Status of blue-green deployment

docker

(Gnschenker) #1

Now that Docker has bought Tutum and the product is called Docker Cloud I wonder whether or not blue-green deployment similar to what is described in this Tutum blog post (http://blog.tutum.co/2015/06/08/blue-green-deployment-using-containers/) still works and if yes what needs to be changed in the setup/definition.

Update:
So far it looks like replacing “tutum” with “docker-cloud” works, except for this:
It looks like the “dynamically modifying links without downtime” doesn’t work anymore and the latest of tutum/haproxy does not auto reload its configuration on a change of the links but we have to redeploy the service - which of course requires down-time :frowning:
Am I missing something?
