Deployment Manager 2
Easy release management for .NET apps, services, and databases
"Our old deployment process was cumbersome and stressful – now it’s almost fun."
Mattias Geigant, Developer, BEAB
Mattias Geigant, a developer at Swedish firm BEAB, tells us how Deployment Manager saved them from a painful, manual deployment process.
We've contemplated moving away from a predominantly manual, and therefore very error-prone, deployment process for quite some time. After evaluating Red Gate's new product, Deployment Manager, and realizing its potential, we decided to go ahead and buy it.
Currently, we are in the process of applying it to our deployment routine. We've also started using TeamCity for automatic builds.
We've started slow by using it to deploy updates to our test servers, and it's been smooth sailing so far. Our old deployment process was cumbersome and stressful - now it's almost fun to deploy applications!
Soon we'll let DM take over the responsibility for the production environment as well.
Recently, we had to install an urgent bug fix on the production server. Under the circumstances, we decided to concentrate on the bug fix and just use the old deployment process.
And boy, was it a return to the bad old days! We had some familiar frustrations along the way: "But this runs on my development box - what's wrong with the freaking server? Oh, did I miss THAT step in the routine?"
Needless to say, at that point I really missed Deployment Manager.
After this unpleasant reminder of the trials of the past, we'll finish moving to the new deployment routine - using Deployment Manager as its backbone - as soon as possible!
