Tired of constantly rolling back your .NET releases?

What if you could deploy first time, everytime?

Accelerate Deployments, Bringing New Features to Market Faster

Big release day takes site down

Your Development team have been toiling for the last 2 months.

They have all the best features that you’ve been dreaming of for the past 6 months.

It’s been tested and signed off. Everyone is excited about this release. It’s the buzz of the office.

Deployment package and instructions get emailed to the Operations team. This is the first time they’ve heard about it.

Boom, bang, bugs!!!

All hell breaks loose and there’s a mad panic to roll back the release.

You’ve now missed your deployment window.

Back into Development to fix the bugs, and wait for your deployment window again. Which could be days, or even weeks (depending on the bugs).

Was it even a bug? Or just an issue with the environment? Or a mistake with the manual process.

You’ve wasted the time of your Operations, Testers, Developers and everyone in between. You’ve missed the new feature, and maybe even your customers experienced downtime.

The excitement has been extinguished, and replaced with tired and everyone is pissed off. Including the “furious marketing team” who are waiting on the deployment too.

Your last 5 releases have all had to be rolled back and even the rollback is now unstable.

“60% of application failure & downtime are related to releases despite 75% of IT operation time spent on release management.”

- Forrester Research

Imagine on the day of release you deploy at the click of a button, and everything just works.

Imagine on the day of go-live, you have already released using the exact same procedure 1000 times. You’ve deployed this release to an exact replica test environment hundreds of times in the past week alone.

You have tested and improved this release procedure and are confident that it will succeed.

It takes fewer people to push the release live and it’s completed in a fraction of the time.

(And if there is an issue with the release? You can roll back in seconds instead of hours.)

“High-performing IT teams deploy code 30 times more frequently than their peers, and 200 times faster (measured in the time required to go from “code committed” to code successfully running in production).”

— PuppetLabs State of DevOps 2015
