This morning on #c9d9 we talked about some of the differences between traditional “Big bang” releases, and today’s need for CD-style release pipelines. This cadence of releases into production often requires advanced deployments patterns to support high updates rates, while mitigating the risk of failed deployments and maintaining zero-downtime for end users.
Deploying to hundreds (or hundreds of thousands) of servers can be complicated. What are some of the prerequisites and deployment patterns for reliably releasing at scale? How do you ensure zero downtime — and quick recovery if things go wrong — for mission critical apps?
Watch the replay of the episode for the tips our experts shared around patterns such as Rolling Deployments, Blue/Green Deployments, Canary, Feature-flags, and more.
