There's an unmistakable aura that descends upon the room when a development team is preparing a deployment to production. It's exciting. It's cathartic. It's victory. More than anything, it's scary. SilverStripe Platform gives you the tools to deploy with confidence and ensure a smooth deployment of your website each and every time.
Deployments are scary
Too often, we really don't know what's going to happen. We know that we've followed all the steps in our process. The unit tests pass, and the behaviour testing has gone smoothly. Still, we don't really know what technological surprise lurks on the other side of that big red button.
Teams may mitigate this feeling by bloating their process. They add multiple layers of redundant checks and balances that complicate and ultimately slow down deployments, making them more expensive than they need to be. When a hotfix is released, the team may short-circuit that process in haste, which just does nothing to quell the fear of deployment.
When deployments are risky, teams naturally limit how often they occur. This further increases the risk involved as releases have more changes, and more factors that could go wrong. If you can release often, without risk, then you can innovate and adapt faster.
Deploy with confidence
With SilverStripe Platform's deployment tools, that big red button is fearlessly clicked. Our powerful deployment tool is tailored for SilverStripe CMS projects and is designed to ensure development best practices are simply baked into the process as a matter of course. Technically getting your new website to your testing server and finally across to production becomes trivial.
Stop worrying. Start delivering. Leave yourself more time for the launch party.
