Blue/Green Rails - Easy ECS Clusters with CloudFormation
An intermediate talk proposed by Erin Swenson-Healey
CloudFormation is an AWS offering which allows you to describe all aspects of an application environment (CI, database, application cluster, load balancers, etc.) in a version controlled text file. In this talk, I'll describe how you can use CloudFormation to deploy your Rails application to a scalable ECS cluster supporting blue/green deploys in a safe, repeatable, auditable way.
