We have almost 50 developers working with different technologies to develop, test and ship apps for our demanding clients. With multiple git pushes and merge requests per hour there is a need for fast and optimized flow. Automating the CI/CD with multiple technologies and clouds/other deployment targets is critical for us. This is how we use powerful Jenkins Pipeline with Shared Pipeline Library with Jenkins and Gitlab.

We have tested two MongoDB cluster solutions deployed on Google Cloud Platform: Google Launcher’s MongoDB cluster and our MongoDB cluster Docker container running on Google Container Engine.

We have tested two database-as-a-service solutions from two major players: Google Cloud SQL Second Generation, Amazon RDS for MySQL and official MariaDB Docker container running as a single instance without any replication on Google Container Engine. MariaDB was used in the test as a baseline, only to see if there is any significant performance overhead of replication and the difference between MySQL and MariaDB. What are the benchmark results?

When using Google Storage Buckets behind Cloudflare’s CDN, you will probably run into a few problems with the React Router, limited Bucket’s webserver, and https settings. Cloudflare also needs custom settings to serve the React app properly.
