Presentation: Continuous Deployment and Automation on Distributed Cloud Environments

Track: Distributed Systems Renaissance / Time: Monday 15:50 - 16:40 / Location: Auditorium, AROS

 At Rovio we knew we need to go big when we started building our services on top of cloud environment. Angry Birds had grown to such a phenomenon that any service we deploy must be able to handle tons of users. Having any manual steps in the process of deployment would mean unnecessary work and errors. The savings were even more clear once we started adding new data centers to the picture. The automation really helps when you have to set up - not just the services - but also the database clusters, cache servers, monitoring systems, load balancers etc.
