Integrating Backup Into Your GitOps CI/CD Pipeline
12 Oct 2022
DevOps, Containers and Cloud Native Theatre
The ability to deploy code and version code has been a de facto requirement and a reason we have CI/CD pipelines for our application development, but with Kubernetes we are seeing a closer tie between code and data. In particular, code being deployed can affect and change your data, for that reason, we need to consider protecting that data as part of our Continuous Development pipelines. In this session, we will focus on how we can incorporate backup actions into your pipeline to ensure that any code changes will start by creating a restore point be it a snapshot or an export to another external repository. We will then as part of a demo incorporate a failure scenario into the environment pipeline to simulate how a configmap can manipulate data to cause data loss. Then we need a way to bring the data back!
