What is Proper Continuous Integration?

Marko Anastasov · Engineering

Continuous integration (CI) is confusing. As with all ideas, everybody does their own version of it in practice. Get a clear, concise summary of CI, continuous deployment and continuous delivery. Understand how these practices complement each other, and how they can help you develop robust software faster.


With the rapidly growing use of microservices, fast and scalable image distribution has become a critical aspect of the software development practice. If you’re using Docker for developing your applications, you’re already familiar with container registries such as Docker's own Docker Hub. Container registries are used to store, fetch, or deploy Docker images quickly and reliably.

Docker Hub is a cloud-based image registry, covering all aspects of image management, starting from secure storage, team management, and official repositories to running checks for security vulnerabilities.

Docker’s increasing popularity and the move toward microservices grew the need for container registries such as the Amazon EC2 Container Registry (ECR). Cloud-based container registries provide an easy way to store, retrieve or deploy Docker images in a fast and scalable way.

Amazon ECR is one of the most popular services for storing and keeping track of private container images. ECR solves the problem of having to install, operate and scale the infrastructure for a self-hosted container registry.
