How GitOps Enables A Continuous Application Lifecycle
In our recent white paper, we take a deeper look at the true definition of continuous delivery, and how GitOps enables it. In addition to showing you what an actual GitOps pipeline looks like, we also take you through all the important tools that you’ll need to learn about like Helm, Flux, Flagger, and of course Weavework GitOps.

Continuous Deployment vs. Continuous Delivery - Which is Better?
The continuous application lifecycle approach is all about delivering incremental packages on a continuous schedule. The advantage is that in addition to being able to regularly update functionality, you also get a chance to spread out your risk and complexity across an infinite number of deployments. Another benefit of always having another delivery date on the horizon is you don’t have to rush any features to production.
In our whitepaper on how GitOps enables this approach, we take a deeper look at the true definition of continuous delivery (CD), and how it’s different from what most organizations call continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD). We also dig deep into DevOps to look at what works and what doesn’t at an enterprise level and demonstrate successfully how GitOps is the key to doing DevOps the right way.
What you will learn from this Whitepaper:
- What actual CI/CD look like: The difference between what CI/CD is today and what it is actually meant to be.
- How to evaluate whether you’re doing CD the right way or not: An easy way to diagnose whether you need continuous application delivery lifecycle in your life.
- The difference between GitOps and DevOps: Why DevOps is incomplete without GitOps.
- What it takes to build a GitOps pipeline for automation: All the things you need to get started with building an end-to-end GitOps pipeline.
- How to automate deployments, configurations, and Kubernetes with GitOps: A quick look at the tools and methods involved.
- How to automate releases with GitOps: CD is incomplete without automated releases.
- How to create a self-service environment for developers: Say goodbye to raising tickets.
We wrote this whitepaper to help you understand the difference between doing traditional DevOps and using version control for everything. In addition to showing you what an actual GitOps pipeline looks like, we also take you through all the important tools that you’ll need to learn about like Helm, Flux, Flagger, and of course Weaveworks.
Don’t wait, start your journey with the continuous application lifecycle approach today and find out firsthand the benefits of GitOps.
