Armory Continuous Deployment-as-a-Service GA
June 17, 2022
Continuous Deployment-as-a-Service delivers declarative
deployments across multiple environments that support advanced
progressive strategies, allowing developers to focus on building
great code rather than deploying it, enhancing their customers'
experience and avoiding outages.
"Our goal is to give companies a solution that's simple to use
but will grow with them as complexity increases," said Jim
Douglas, Armory president and CEO. "The new product enables
development teams to confidently deploy their software every
time without worrying about reliability and security."
Operational downtime can result in hundreds of thousands of lost
revenue for many companies. Armory Continuous
Deployment-as-a-Service prevents this type of loss, both as a
standalone product for cloud-first companies and as an extension
of a leading Continuous Delivery (CD) solution — Spinnaker™.
Armory Continuous Deployment-as-a-Service provides easy-to-use,
environment-specific controls and advanced deployment strategies
such as blue/green and canary to specify how much traffic is
exposed to new changes and when to automatically roll back if
enables development teams to automatically and continuously
verify a service is healthy before routing all traffic to the
new version, limiting risk exposure, avoiding outages and
protecting the customer experience.
Upwave, a marketing analytics company, has embraced Armory's new
product. Previously, Upwave leaders said CD solutions were too
cost-prohibitive and too heavy-weight for the relatively small
company but decided to implement the new Continuous
Deployment-as-a-Service because of its scalability. Upwave has
since enabled continuous deployment and increased to over 100
deployments per week with a mean lead time of less than 20
"The main benefit is that we have converged on a simpler model
of continuous integration/continuous deployment, enabling us to
do more. It's easier, it's simpler, and we have more
functionality," said Christopher Baldwin, chief architect,
Upwave. "Simply put, it raises the bar for quality across our
engineering organization as a whole. Isn't that part of the
software development dream?"
