SLOs For Quality Gates In Your Delivery Pipeline
SREs use SLOs to ensure production is stable and changes from development are not impacting SLAs. Error Budgets are a great way to decide whether we can still deploy or not. But – every deployment has a risk of impacting critical SLOs, will eat up the error budget faster than planned and eventually lead to a slowdown of innovation. In this session we demonstrate how to use the concept of SLOs as part of continuous delivery to already validate the impact of code or configuration changes before its time to deploy to production. It gives developers faster feedback on the potential impact of their code changes, will increase quality of code that makes it to the gates of production and will therefore result in less impact when the actual production deployment happens. We will demoing this approach using the open source projects Keptn’s SLO-based Quality Gate capability.Watch Talk
