Shippable Enhances Its Continuous Delivery Platform for Docker With Amazon EC2 Container Service and Container Registry Integration

Shippable has announced a native integration with Amazon EC2 Container Service (Amazon ECS) and Amazon EC2 Container Registry (Amazon ECR), the new fully-managed Docker registry announced by AWS at re:Invent 2015. With this integration, Shippable provides a pipeline to easily deploy Dockerized applications from any Git-based source control to Amazon ECS without having to write any special DevOps automation code.

Amazon ECS is a container service that allows customers to run Docker applications on a managed cluster of Amazon EC2 instances, while Amazon EC2 Container Registry makes it easy for developers to reliably store and deploy Docker container images at scale. Shippable provides the workflows around these services with its delivery pipeline, including the following key components:

  • Continuous Integration and Image Management -- For every code commit, Shippable will automatically test the changeset and generate a versioned Docker image ready to be stored in Amazon ECR and then deployed to Amazon ECS.
  • Deployment and Configuration Management -- Shippable provides a deployment platform that lets users orchestrate complex Dockerized application deployments into versioned environments on Amazon ECS without writing any DevOps automation code. Customers can manage application configurations for these environments and upgrade/rollback versions in a single click.

Customers can also automate functional testing against their environments on Amazon ECS and move application versions between environments as testing cycles are completed.

"The combination of the Amazon EC2 Container Service and the Amazon EC2 Container Registry streamlines Docker adoption on AWS," says Avi Cavale, CEO at Shippable. "We embrace AWS's strategy and are excited to provide our customers a pipeline for their Dockerized applications running on Amazon ECS."

Amazon ECS deployments using Shippable are available immediately. Shippable's integration with Amazon ECR will be available at the launch of the registry later this year. Shippable Continuous Integration (CI), which provides continuous integration and image generation, is available to all customers with a Shippable free or paid subscription (AWS usage fees apply). Shippable Formations, which enables deployments and configuration management, is available with a separate monthly subscription.
