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, JenkinsX, 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.’
