Armory provides enterprise version of Spinnaker, open source continuous delivery multi-cloud project housed under CD Foundation

SAN FRANCISCO, April 13, 2021 – The Continuous Delivery Foundation (CDF), the open-source software foundation that seeks to improve the world’s capacity to deliver software with security and speed, today announced that Armory has joined the CDF as a premier member. Armory adds enterprise-grade proprietary features and support to the open-source Spinnaker project under the CDF. 

Spinnaker is a free and open-source multi-cloud continuous delivery software platform originally developed by Netflix and extended by Google. It is designed to work with Kubernetes, Google Cloud Platform, AWS, Microsoft Azure and Oracle Cloud. It has released hundreds of thousands of changes into production at Netflix and many other industry-leading companies like Adobe, Airbnb, Cisco, Grubhub, The Home Depot, JPMorgan Chase, Salesforce, Sony PlayStation, and Target.

Armory joins CDF premier members CircleCI, CloudBees, Fujitsu, Google, Huawei, IBM, JFrog, Netflix, and Salesforce in working together to make continuous delivery tools and processes as accessible and reliable as possible and  grow the overall ecosystem. Armory has been a General member since 2019.

“We are moving up to Premier membership because the CD Foundation is the right governance model for continuous delivery software in general and Spinnaker specifically. This strong foundation directly benefits development teams by continuing to improve and strengthen the Spinnaker community. And with Armory providing needed enterprise-grade features and support, development teams can ship better software, faster,” said Daniel R. Odio, co-founder and CEO of Armory. “The CD Foundation is the exact right organization to help steer the course of development of Spinnaker, and we are enthusiastic about increasing our leadership role as part of the CDF.”

Open source technologies such as Jenkins, Jenkins X, Spinnaker, Tekton, Screwdriver and Ortelius, which the CDF hosts, help development teams from companies of all sizes and industries improve their speed and productivity when creating cloud-native, legacy infrastructure, mobile, IoT, and bare-metal applications.

“Armory has been a part of CDF since the beginning, and this move to increase its participation in CDF is excellent for its customers, for CDF, and the broader continuous delivery software ecosystem,” said Tracy Miranda, Continuous Delivery Foundation Executive Director. “We know Armory well, and we’re thrilled to be working even more closely as we help enterprises worldwide accelerate the adoption of continuous delivery technologies and best practices as quickly and easily as possible.”

Armory provides a collaborative software delivery platform with Spinnaker at its core. Amory’s enterprise-grade version of Spinnaker adds enterprise-grade features that make software delivery continuous, collaborative, scalable, and safe. Armory is a top contributor to the Spinnaker open source project.

About cdCon (June 23-24, 2021)

Join Continuous Delivery leaders, industry icons, practitioners, and open source developers for a two-day virtual experience as we improve the world’s capacity to deliver software with security and speed. cdCon is the annual event by the Continuous Delivery Foundation that brings together technology teams, enterprise leadership and open source communities to drive the future of software delivery. 

This year’s sessions are designed for 3 different types of audiences:

  • Technology Teams: geared towards application developers, infra folks, DevOps engineers, security professionals, testers and any other practitioners involved with delivering software.
  • Enterprise Leadership: for senior leaders and decision-makers from organizations interested in measuring DevOps, scaling, transformation, security, FinOps, and developer productivity. 
  • Open Source Communities: tailored for open-source core contributors and maintainers running and growing CDF projects and special interest groups, as well as folks looking to get involved with open source for the first time. This includes Jenkins, Spinnaker, Tekton, Jenkins X and other CDF communities. 

cdCon is a chance for our global community to come together to meet peers, share best practices and ideas, learn from each other and hear about the latest trends in software delivery.
