Effortless Blue/Green Deployments on Kubernetes with Helm

adminMeetup0 Comments

Last night was our first ever Pasadena “DevOps Mastermind” meetup.

First speaker up was Dan Garfield. He talked about how to achieve Blue/Green deployments. Blue/Green has been around for a long time but what are the “best practices” when using Kubernetes? How does it change when using Helm? Last night we learned from Dan the differences as he demonstrated how to pull it off effectively with repeatability using Codefresh. When using Helm, the picture changes slightly, keeping a history so rollbacks work properly is critical and requires structuring your Helm Chart accordingly. Check out the slides!

Dan Garfield is a Google Developer Expert, Chief Evangelist of Codefresh, and Kubernetes, Helm, Istio, and Docker meetup organizer. His talks have been featured at Kubecon, Swampup, DeveloperWeek, and many other places. He focuses on DevOps, and Deployment Strategies in a micro-service world.
