Oracle Joins Continuous Delivery Foundation

Welcome! Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) has joined the CDF!

Oracle recently announced Jenkins and GitLab have added support for the new Arm-based OCI Ampere A1 Compute instances. Now developers can build and deploy their applications using both high-performance x86 and Arm architectures on OCI. CI/CD support for the Ampere A1 Compute platform will enable developers to accelerate their efforts to build cloud native applications on the AArch64 architecture.

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) provides a platform of cloud services that enable you to build and run a wide range of applications in a highly available, consistently high-performance environment. The technologies provided by OCI give developers and IT broad support for running existing workloads as well as creating cloud-native applications. The platform offers real-time elasticity for enterprise applications by combining Oracle’s autonomous services, integrated security, and serverless compute.

“CI/CD is the key to speed and agility for developers. It enables developers to deliver application code faster and with fewer defects and is essential when transforming from waterfall to agile.  We’re excited to build on our involvement in the Linux Foundation and CNCF to support the growth and evolution of [open source] continuous delivery models and best practices.” said Dan Gerrity, Senior Vice President of Developer Services, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. “Oracle supports CDF’s mission, the open-source projects within the CDF and the collaboration among top developers, end users, and vendors.”

“Support for Jenkins on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is a great example of Oracle’s commitment to open-source projects and the developer community. Oracle provides excellent technology solutions to help their customers succeed and we’re excited to see Oracle join the CDF,” said Tracy Miranda, Continuous Delivery Foundation Executive Director. “Jenkins and Oracle Cloud Infrastructure will be an extremely powerful combination for organizations needing continuous integration and software automation support in an Arm environment.”

The growing CDF membership is led by premier members Armory, CircleCI, CloudBees, Fujitsu, Google, Huawei, JFrog, and Netflix, working together to make continuous delivery tools and processes as accessible and reliable as possible and grow the overall ecosystem. With Oracle joining CDF and committing to further strengthen the open-source ecosystem, we believe developers will have even more choice and have access to the new Ampere A1 Compute instances. Developers can easily get access and start developing on Ampere A1 and Intel X86 compute instances using the generous capacity provided in Oracle Cloud Free Tier. Oracle offers 4 A1 OCPUs and 24GB Memory as Always Free Arm resources as part of the free tier to help developers get easy access to compute resources.

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.
