The problem

When it comes to running a stateful application in a cloud-native environment like Kubernetes, it usually requires significant refactoring or additional automation handling lifecycle-management activities to make configuration fully operational.

Kubernetes brings declarative configuration, autoscaling, self-healing, and other capabilities natively supported by the platform that the application can leverage. However, with this power and flexibility, there comes a need for a little bit of an extra engineering effort.

For example, Jenkins is a stateful application that heavily relies on XML configuration files and is not designed to run in scalable environments without integration with the Kubernetes runtime. It makes it difficult for users to navigate and use this technology, especially at scale within large organizations. This often leads to some manual work and likely duplication of effort within your organization.

Our solution – cloud-native CI/CD platform

Our Operator Service for Jenkins is a cloud-native CI/CD platform built on top of Jenkins and Kubernetes. In principle, customers should be able to use the product on any public cloud platform like Azure, AWS, RedHat Marketplace (OpenShift), as well as support self-hosted offerings.

We wanted to put human operational knowledge into software operators by focusing on reducing day one activities related to installing, patching and manual work within the dev tooling space.
