Modern software development is fast, continuous, and automated. Today, by research company Statista’s count, 88% of organizations are using Agile methods and Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery (CI/CD). Yet there remains one major stumbling block: Moving a freshly minted program from a CI pipeline to delivery to a cloud or other service provider. That’s where DevOps company CircleCI comes in with a new suite of orb integrations with 20 partners such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud, Salesforce, and others. These enable developers to automate remote deployments in minutes from their CI/CD pipeline.
Orbs are CircleCI packages that fit into the end of the CI/CD software delivery automation workflows. They are “parameterizable” packages that condense commands, executors, and jobs into single, reusable lines of code. Now, in partnership with numerous cloud and service providers, the new orbs help automate deployments. It can take hours to write integrations to deploy to services such as AWS Elastic Container Service (ECS), AWS Serverless, or Google Cloud Run. Deployment orbs allow developers to deploy applications in minutes using a pre-packaged configuration.
