The Jenkins infrastructure team has extended the reach of the ci.jenkins.io agents. We’re grateful that DigitalOcean has donated $2760 to the Jenkins project. The donation has allowed us to run jobs from ci.jenkins.io on an additional cluster hosted by DigitalOcean.
The DigitalOcean user interface makes it easy to see our progress applying the DigitalOcean donation to continuous integration jobs for the Jenkins project.
We track our budget and our droplets from easy to use web pages that are part of the DigitalOcean platform.
The DigitalOcean managed Kubernetes cluster provides automated upgrades. Upgrades happen weekly and keep the infrastructure current with the latest capabilities.
We’ve seen smooth and effective resource allocation and deallocation on DigitalOcean as the load increases and decreases.
Step by step DigitalOcean installation instructions are available from the "How to install Jenkins" tutorials on the DigitalOcean community site.
