Question and Answer with Ethan Rogers: Spinnaker and Kubernetes

Apr 3, 2018 by DROdio

Ethan Rogers is a build & release engineer, and also a very helpful member and Spinnaker expert in the OSS Spinnaker Community. Ethan swung by Armory HQ for a video with DROdio, CEO of Armory, and Ben, CPO of Armory to discuss:

  • What is Spinnaker? How’s it different from deploying software with Jenkins, Ansible, Chef, Puppet or other mutable configuration management technologies?
  • What makes Spinnaker special? Why do companies need it?
  • How does Spinnaker enable companies to better leverage Kubernetes? Why not just deploy directly with Kubernetes? What are the benefits afforded by Spinnaker?
  • And much more. Enjoy!
