Load Balancing for Blue-Green, Rolling and Canary Deployment

This white paper talks about modern deployment and release models and the importance of modern Load Balancers and Application Delivery platforms to support these processes.

The most significant difference in software development today compared to the past is the rate of deployments: development teams release software to production earlier and more frequently. Customers want more, and they want it now. However, they are quick to leave you for the competition when things go wrong. According to research, 32% of all customers would desert a company they liked after one bad experience.

Releasing more frequent software updates makes it more likely that deployed code will include errors that negatively affect site reliability and hurt customer happiness. Fortunately, there are strategies to minimize failures in production. Automated and comprehensive testing is essential in the pre-production phases, but a controlled deployment strategy is crucial when releasing new code into live traffic in production.
