Step 1: Parallel Deploys
You asked and we listened! We’re working hard on making your stack builds and deployments faster, and are happy to announce a piece of that puzzle: parallel deployments.
You can now deploy against each server in a stack simultaneously, which has some very big speed implications in stacks with more than one app server.
We used a well-known open source project to test this new feature, and the results are promising. For example, deploying our app to two app servers in parallel took 53% of the time it would take doing so in serial! And the deploy time only gets better from there:
This is the first step in our effort to make deployments faster. We are not going to stop here and will introduce more improvements continuously within the course of coming months.
Refer to our documentation for more information about parallel deployments. We’d love to hear how this affects the deploy time of your app!
