CIINABOX , pronounced 'siin a box', is a standardised and automated implementation of base2’s CI implementation. Using cloudformation and chef cookbooks, a standard “CIINABOX” tools environment can be deployed within a client's AWS development account. The deployment of CIINABOX requires very little configuration, and very little time.

On average, CIINABOX saves our clients up to 2 weeks of development configuration.

You have the option of using ECS (Elastic Container Service) or just containers and be up and running in minutes. It is a completely scripted build environment.

CIINABOX bootstraps everything you need to get started with Continuous Integration including a Chef Server and a Jenkins Server.

More in less time

  • Accelerate Develop, Test and Deploy faster by spending less time configuring the tools
  • Integrate Git, AWS and Pagerduty with minimal configuration
  • Automate your deployment process in less time

Automated CI pipelines

Employing continuous integration in application and infrastructure development provides a fast feedback loop, reduced code conflicts and constant availability of the current build; this enables rapid development and delivery. Automating this process can improve code compliance by incorporating testing in the CI pipeline. Development productivity can be increased by offloading the build, deployment and testing processes otherwise carried out by developers.

CI requirements

Several tools are required to facilitate and automate a continuous integration practice. These tools should be accessible to development and production environments, while minimising the security risks associated with this access. Independent infrastructure resources are required to achieve this environment isolation.

Leverages base2's standard CI implementation

Our standard CI suite currently consists of a jenkins instance (for automation) and a chef server (for configuration management and provisioning). These tools are standard within the industry, and are designed to be generic and customisable for most use cases.

Get Supported

Enterprise support gives you the expertise in continuous integration and continuous deployment with our full technical support to keep on moving fast with a trusted edition. You also have the benefit of a fully managed edition at your disposal.

Having the right CI and CD tools makes the things that should work, actually work. And it makes your Devs and Ops more productive.
