Atomist Announces Delivery to Kubernetes With Its Open Source SDM, adds GitLab Support
Atomist, the software delivery automation company, today announced the ability for developers to now deliver to Kubernetes using the open source Software Delivery Machine (SDM) in local mode. SDM local is completely open source and now supports delivery to Kubernetes, whether a single-node cluster on a laptop using minikube or a fully-managed Kubernetes service.

"We added Atomist support for deployment to Kubernetes earlier this year, but we wanted developers to be able to deploy with SDM local on their own, even for their own personal projects," said CEO and Atomist Co-founder Rod Johnson. "It's just so easy to deliver software with an SDM that developers want to use it everywhere. So we added support to SDM local, and now developers can use Kubernetes on their laptop prototype code just as easily as a full-blown production cluster."

If a project has a Dockerfile, SDM local automatically detects the parameters it needs to set up deployment with no developer intervention required. Developers can transparently move from an isolated laptop-only minkube setup to virtually any Kubernetes environment. SDM enables developers to deploy to Kubernetes from the SDM as goals that are fulfilled by an agent in the cluster.

The ability to deliver to Kubernetes using SDM local ushers in a modern and powerful yet simple approach to delivery, enabling people to entirely bypass the drudgery of complex and outdated CI/CD tools. Even the smallest project can now benefit from the robust, modern automation of an SDM. SDM Extension Packs are simple to add, and done in code, enabling complete delivery, from push to deploy, without the toil of endless configuration.

"Developers tell us they can't go back to working with outdated CI/CD tools after using SDM," said Johnson. "It's that compelling and we want to make it available to all developers, everywhere they need it."

SDM 1.1.0, released today, adds support for GitLab. Now users can connect SDM to GitLab to trigger goals from Git events emitted by GitLab, similar to the existing SDM support for GitHub and Bitbucket.

SDM is fully open source and available at
