This is Part VI of the Jenkins LambdaTest Tutorial series wherein Moss (@tech_with_moss), a DevOps engineer, explains about configuring Jenkins controller and Jenkins agent nodes to overcome the limitation of a single Jenkins instance. The growing organization needs to scale Jenkins on multiple platforms like Windows, Mac OS, Ubuntu, and Linux.
