GitLab has made full CI/CD with Kubernetes a snap!
But what if you’re managing clusters on-prem?
Or perhaps Kubernetes feels like more than you need for a simple deployment or prototype?
In this talk, Tracey will show some simple ways to get a HashiCorp Nomad cluster up quickly, tied in to GitLab, and ready for deployment. Having been both the Kubernetes admin and Nomad admin at Archive.org Tracey will share some of her real-world experiences to highlight the similarities and differences when using each with GitLab CI/CD.
A demo will include showing how to create a simple generic nomad job template that substitutes in GitLab CI/CD variables to make nice job names and nice DNS names. The result will deploy and auto-version with each commit/push.
