Who is this presentation for?

  • Big data engineers, engineering managers, data scientists, product managers, and IT managers working with real-time backend applications



Prerequisite knowledge

  • A basic understanding of the web (HTTP, web servers, microservices, etc.) and cloud providers and tools (Amazon Web Service, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Engine, Kubernetes, etc.)

What you'll learn

  • Learn how to automate deployments of real-time (web) applications in the cloud
  • Understand the benefits of immutable infrastructure when deploying real-time services
  • Learn how to achieve multicloud deployments with open source tool Spinnaker
  • Discover how to make sure there is no data loss when deploying a new version of the application
  • See how to deal with failure and other unexpected events


When dealing with applications handling billions of web requests per day, deployed on thousands of servers, some serious muscles need to be flexed. Take into consideration that these applications are constantly evolving, requiring frequent deployments with no data loss, and the problem gets even more complicated. How do we deploy these applications while the plane is flying, in a reliable and precise manner, with minimal human intervention?

The solution revolves around one word: automatization. Constantin Muraru and Dan Popescu explain how the right tools make it possible for engineers to automize their deployments in Adobe Audience Manager, so they can stop worrying about the little things and focus on what matters most: creating value for customers by developing beautiful products.

Topics include:

  • Why immutable infrastructure is your best friend
  • How to integrate the open source tool Spinnaker as an instrument to achieve immutable infrastructure when deploying in the cloud
  • How to deal with stateful applications
  • How to deal with failures and other unexpected events
  • How to achieve automated recovery
