How to Set Up Automated Release Analysis in Spinnaker Deployments

Updated 11/16/2017

Spinnaker, a continuous delivery platform is becoming popular among software deployment teams with its superior ability to orchestrate software delivery faster, safer and across multiple clouds. With the 1.1 release, Spinnaker has introduced the ability to do even safer release deployment with the Canary deploy option (using the canary feature flag). Before this release, Red/Black deployment offered safer deployment with the ability to rollback to the prior release, if the new release had issues.  Rolling Red/Black is also planned for a future release in Spinnaker. It is critical to enable automated canary analysis for the deployments to truly benefit from these safe deployment strategies.

In this blog, we will review how to set up automated analysis for Canary and Red/Black deployment strategies instead of manual judgment or verification.
