Multi-cloud Environment Deployments
Deploy to multiple environments and jointly decide whether to proceed or rollback for all.
What are multi-cloud environment deployments?
The Cloud refers to a network of servers connected to the Internet performing a service. Popular clouds are AWS, Azure, Google. Within this network of servers there are regions with clusters and different services running in them. Most often a cluster in a region refers to an environment, which is where different workloads are tested and performed. When you deploy to more than one cluster running in more than one cloud you are effectively utilizing multi-cloud environment deployments.
59% of IT leaders believe deployments to multi-cloud environments are too complex.
Problem: Multi-cloud environment deployments are complex
There are a number of clouds, each with a number of cloud services, that all play different yet similar roles in your infrastructures and applications. There are a number of valid reasons people choose their cloud vendor(s), and accompanying cloud services. The more clouds and cloud services leveraged, not to mention private clouds, the more complex and difficult your deployment process becomes. Developers often wonder when and how do I deploy and where?!
Armory’s Solution: Deploy to multiple clusters, environments, clouds; automatically from one to the next, or all at once.
Use declarative deployments to easily deploy with consistency to multiple environments. State the goals of your deployment process and Armory handles the details. Orchestrate your SDLC and tests across environments by deploying to staging environments, running tests, and promoting only to production if all tests pass.
“Armory automated a cumbersome and mostly-manual homegrown blue-green deployment. Armory easily replaced that process with streamlined and extensible deployment automation. Our new model handles things like deployment approvals across multi-cloud environments. As we roll out future projects, the simplicity of Armory will save us all the time we used to spend building custom processes.”
~Steve Litras, Senior Director of IT & Security, Cribl
How It Works
- Add your account details and declare your multi-cloud environments.
- Specify how environments depend on each other, as well as a list of activities that must happen before an environment is deployed, or after it is deployed (e.g.: security scanning, approval,…).
- Declare your progressive strategy (blue/green, canary,…).
- Commit your code. Deploy. Commit more code. Deploy…
Multi-cloud architecture allows your business to be high performance, flexible, span across the globe, and be nimble as costs and needs change. Simplifying this experience means you can take full advantage of a multi-cloud architecture more confidently. Automate your entire multi-cloud environment deployments lifecycle to decrease your lead time for changes while using the best strategy for each environment type to maximize stability and assure your customer’s experience. You’ll also accelerate your time-to-market and significantly improve your developers’ experience leading to a higher rate of productivity.
Who it Benefits
- Platform Ops teams – Enable developers to see where their code has deployed and what the status is, easily, so everyone can spend more time creating value for your business.
- Application Devs – No need to worry about identifying a target or an optimal deployment process for their application, nor is there any cognitive burden of learning a new tool. Continue committing code. Deploy. Repeat.
- The more clouds and clusters you add the more complex your deployment process becomes.
- With Armory you can deploy to multiple clouds and environments and automate your environment promotion to easily see where your code has been deployed.
