Come visit the Armory booth @ AWS re:Invent! Nov. 30th – Dec. 18th

Nov 27, 2020 by Armory


We are happy to announce that Armory is a Bronze sponsor of AWS re:Invent 2020, taking place taking place virtually from Nov. 30 – Dec. 18. Register for the event for free, and make sure to come by Armory’s virtual booth and chat with Armory and Spinnaker experts.

Armory and Spinnaker success stories will be featured in sessions that you won’t want to miss. These sessions will be featured several times throughout the event for different timezones.

Session Calendar

Going global in minutes: Multi-Region expansion simplified 
High levels of availability, increased compute capacity, and low-latency access to customer applications are all key drivers for leveraging a multi-regional approach. In this session, you will learn how Autodesk leveraged AWS and tooling such as Spinnaker to enable their expansion into new regions with minimal operational overhead. We will discuss best practices and key lessons learned during a collaboration between AWS and Autodesk to speed up Autodesk’s expansion efforts.

Simplifying delivery as code with Spinnaker and Kubernetes
Software delivery can seem simple at first. Step 1: Build code. Step 2: Deploy the application. Step 3: The end. Complexity often sneaks into our processes uninvited, disguised as scale, testing, auditing, sharing, etc. Delightfully simple workflows can quickly balloon into complex pipelines that require operators to see around every corner and, in many cases, are directly at odds with the declarative infrastructure processes operators love to build. In this session, Netflix and AWS discuss their collaboration on Spinnaker’s next-gen vision for transitioning from an imperative mix of pipelines and stages to a more declarative description of end goals and bring the “delightful” back to “delivery.”
  • DEC 10, 2020 | 1:15 PM – 1:45 PM PST
  • DEC 10, 2020 | 9:15 PM – 9:45 PM PST
  • DEC 11, 2020 | 5:15 AM – 5:45 AM PST

Snap Inc.: Leveraging the benefits of AWS Graviton on Amazon EKS

Snap built an in-house service mesh, code-named Switchboard, which is powered by Amazon EKS, Spinnaker, and Envoy. They have evolved the platform to include AWS Graviton instances and since then have seen massive cost savings versus x86 instances. In this session, learn how Snap was able to migrate an x86 application to Arm-based Graviton instances on Amazon EKS. Snap discusses the key benefits and lessons learned using AWS’s next-generation instance types within Kubernetes. Attendees will be able to understand the advantages of using AWS Graviton and how to benchmark their applications on these instance types to establish the cost and performance benefits.

Reduce the Blast Radius of a Bad Deployment with Automated Canary Analysis

May 23, 2022

Software deployment processes differ across organizations, teams, and applications. The most basic, and perhaps the riskiest, is the “big bang deployment.” This strategy updates all nodes within the target environment simultaneously with the new software version. This deployment strategy causes many issues, including potential downtime or other issues while the update is in progress. It […]

Reliable and Automatic Multi-Target Deployments

May 16, 2022

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 […]
