Learn how Rundeck can be levaraged to do one-click Deploys/integrated into CI pipeline. If you are using cloud environments, you will be dealing with large number of servers, Rundeck provides UI/API interface to simplify deployment on cloud/on-prem. We will also looking into writing rundeck jobs to self-service other teams.
Rundeck is an Ops Swiss army knife, it can be used to do one-click deploys, integrated into your CI pipleine to work with Jenkins, or do ad-hoc deploys tied with config management tool such as chef/puppet/ansible. Rundeck neatly adds up to your config management tool to do an ad-hoc deploy.
Rundeck can also be used self-service Dev/QA teams so they can do their own deploys, run complex job from UI without needing access to servers, self service test environments and much more.
