Armory and Spinnaker on AWS bring scalable CD pipeline to Glovo
Glovo’s manual deployment process for updating its application resulted in high error rates and mandatory rollbacks which slowed down business.
Glovo engineering partnered with Armory to support implementation, monitoring, and management of an automated CD pipeline using the Spinnaker CD platform on Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Services (Amazon EKS).
Glovo, a Barcelona, Spain-based startup began its journey in 2015 to become the globe’s on-demand marketplace that can deliver anything to their customers ordered through its mobile application. The three-sided marketplace serves customers, couriers, and vendors, which means there are a lot of moving pieces to it. As the company grew from serving three countries and eight cities to 22+ countries and 300+ cities, Glovo’s application development team could no longer manually keep up with their monolithic application’s updates. The team partnered with Armory to support their transition to a true Continuous Deployment (CD) pipeline via Spinnaker and AWS, increasing successful deployments to 2,000 per year.
