Modev, organizers of Spinnaker Summit 2019, today announced that global technology leaders including Netflix, Google Cloud Platform, Armory, OpsMX, Adobe, Kublr, Sumo Logic, xMatters and Sonatype have signed on as sponsors for this year’s event, taking place November 15 – 17, 2019, at the Hard Rock Hotel in San Diego, California.
The highly anticipated Spinnaker Summit is an annual forum that convenes Spinnaker users, and software delivery engineering leaders from around the world under a single roof, each of whom is committed to advancing the development and adoption of the fast-growing continuous delivery platform.
Created by Netflix, Spinnaker is an open source, multi-cloud continuous delivery platform for releasing software changes with high velocity and confidence. Also used by Google, Armory, Adobe, Waze, and other digital leaders, Spinnaker combines a powerful and flexible pipeline management system with integrations to the major cloud providers; it has been battle-tested in production by hundreds of teams over millions of deployments.
For companies like Waze that host production in multi-cloud environments, Spinnaker allows them to release new features and bug fixes to users as quickly as possible while keeping deployments and rollbacks simple, easy and reliable, according to a public case study. Spinnaker abstracts many of the particulars of each cloud provider, allowing developers to focus on making Waze even better for users instead of concerning themselves with the low-level details of multiple cloud providers.
The emergence of venture-backed innovators like Spinnaker Summit sponsor, OpsMx, accelerates continuous software delivery with machine learning, leveraging best practices and know-how of large-scale Spinnaker deployments. For enterprises to harness the full power of the open source platform, they need access to lifecycle management, on-boarding, enterprise integration services, and 24/7 support. OpsMx integrates with Spinnaker to provide a best-in-class solution for safer and speedier Canary, Blue-Green, Rolling Update (Docker) deployments.
Netflix Director of Delivery Engineering, Andy Glover, who will deliver the opening keynote address, commented in a recent blog that, “Continuous Delivery powers innovation at Netflix.” Joining Glover as featured speakers at Spinnaker Summit 2019 are industry experts including Pinterest Software Engineer, Rainie Li; Airbnb Software Engineer, Brian Wolfe; JPMorgan Chase Co. Associate Technology Analyst, Vaidyalingam Ramalingam; AWS Principal Technologist, Alolita Sharma; and Google Software Engineers, Eric Zimanyi and Maggie Neterval.
“Spinnaker Summit is a welcoming event where attendees can learn firsthand from leading enterprises about best practices for software delivery leveraging Spinnaker and accelerating go-to-market efforts,” said Modev CEO, Pete Erickson. “This year’s sponsors and speakers have achieved significant levels of performance and we are honored to provide a platform for them to showcase the latest on continuous delivery leveraging Spinnaker.”
The conference agenda features an impressive lineup of keynote presentations and breakout sessions organized across a variety of topics including product deep-dives, case studies and more. On November 15, Armory will host “Spinnaker 101” and “Spinnaker 102,” comprehensive educational sessions that will cover everything from Spinnaker basics to unlocking its full power.
