Exposed Services in Ephemeral Kubernetes Environments
Continuous Deployment-as-a-Service simplifies the ability to verify UI and API functionality of services before deploying them to production. CD-as-a-Service enables developers to easily connect to any service it deploys, without additional network configuration. This is especially useful when deploying to ephemeral Kubernetes environments, such as those created for a specific PR, since network configuration can be difficult to navigate and environment specific.

New Get Started Experience
One way we’re making developers’ lives easier is improving the onboarding experience in Continuous Deployment-as-a-Service. Now, when you sign up to try out the product, you’ll be greeted with helpful instructions that allow you to choose between setting up your own application or spinning up a sample app. Either way, you’ll get a step-by-step wizard to get you up and running quickly.
Test out the new getting started experience yourself by signing up for CD-as-a-Service (for free!) right now.
Continuous Deployment Self-Hosted / Managed
New Armory Operator / OSS Spinnaker Operator Update
Now available for Armory customers and open source Spinnaker users! The previous stable version did not allow customers to install Spinnaker on recent versions of Kubernetes, and resulted in negative customer experience with the install. This new version enables Spinnaker to be installed on the latest versions of Kubernetes and by extension EKS and GKE. We still support the older version if they are running older K8s. Learn more in this blog post or follow these instructions to upgrade.
CDSH Release 2.28.5 Now Available
This release includes bug fixes and a ton of updates, but it also includes some breaking changes and known issues. For the best experience, check out the full release notes for Armory Continuous Deployment v2.28.5
Early Access Feature in 2.28.5: Dynamic Rollback Timeout – Now you can configure the timeout value for DetermineRollbackCandidatesTask within the rollbackCluster via the Spinnaker UI/Portal. If you have experienced intermittent timeouts in the rollbackCluster stage, now you can choose your own timeout value to prevent them. Learn more about how to enable this Early Access feature flag in these release notes.
