easo of multi-cloud multi-platform deployment.
Robustness. Ease for debugging.
What do you dislike?
Documentation, Community docs repo. The information is scattered and is hard to find a procedure to achieve something specific.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Deploy to Sandbox, Test, Branch, QA, Systest, Sectest, Staging and PROD hotfix quickly.
Follow a CI/CD to deploy to AWS ECS Fargate.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Join the slack community
read the docs first
read the blogs in medium
watch vids from the spinnaker summit to grasp the runtime behaviour of the system

One click deployments using Spinnaker

  • September 27, 2019
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
You can setup pipelines for different processes.. e.g. one pipeline can be configured just to release artifacts while another will pickup the released artifacts and deploy it to any domain that is configured. Each pipeline is configurable with steps that can be defined and linked to jenkins jobs that can either cut artifacts, create docker images, deploy docker images to domains etc..
What do you dislike?
For manual judgement steps which need to be triggered manually, if there are multiple pipelines waiting in that phase, it is not possible to move them forward until the others are dismissed. Workflow Steps are unidirectional so there is no going back in case anything fails or needs a change.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
We used to release everything manually and deploy using chef which was causing bottlenecks. We wanted to do a one click deployment functionality which are fast and do not require constant supervision.

Spinnaker among other delivery platforms

  • March 20, 2019
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
It supports incremental deployments and supports “green/blue” deployments which are crucial in Agile methodology. Due to cloud deployments, it is easy to manage and configure deployment pipelines.
The best part is easy creation and adjustment of deployment pipelines using a GUI interface.
What do you dislike?
It does not have plugins options like in Jenkins which makes it hard to work with. Secondly, It is not comfortable in managing SCM, thirdly, we sometimes struggle in running tests and building packages. Spinnaker API is more popular than the Spinnaker pipeline to deploy to AWS.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Initially, it was difficult in the client environment to deploy anything as lots of process needs to be followed, but by CI CD, and using Spinnaker deployments are smooth, more than 200+ deployments have been completed in last 6 months. The project is on track and will finish sooner than expected.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Spinnaker helps in deploying a cloud-based delivery model. It makes easier due to application, cluster, and server groups understanding. Overall, it is still grooming and hopefully, Netflix will provide more changes to it.
Nonetheless, it is still an amazing product to try out.

  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
It combines a powerful and flexible pipeline management system with integrations to the major cloud providers.It creates deployment pipelines that run integration and system tests, spin up and down server groups, and monitor the rollouts.
What do you dislike?
Need to set up in a web UI, so it's little bit hard for setup.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
To define a continuous delivery flow within the pipeline, which allows us to complete the whole deployment including the approval flow—using one tool

Fantastic cloud-agnostic deployment tool

  • January 23, 2019
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
The ability to fully control and deploy the whole infrastructure. Very, very customizable pipelines. Full overview of your infrastructure, logs for all the changes. Easy reverts of the failed deployments, all the AWS features are fully supported.
What do you dislike?
It's really hard to setup and configure from scratch, especially, if you have some tricky and specific setup.
Knowledge base is still very small and missing a lot of important things, so you need to try a lot to find your perfect setup. But, if you've configured it once, it will just work in the perfect manner for years.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
We wanted to have the single-point deployment tool for the very specific and multi-account setup, which will allow us to control everything. We've got it and after the hard work to set it up, having fun every day.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
You need to spend a lot of time once to install and configure everything and to find the way to automatically change the applications and pipelines, but when you will finish with it, you will just have fun and your life will become much easier.

Awesome Deployment tool for the the Cloud age!

  • January 18, 2019
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
This continuous deployment tool treats cloud and containers as first-class problems. It integrates very well with many cloud as well as container orchestration platforms such as GCP, AWS and my favorite, Kubernetes!

Pros:
- Integrates with many "providers" out of the box
- Treats containers as first-class problem
- Open source and fast-growing community
What do you dislike?
Spinnaker is developing quickly and some features might deprecate as the platform grows. My biggest complaint is that it lacks in Pipeline as a Code area, although there are some beta features being developed.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Continuous deployment of Kubernetes manifests to Kubernetes platform.
