Everybody wants to go faster - faster time to market, faster deployment times and higher deployment frequency. But speed cannot come at the expense of reliability, security or observability of the system. Progressive delivery is one of the essential building blocks for application teams to introduce greater velocity without compromising security and resilience.
In this talk Jason Morgan, Developer Evangelist at Buoyant, and Paul Curtis, Principal SA at Weaveworks are introducing the concept of progressive delivery across multiple clusters and environments. With technologies such as Linkerd, the ultra light and simple service mesh, and Weave Kubernetes Platform, teams can progressively move traffic to Kubernetes - controlled and securely. Best in class GitOps workflows ensure developer friendly operations for Kubernetes while ensuring High Availability and Disaster Recovery across multiple backends.
In this talk we are setting up a true hybrid scenario that
- allows you to work on traffic shaping with progressive delivery methods such as blue green and canary
- promotes workloads from dev onto production clusters from Git
The demo will be utilizing technologies such as Weave Kubernetes Platform, Flagger and Linkerd.
