Kubernetes lets you manage containerized applications on a cluster of nodes. If you need to deploy and scale your application on the fly without consuming more resources that required, that’s a solution for you.
Buddy lets you automate the whole delivery process to one git push to your repo. And these are the benefits:
- you don’t have to enter the commands manually every time
- you get precise feedback in case there’s an error in .yml files
- you don’t need a DevOps specialist around to update your application
- you can expand your delivery pipeline with builds and tests before the deployment
The main objective of this article is to tell you how to do that in a series of a few simple steps.
