Continuous Integration, Delivery, and Regression
Here at Ampere we fully believe in full automation and continuous best practices for all of our development activities. To meet our goals of a fully automated software environment we built a system called CIDR: Continuous Integration, Delivery, and Regression.
CIDR is a framework composed of industry-best tools sitting on top of a robust database and analysis layer. This is all built using Python, Django, Postgres, serverless cloud environments, and more. We use CIDR to ensure that all of our systems and software meet the rigorous quality needs of the modern data center.
Our CIDR data analysis tools are purpose-built to handle both functional and performance tests, giving us a complete picture of how our software performs on real hardware.
The generalized workflow of a CIDR run can be summarized in these stages:
Results and data that you see in the CI/CD section of this portal are all collected using CIDR infrastructure with Ampere bare-metal at its core.
