Posted February 2, 2020 755 views


I’m a software engineering student, I’m starting an internship for developing a node JS / react web application. So I want to use microservices and new technologies.

What are the hardware requirements to set up a CI/CD pipeline including some tools : Jenkins, sonarqube, Docker, Kubernetes, Helm etc.. and what is the best tools for my case ?

And does it cost much ?

Best regards

Hi @xgeek95,

IF you are going to use them just for testing and small projects, you can always use the smallest droplet and gradually update it if you wish.

Additionally, you might want to look at this page - . It’s DigitalOcean’s managed Kubernetes service. Decide if you wish to have control over everything or have DigitalOcean help out with that.

Regarding Docker, there is a pretty good tutorial again on DigitalOcean which should help you with your application -

Lastly, give it this tutorial a read -
It should include almost everything you’ll need.

Docker is an application that simplifies the process of managing application processes in containers. In this tutorial, you'll install and use Docker Community Edition (CE) on Ubuntu 18.04. You'll install Docker itself, work with containers and images, and push an image to a Docker Repository.
