Blue-green deployment


Blue-green deployment is a strategy in software engineering for reducing downtime and risk by running two identical production environments. It simplifies the process of rolling back a software release in case of a failure, ensuring high availability and minimal impact on end users.



  1. Environment Setup: Establish two production environments, termed as 'Blue' and 'Green'.
  2. Initial Deployment: Deploy the new version to the inactive environment (e.g., Green).
  3. Testing: Thoroughly test the new deployment in the Green environment.
  4. Switching: Once tested, switch traffic from Blue to Green.
  5. Rollback Plan: In case of issues, switch back to the Blue environment.
