When you are deploying a new change into production, the associated deployment should be in a predictable manner. In simple terms, this means no disruption and zero downtime! In case you do encounter a problem or a bottleneck, the deployment strategy should include a quick roll back.
The safe strategy can be achieved by working with two identical infrastructures – the “green” environment hosting the current production and the “blue” environment with the new changes.
The business and IT teams will have an opportunity to conduct sanity, smoke test or any other test in the “blue” environment before making a “Go” decision. Upon “Go”, the team can switch “blue” to “green” and “green” to “blue”.
In Azure, different processes are available for implementing the Blue-Green strategy with two environments.
We have listed below some of these techniques. Naturally, this list is not fixed and will grow continuously as new tool sets and services emerge.
