Spinnaker Summit 2019 Preview: Canary deploys give us a window into how new code deploys perform in production on a limited basis. The technology holds great promise in helping us learn the positive or negative effects of deploys without putting the more extensive set of microservices, application functions, and beyond at risk.
How do you route traffic? How do you apply a virtual service manifest? Is there a quick way to perform a smoke test to find server errors? When comparing metrics from new code to old, how do you know which results are good or bad? There is a lot to know and learn how to deploy and use Canarys.
Our DevOps Chat guest Omar Al-Hayderi (Engineering Manager and Principal Engineer at Autodesk) is giving a talk on “Canary Deploys with Istio: Lessons Learned” at the Spinnaker Summit 2019. His talk is on Sunday, November 17, at 1:30 PM PT.
Spinnaker Summit 2019 is November 15-19 in San Deigo.
