Splunk Runs Its CI/CD and Test Infrastructure on Docker and Supports 20,000 Deployments Per Day


More demanding software testing requirements put increased pressure on the existing data center infrastructure. The team wanted to adopt DevOps practices, but needed a commercially supported solution for both Linux and Windows.


Splunk leverages Docker Enterprise as the foundation for their CI/CD and test infrastructure, integrating with Jenkins to automate performance tests.


New tests can be deployed in minutes rather than days. The Docker Enterprise platform at Splunk supports 2,000 concurrent containerized jobs and has increased average CPU utilization to 75 percent.
