Continuous Discussions (#c9d9): Episode 25 Recap – Strategies for Deploying Mission Critical Apps at Scale

Earlier today we had a great time on #c9d9 talking about some of the strategies and patterns for deploying mission-critical apps at scale.

  • What are some of the prerequisites for reliably releasing large-scale web applications?
  • How do you ensure zero downtime (and quick recovery if things go wrong..) for mission critical apps?
  • What are Blue/Green deployments; Feature-flags; Dark Launches, Canary Deployments and Environment Promotion ?
  • What are the differences between the deployment patterns, and what does each mean in terms of your architecture, code base or Operations?
