Tekton on IBM Cloud How to run Tekton Run Tekton using IBM Cloud

Create Kubernetes-native CI/CD pipelines with maximum speed and flexibility

What is Tekton?

Tekton is an open-source, vendor-neutral framework for creating continuous integration and delivery (CI/CD) systems, governed by the Continuous Delivery Foundation (CDF) (link resides outside IBM). As a Kubernetes-native framework, Tekton helps to modernize continuous delivery by providing industry specifications for pipelines, workflows, and other building blocks — making deployment across multiple cloud providers or hybrid environments faster and easier.

IBM provides a seamlessly managed CI/CD experience with Tekton pipelines in IBM Cloud® Continuous Delivery toolchains, so you can deliver cloud-native applications across multiple cloud providers or on-premises systems, monitored by an integrated dashboard.

How to manage multiple Delivery Pipelines with Tekton
Tekton features Easier, faster app deployment
Automated processes ensure consistency and reduce errors. Create cloud-native pipelines quickly across multiple cloud providers or hybrid environments.
Shared pipelines reduce complexity
Open-source components help standardize CI/CD tooling and processes across developers, projects and organizations, reducing rework and speeding development.
Runs on any Kubernetes environment
As a true open source solution, Tekton enables the creation of continuous delivery pipelines to deploy apps to any Kubernetes environment.
Kubernetes-native for agility and control

Tekton pipelines run on Kubernetes, use Kubernetes clusters as a first class type, and use containers as their building blocks.

Serverless for greater efficiency

Use cloud resources only when needed to execute the pipeline tasks, which helps to reduce costs and to enhance development team control.
