Armory Continuous Deployment-as-a-Service is Now Available

Jun 6, 2022 by Stephen Atwell

Over the last two years, our customers and prospects have said one thing: everyone wants Continuous Deployment, but adopting CD to production is too hard for many companies. Today we’re excited to announce that Armory is making production-grade continuous deployment available to all users of Kubernetes, regardless of size.

Armory Continuous Deployment-as-a-Service has been in early access since March. Since then, it has been used by engineering teams ranging in size from 20 to several thousand engineers. The 20-person teams are extremely exciting as they have historically been too small to successfully adopt most of the offerings in the market. Today that changes! Christopher Baldwin, the Chief Architect of Upwave, will join me onstage this Tuesday at cdCon to discuss how Upwave benefits from the simplicity and power of CD-as-a-Service.

Armory CD-as-a-Service codifies the most common patterns we see across the vast and elite Spinnaker community. It packages these patterns up into a set of best practices that can be easily and declaratively configured using a GitOps approach to version your configuration as code. Many of our design partners have initially deployed their applications with CD-as-a-Service in under 30 minutes… We have further simplified this experience: stop by our booth to deploy a sample application in four minutes.

Armory CD-as-a-Service currently supports deploying to Kubernetes. Clusters can be easily connected by installing a lightweight agent. CD-as-a-Service can orchestrate multi-environment promotion workflows, along with supporting production-ready deployment strategies that mitigate risk.

With Armory CD-as-a-Service you can:

Rolling deployments use a software release strategy that delivers new versions of an application in phases to minimize downtime. Anyone who has lived through a failed update knows how painful it can be. If a comprehensive update fails, there are hours of downtime while it is rolled back. Even if the deployment happens after hours, […]

What is DevSecOps?

May 23, 2023

Before agile development became an accepted approach to delivering software, companies waited until software contained all desired features before releasing it. Imagine waiting a year before a needed feature became available. Yet, that was how most software releases occurred.  Once the software was released, companies prepared an annual or semi-annual update that incorporated new features […]
