Deployment Automation Best Practices

To enable fast, reliable releases – deployment automation is a must.

This morning on #c9d9 we talked about the prerequisites and best practices for automating your deployments and ensuring zero downtime and fast mean time to recovery (MTTR) when deploying large-scale mission-critical apps.

We also talked about the key differences between the first-generation of deployment automation and deployment automation 2.0, and riffed on what we have to look forward to for the next iteration of deployment automation 3.0.

devops and open sourceEpisode 47: Open Source and DevOps

Join us on August 9, to discuss the myriad of open source tools involved in your delivery pipeline, and some of the benefits – and challenges – of using open source tools.

We’ll also discuss how to enable your DevOps pipelines to allow system-level visibility and compliance controls over these free tools, as well as mitigate security risks that may be discovered due to the inclusion of open source components and libraries not only in your toolchain, but in your application code and infrastructure themselves.
