Octopus Deploy makes it effortless to push your code from development through to test, staging, and production. Octopus is built to make your deployments successful, but sometimes deployments go wrong even with the best planning.
A robust rollback strategy is key to any deployment strategy. In this webinar, we’ll cover best practices for IIS deployments, Tomcat, and full stack applications with a database. We’ll also discuss how to get the rollback strategy right for your situation. Join Bob Walker, VP of Customer Solutions, and Shawn Sesna, Senior Solutions Architect, to learn:
- Common problems in production that cause the need for a rollback
- Strategies for rolling back and forward
- Considerations when rolling back databases
