The Essence of Continuous Delivery


The focus of Continuous Delivery is often seen in terms of deployments, but after building and operating Spinnaker at Netflix, it's clear the real essence, and indeed value, of Continuous Delivery is something much more impactful. Viewing Continuous Delivery through its real essence presents a world of possibilities for what one can achieve with platforms like Spinnaker.


Andy Glover is the Engineering Manager for Netflix's Delivery Engineering Team, creators of Spinnaker. Before joining Netflix, he served as the CTO of App47, where he lead the development of a SaaS Mobile Application Management platform. Andy is also the co-author of Addison Wesley's "Continuous Integration" book.

Safer Continuous Delivery with Automated Decisioning - Use cases for Spinnaker


Spinnaker allows for safe deployment strategies like Red/Black and Canary. The evaluation of the new version in these deployments is still carried out through traditional manual judgment. Manual judgment becomes unreliable and error-prone as you adopt microservices (due to the high level of interactions/interdependencies) or your deployment frequency increases or you evaluate a large number of metrics. Luckily, Spinnaker allows for you to conduct Automated Canary Analysis (ACA) for judgment of the releases. This talk will explore when and where to use ACA to achieve reliable and safer releases.
