Once you have embraced continuous delivery, your next step is to automate your deployment so it becomes both continuous and iterative, including the full stack such as database updates, infrastructure and environment variables. Many would say that continuous deployments are a luxury only the ‘big’ DevOps players can enjoy. Do not buy into that line of thinking.
This session will cover how all teams can deploy like Facebook, Netflix and Amazon. It will cover the ‘must haves’ for doing continuous deployments as well as a review of cultural changes that need to occur to guarantee your success. This webinar will show you how to make the move from monolithic deployments to small 'iterative' releases using Open Source and low cost options.
Tracy Ragan, CEO DeployHub, Inc.
Tracy began her odyssey in the area of DevOps long before the term was coined. In the late 1980’s she consulted to Wall Street firms on ways to improve the software build & deploy process through automation. Having begun her programming career as a mainframe developer, she quickly recognized how the new ‘distributed’ datacenter lacked the build and deploy processes that were standard on mainframe systems. In 1995, she co-founded OpenMake Software, a private software company that specializes in the automation of cross platform, and accelerated software builds (compile/link standards). Her innovation in this area was recognized by IBM, leading her to a board position on the newly formed Eclipse Foundation where she served for 5 years. Tracy has also worked with CA technologies in designing ‘Application Lifecycle’ solutions and presenting at many break-out sessions at CA World since 1997.
In 2014, Tracy recognized that there was a gap in open source tooling around Application Release Automation for performing continuous deployments. This led to the formation of DeployHub, a new product and company focused on bringing open source Continuous Deployment Automation to the agile project team. DeployHub OSS was launched as an open source solution in the spring of 2017. She followed up the open source offering with the creation of DeployHub.com, a company that provides both support and professional upgrades to DeployHub OSS to meet the needs of the large enterprise. Tracy currently leads the DeployHub team with a focus on the future of software deployments specific to the needs of microservices and Kubernetes. More at https://www.deployhub.com/tracy-ragan/.
