I haven’t really looked into the essentials of Spinnaker, but we use it to deploy to multiple nodes (if needed) in our cluster.
I personally do not work directly on the maintenance of our Spinnaker tool, our DevOPS department does, so I can not go into any specifications on how this works and what exactly is being managed. That is also the main reason why this answer is extremely short.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
