Alas, No : A great post about continuous delivery of infrastructure services

Lindsay Holmwood, writing about continuous delivery for infrastructure services:

There is a growing body of evidence to show that continuous deployment of applications lowers defect rates and improves software quality. However, the significant corpus of literature and talks on continuous delivery and deployment is primarily focused on applications - there is scant information available on applying these CD principals to the work that infrastructure engineers do every day.

Through the process of building a monitoring service with a continous deployment mindset, we’ve learnt quite a bit about how to structure infrastructure services so they can be delivered and deployed continuously. In this article we’ll look at some of the principals you can apply to your infrastructure to start delivering it continuously.

It’s a fantastic idea, and Holmwood’s write-up is both thorough and clear. I particularly like the distinction he makes between Continuous Deployment and Continuous Delivery.
