The Shift to Microservices and Continuous Delivery

In this blog we provide some context around why you need microservices and explain how the adoption of microservices was the catalyst that ultimately led to continuous delivery and continuous processes.

Practical Continuous Delivery

Making the transition to automated continuous delivery pipelines can be a challenging process. Read this blog to learn some best practices for implementing CD pipelines in your organization.

GitOps: High velocity CICD for Kubernetes

This blog post explains techniques for development teams who strive for high velocity continuous delivery using Kubernetes and Docker. When we say “high velocity” we mean that every product team can safely ship updates many times a day — deploy instantly, observe the results in real time, and use this feedback to roll forward or back. The goal is for product teams to use continuous experimentation to improve the customer experience as fast as possible.

GitOps - modern best practices for high velocity application development

A “you build it, you own it” development process requires tools that developers know and understand. “GitOps” is our name for how we describe modern best practices for high velocity application development with cloud native tools. Read this summary post about the GitOps pipeline model, why its beneficial to adopt this methodology and how to get started.
