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.

Spinnaker Cloud Deployment Tool

  • December 28, 2018
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
Relative ease of use tool for continuous deployment to AWS.
Open source with good support
I's a pretty complete solution.
Great tool for automating deployments as well as rollbacks in the event that something goes wrong.
It allows you to orchestrate multiple steps in the deployment cycle.
Works well with Jenkins.
What do you dislike?
Setup can be a nightmare.
It's not possible to build plugins to Spinnaker.
Having to recreate pipelines from scratch.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Continuous delivery to AWS.

Deploys AMI's in AWS as well as images in docker

  • December 13, 2018
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
Spinnaker enables you to deploy code pipelines into the cloud on with great flexibility.
What do you dislike?
Ironically, it is a nightmare to setup and configure. It is a total pet that requires the used of a purpose built installer.
The primary way for deploying software seems to be via manually created pipelines rather than code by infrastructure.
It is a little split brained in that it is made to make deployments in the cloud easy and reproducible, but spinnaker itself is not that way, and neither is the creation of the pipelines.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
It enables us to deploy AMI's on AWS EC2 instances via a CDO model.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Spend the time learning Halyard. It is a pain and, to me, feels like the wrong way to install a production system, but it is the supported and actively developed install path.

Spinnaker works well for large enterprise setup!

  • January 17, 2018
  • Review provided by G2

What do you like best?
First thing first - its an open source. We liked Its ability to package code , configs entirely in a single RPM. It helped us to propagate the same packaged RPM ( code + configs i.e. baked AMI ) to higher environments which epitomises the whole concept of 'code promotion' in an immutable env./infra.
What do you dislike?
You need skills to tweak it to your needs! :D
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
CD in cloud ( especially AWS )
Recommendations to others considering the product:
You may give it a shot! as it is open source.

Modern Pipelines for Modern Applications and Infratructure

  • October 13, 2017
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
Spinnaker makes it easy to coordinate my build and deployment processes on multiple clouds with the same interface. This helps to standardize how pipelines are created that move code to different environments while making the steps very transparent. The project has great opensource support and some companies providing enterprise capabilities as well. I also like the fact that user authentication and authorization is integrated for separation of concerns for manual adjudication of deployments and access to projects.
What do you dislike?
Spinnaker is still growing to support a larger user base than just Netflix and some features still need work. Pipelines as code to facilitate storing and reproducing pipelines is a much needed feature that would make standing up new pipelines much simpler. Spinnaker is composed off microservices which can make deploying and managing the platform difficult and require a lot of compute power to run. If your company is mature in its infrastructure capabilities than this tool makes sense but might not be right for smaller shops.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Separating and orchestrating build and deployment processes to achieve cohesive management of software rollouts to cloud and container environments. Spinnaker does a great job of providing a visual environment to view and manage CI and deployment steps for software in a cloud-native environment. I also like the integration with Kubernetes to deploy containerized applications.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Evaluate your ability to implement and support a platform that is fairly heavyweight composed of multiple components. Be clear that this is an "enterprise" level solution because it could be expensive to maintain for both compute and people resources. This solution requires a certain level of maturity around immutable infrastructure to truly take advantage but if you are there, this is the only solution of its kind.

Yet another deployment solution

  • May 17, 2016
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
Big plus for docker support. Also, deployable units can be JAR files as well.
Supports multiple cloud providers like AWS, Cloud Foundry, Google Cloud natively.
Can be triggered using github hook, manually using cron or from some other
pipeline. Could push update packages to existing instances to minimize wait time.
Has a nice ui that can resize, edit, delete server groups and load balancers.
What do you dislike?
Spinnaker has a good support for JVM based projects. Unfortunately, for projects
that require anything else, it escalates into a big headache. Also, we had some
deployment problems with AWS.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Not much, gave it a trial but had to choose another because of the severe limitations
of handling non-JVM projects. It integrates with several services (on paper) so that would have
saved us some time.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
If your use case consists of only JVM based projects, then spinnaker is good, even great.
Give it a go.
