We have created a Azure Container Service (ACS) plugin for Jenkins, so that no matter which ACS orchestrator you have chosen, you can continuously deploy to that cluster from Jenkins with the same, simple plugin.
Azure Container Service optimizes the configuration of popular open-source tools and technologies specifically for Azure. You get an open solution that offers portability for both your containers and your application configuration. You select the size, number of hosts, and choice of orchestrator tools (Docker Swarm, Kubernetes or DC/OS) – Container Service handles everything else.
When we were working on the ACS plugin, we surveyed the Jenkins landscape and couldn’t find a plugin that allowed native continuous deployment from Jenkins to Kubernetes. So we decided to create one, as we think it would be extremely valuable to both the Jenkins and Kubernetes communities. Our ACS plugin uses this plugin as a dependency for Kubernetes support.[“Source-linux”]
