Announcing SOC 2 Type II certification ๐Ÿ”

We are delighted to announce that as of December 2021 Buddy has been certified as SOC 2 Type II compliant.

Shared cache drives for Docker CLI

Shared cache drives for Docker CLI

At the end of 2021 we added a new action called Docker CLI. The action launches in a VM with preinstalled Docker and docker-compose, and terminates as soon as the action finishes.

This week, we upgraded this feature by adding the cache for Docker images, layers, and containers. This way, all images that you pull or build will be available for future pipeline executions. The functionality also allows you to transfer the cache between actions and pipelines. For example, you can build the image on the VM in one action, and then push it to the selected registry in another one.

New action: Generate integration variables
New action: Linux VM

New action: Linux VM

Buddy was one of the first CI/CD tools to adopt Docker as a means to accommodate the ever-growing list of system configurations on which software runs. However, as we added more build actions with framework and languages, it soon occurred that some developers require a clean non-Docker environment that could be easily attached to the existing pipeline โ€“ in this case, Linux.
