250+ Spinnaker community members recently attended the 1st Spinnaker Summit at the Netflix campus in Los Gatos. Enthusiasm for Spinnaker is high as enterprises look to achieve continuous delivery with safety across multiple clouds. Users from Netflix, Schibsted, Cloudera, Under Armour, Capital One, Cisco, Gogo Air, Target, Scopely, and Cerner shared their use cases and best practices for running Spinnaker in production.
Andy Glover from Netflix started off the event encouraging the community to leverage the Spinnaker for more than as a multi-cloud deployment tool. One of the key strategies he asked the enterprises to consider is Automated Canary Analysis (ACA) to achieve safety for their continuous deployment. Sure enough, a lot of time in the summit was dedicated to discussing the benefits of ACA and its real-world use cases. ACA allows for a reliable, less error-prone and safe continuous deployment.
In this blog, I have captured three separate sessions that one should watch to understand ACA for your application deployments better. If you are interested in evaluating ACA, please email us at email@example.com and we will glad to provide you guidance and offer a pilot of our OpsMx ACA platform
