Armory helps organizations automate a golden path to production by extending open-source Spinnaker with proprietary features and enterprise support. We are excited to announce a new opportunity: Value Stream Mapping (VSM) discovery sessions with customers and prospects. These discovery sessions will help design optimal CI/CD pipelines.

We built a Terraform integration into Armory Spinnaker. With this native integration you can easily execute Terraform files and pass the output to other stages in the same pipeline. If you have a Terraform template configured with Output Values, then you can use the Output stage to parse the output and add it to your […]
We built a Terraform integration into Armory Spinnaker. With this native integration you can easily execute Terraform files and pass the output to other stages in the same pipeline. See full integration description here. Here’s the demo showing how the integration works: We’d love to hear your ideas and feedback @ http://go.Armory.io/ideas 1/9/19 Update: Based […]
Successful software delivery involves a combination of fast feedback from development through production, quick cycles that integrate production knowledge into the next release, and continuous improvements to the entire pipeline.

This post will help you choose the best fit for your organization by identifying the use cases for each. This […]
We are rapid-prototyping a Consul Stage in Armory Spinnaker, which is at the Core of Armory’s Platform. With this native integration you can store any properties found in the pipeline context as key values in your Consul cluster. This is particularly useful uf you are using a Terraform stage to create infrastructure your application will […]
Many teams are pushing for everything-as-code. Armory’s new Pipelines as Code feature provides a way to define application deployment pipelines through code instead of configuring a running Spinnaker instance via the user interface. This has been one of the most requested features to build into Armory’s Platform. Defining pipelines as code in your source control […]
