Build your open source projects on IBM Power and IBM Z CPU architectures with Travis CI
Write once. Build and test. Deploy anywhere.
Build Open Source for IBM Enterprise Systems
We are excited to announce that Travis CI has launched enhancements to their build service which adds capability to do builds on IBM Power, IBM Z, and LinuxONE. Add one line of code to your build scripts to include support for IBM Power, IBM Z, or LinuxONE.
Build your open source projects on IBM Power and IBM Z CPU architectures
Travis CI recently introduced support for building open source software for multiple CPU architectures. On November 13, 2019, in partnership with Canonical, IBM Power, and IBM Z, they extended that capability beyond arm64 and amd64 to use the same Travis CI infrastructure to build on IBM Power and IBM Z architectures!
Travis CI on IBM Power Systems
In this blog, learn how to add a project to build automatically on Power: First as an extension of an existing Intel build, and second as a new project added to Travis CI just for Power build support.
Building on Multiple CPU Architectures
If your code is used on multiple CPU architectures it probably should be tested on multiple CPU architectures. Travis CI can test on amd64, ppc64le (IBM Power CPUs), s390x (IBM Z CPUs) and arm64 (run on ARMv8 compliant CPUs) if the operating system is Linux. This doc by Travis CI will help you get started.
Case Study: How the IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service team uses Travis CI
This case study describes how Travis CI enabled the Cloud Kubernetes Service team at IBM to address many of the challenges facing software development teams today such as, how to improve productivity, address external security threats, and adopt new technologies to improve uptime and scalability.
