Elastigroup adds support for Blue / Green (Rolling Updates) in Google Cloud

You can now safely deploy your applications with blue/green deployments on Google Cloud.

Blue/green deployments let you test new application versions before hitting them with 100% of production traffic. If there is an issue with a newly deployed application version, (i.e your instances do not become healthy, or are returning HTTP errors) the blue/green deployment process will fail, and the newly created instances will be terminated.

With blue/green deployments, Elastigroup provisions a new set of instances in batches that you define, using a new Image or start-up script which installs the latest version of your application.After the new instances are deemed healthy, Elastigroup then reroutes traffic from the existing set of instances (Blue) to the new set of instances running the latest version (Green).


Get started with Elastigroup on GCP by navigating to our console, or learn more by reading our documentation.
