Managing Blue-Green Drupal Deployments

The promise of a blue-green deployment workflow is that you can more easily manage risk through high availability and a failover environment, but there are many moving parts to the process and it can seem daunting. We'll discuss the example blue-green workflows and how to integrate the process with Drupal deployments to reduce maintenance downtime, prevent the loss of data, and eliminate last minute surprises during the deployment.

Main topics:

  • Managing parallel environments sucessfully
  • Switching from Blue to Green without changing DNS records
  • Automating blue-green deployments with CI tools
  • Reducing risk and preventing lost data during deployments
