What is a CI/CD Pipeline ? Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery Explained.
CI/CD pipeline is defined as a series of steps that include all the stages from the outset of the CI/CD process and is responsible for creating automated and seamless software delivery. With a CI CD pipeline, a software release artifact can move and progress through the pipeline right from the code check-in stage through the test, build, deploy, and production stages. This concept is powerful because once a pipeline has been specified, parts or all of it can be automated, speeding the process and reducing errors. In other words, the goal of a pipeline workflow is to make it easier for enterprises to deliver software multiple times a day automatically.

What is Canary Analysis ?
We discussed the basics of canary deployment In the blog “What is Canary Deployment?“. It is one of the most widely used strategies because it lowers the risk of moving updates into production, while simultaneously reducing the need for additional infrastructure. Today, many applications run in a dynamic environment of microservices, which makes the software integration and delivery process complex. The only way to successfully deploy updates consistently is to use solid automation with tools like Spinnaker.
