If you want to deploy large-scale distributed systems or monoliths or cloud-native applications in just 2 hours with zero risks, then we have exciting sessions lined up for you on Spinnaker

Spinnaker is an open-source, multi-cloud continuous delivery platform for releasing software changes with high velocity and confidence. It was created at Netflix and has been battle-tested in production by hundreds of teams over millions of deployments. It is backed by a community that includes Netflix, Google, Microsoft, Veritas, Target, Kenzan, Airbnb, Cisco, Mulesoft, and many others.

Some exciting sessions include:

    1. Automated Verification of Deployments for Risk Assessment – Gopinath Rebala, CTO, OpxMx
      • Date: Wednesday, October 7
      • Time (PDT): 11:05am – 11:35am
      • Abstract: Safe and reliable deployments are critical for the continuous delivery of application services. Time taken to detect an issue has a direct impact on the bottom line. Web-scale companies like Netflix practiced deployment strategies like canary deployments and blue/green deployments and use statistical techniques to determine problems before they cause an outage and improve the MTTR in case of an outage. In this talk, we will present an automated verification model combined with canary and blue/green deployments in Spinnaker pipelines. We will present the usefulness of the models in the verification of performance and functionality of deployments using metrics and logs generated in a distributed microservice environment for identifying problems in deployments.

    2. Managed Releases with Spinnaker – Nirmalya Sen, Director of Engineering, OpsMx
      • Date: Thursday, October 8
      • Time (PDT): 11:25am – 11:55am
      • Abstract: Spinnaker is a continuous delivery platform for releasing software changes with high velocity and confidence. But what if you are not doing continuous delivery? What if you are doing managed releases where the release manager based on a lot of organizational and business criteria decides when to release, what to release. Can they use Spinnaker? In this talk, Nirmalya will showcase how you can adopt Spinnaker’s continuous delivery features to be able to make managed releases.
