Matt Duftler & Michael Graff: Performing Automated Canary Analysis with Kayenta and Spinnaker

At our Meetup in July, we focused on testing in production with systems and processes at scale. Matt Dufler, Senior Software Engineer at Google, and Michael Graff, Senior Software Engineer at Netflix, gave a talk about automated canary deployments. “Try to mitigate the risk, make for safer deployments. Concretely, it almost always means expose a small number of your users to a change. And that can be a binary change, config change, infrastructure change. So expose it to a smaller blast radius. And then once you have an increased confidence, then roll it out to a broader audience.” Watch their talk below to learn more about what an Automated Canary Deployment consists of and how Spinnaker and Kayenta make this possible.
