As our economy tightens, many companies need new ways to save money. The cost of IT, the cloud, and software development make up a significant percentage of modern organizational budgets. This blog discusses how Continuous Deployment (CD) practices can convert your spend from run-the-business (RTB) to change-the-business (CTB) spend. It explains how CD can create […]
I keep seeing questions from users struggling to get the openCost UI to run in-cluster. This blog shares the configuration I use to run the UI within a Kubernetes cluster.
Today, Armory is excited to announce the availability of the GitHub Action for Armory Continuous Deployment-as-a-Service. GitHub is where developers shape the future of software. After a developer writes and tests their code in GitHub, it must be deployed. Armory’s GitHub Action for Continuous Deployment-as-a-Service extends the best-in-class deployment capabilities to Kubernetes. CD-as-a-Service enables declarative […]
This summer we launched Continuous Deployment-as-a-Service (learn all about it here), and we’re starting this blog to keep you up to date on all of the updates and news around this solution. At Armory, we want to make sure you have all of the tools you need to be successful when deploying your code. Armory will handle your Continuous Deployment so you can focus on what you do best – providing innovation and the best possible customer experience to your customers.
I recently read a blog on how to load test an application using Locust, Helm, and Kustomize. I wanted to add Locust performance testing into my standard deployment pipeline so that I can ensure that performance tests pass before any application code is released to production. This blog discusses how I took the Locust configuration […]
original post For teams that practice CI/CD and ship multiple times a day, waiting weeks to communicate these updates to customers defeats the purpose. After all, if a feature ships and nobody knows about it, did it really ship? You miss out on delivering value to customers sooner, learning which features they’re most excited about, […]
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 […]
We are excited to share the launch of OpenCost, an open source project that provides real-time cost monitoring for teams running Kubernetes workloads.   As container and Kubernetes adoption continues to grow, navigating the complexities around measuring and allocating cost is becoming a business-critical challenge. A recent CNCF survey showed overspend is increasingly a problem for […]
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 […]
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 […]
