Multi-target deployments can feel tedious as you deploy the same code over and over to multiple clouds and environments — and none of them in the same way. With an automatic multi-target deployment tool, on the other hand, you do the work once and deliver your code everywhere it needs to be. Armory provides an […]
KubeCon+CloudNativeCon EU is one of the world’s largest tech conferences. Here, users, developers, and companies who have and intend to adopt the Cloud Native standard of running applications with Kubernetes in their organizations come together for 5 days. From May 16-20, 2022, tech enthusiasts will congregate both virtually and in person in Valencia, Spain to […]
Deciding how frequently to release a product is an interesting challenge faced by many companies. There are definite pros and cons related to adjusting your release cadence that have to be evaluated on an individual basis. Faster release cycles in theory might sound good, but of course, there can be tradeoffs. Looking at historical release […]
Before I came to Armory, I spent several years building products to provide transparency into IT costs. For many businesses IT Costs are a black hole, they make up a significant percentage of a company’s total expenses, but are hard to understand and control. Modern cloud services provide the ability to easily turn capacity off […]
When you adopt a new deployment pipeline, it’s critical that you can easily leverage your existing test processes. Doing continuous deployment to production isn’t as simple as just deploying code. You need to deploy to test environments along the way to validate the code is working properly. You only want to deploy to production if […]
Software has grown exponentially across all industries in the last decade, both in adoption and complexity. This growth is due in part to digitization across sectors. It’s also in part because of the constant evolution of software development practices, which enable developers to build more exciting software better and faster. Agile methodology has become the […]
We recently onboarded the main server component of our new software delivery platform — codenamed Borealis — onto Borealis itself. I’m going to talk a bit about Borealis, the experience of dogfooding at Armory, and what we hope to learn from it. Borealis and Deploy Engine The application we onboarded is called Deploy Engine. The […]
Joining the Spinnaker community sometimes feels like drinking straight from a firehose. During my first two months at Armory, I have been very lucky to have a set of amazing co-workers who have been able to support me throughout my learning journey. However, this is not the case for most new developers entering the CI/CD […]
Before we begin – we would like to assure you that Armory Enterprise and OSS Spinnaker are NOT with the standard deployment paradigms vulnerable to this vulnerability.  Your services have to be deployed to an application server as a WAR.  Not even all application servers are impacted (though I’d suspect MOST are due to how […]
This article explores how continuous delivery helps organizations maintain compliance and discusses how Armory helps with features such as rollbacks and progressive deployments to tighten control over your solution infrastructure. It shows how to improve code deployments, ensure compliance, and maintain a healthy and active innovation ecosystem between your developers and operations team. Developers and […]
