Pivotal Podcasts

To aid in the use of Pivotal Cloud Foundry, and therefore Canopy Cloud Fabric, Pivotal are creating a series of podcasts that outline key features.


Cloud Foundry Introduction

This podcast gives more detail about some of the underlying services in Cloud Foundry such as Operations Manager, without going in to too much technical detail.

The Cloud Fabric Operations Team handles both Operations Manager and Regional Availability. This means that Canopy handles the scaling and maintenance of the underlying Infrastructure as well as transferring your applications from one location to another, this can be either moving from or between physical datacentres or between IaaS providers without losing any applications.

Blue-Green Deployment

This podcast explains how companies, such as Canopy Cloud, updates software without causing any application downtime. This is known as Blue-Green deployment.

The Blue application is the current code whilst the Green application is the update. Whilst the current application (Blue) is running, a new version of the application (Green) is deployed and given a unique URL to allow testing. The original URL from the Blue application can then be assigned to Green and then the old version (Blue) can be stopped to allow Green to run under the original URL. This means that a new version has been pushed with minimal downtime to the application. Stopping Blue, rather than deleting it, allows the application to be rolled back if any major bugs or crashes with Green are found.
