Using Chaos Engineering to Test AppDynamics Monitoring in PCF

Infrastructure failures can expose gaps in system monitoring and inspire a chaos engineering approach—essentially tossing the proverbial monkey wrench into a system to proactively find and fix problems before they lead to outages. If you’re running a Pivotal Cloud Foundry (PCF) environment on Amazon AWS, for example, you may get notification of failures via an […]

Blue-Green Deployment Strategies for PCF Microservices

Blue-green deployment is a well-known pattern for updating software components by switching between simultaneously available environments or services. The context in which a blue-green deployment strategy is used can vary from switching between data centers, web servers in a single data center, or microservices in a Pivotal Cloud Foundry (PCF) deployment. In a microservices architecture, […]
