Overall Satisfaction with Jenkins

[We're] Using Jenkins for CI/CD automation and enforcing quality gates.
  • Rich plugin ecosystem
  • Infinitely extendable via custom configuration
  • Scalable thru multi node architecture
  • First-class support for docker containers
  • More modern runtime, without the Java overhead
  • Better isolation for plugins via containers
  • Improved CICD flow
  • Catch regressions earlier
  • Prevent production outages via shift-left promotion checks
Often plugin incompatibilities break the whole UI.
Forum posts are often unresponsed to for years.
We went with drone.io ultimately for its first class support for container based workloads.
The industry workhorse due to its swiss-army-knife abilities, but lacks in some modern features like first-class support for docker containers.
