Cutting-edge Continuous Delivery: Automated Canary Analysis through Spinnaker - CI:CD Meetup Amsterdam 2019

Cutting-edge Continuous Delivery: Automated Canary Analysis through Spinnaker - CI:CD Meetup Amsterdam 2019

In our quest to get to production faster, we've organised ourselves in cross-functional DevOps teams, embraced microservice architectures, and deployed to the various clouds out there. Along the way we've learned some best practices about how to deploy software at velocity — things like automated releases, immutable infrastructure, gradual rollouts and fast rollbacks.

One of the most sophisticated techniques of ensuring safety while going fast is called automated canary analysis. While canary deployments are becoming a commodity, having an autonomous judge at your disposal analysing metrics of both baseline and canary deployments, makes all the difference.

Enter Spinnaker, an open-source multi-cloud continuous delivery platform which embodies these core principles of safe, frequent and reliable releases with contributions from Netflix, Google, Microsoft, Oracle and Pivotal.

  40. Difference with Terraform / CloudFormation Spinnaker strengths lie in its

    ability to orchestrate deployment workflows using infrastructure. Terraform [& CloudFormation] shine at the management of cloud primitives. -- Brandon Leach, Lookout
