It’s been a few months since we have announced Ocean, our flag-ship product in the container sphere, which provides you with a server-less experience when running your K8s clusters.
As part of the product’s continuous development effort, we are happy to announce our latest improvement, Ocean Roll Cluster.
Starting today, you will be able to roll the deployment of your K8s cluster from Spotinst’s UI and API.
Prior to this improvement, every time you performed infrastructure changes which required a deployment roll, (Modify AMI, User-Data, Security-Group, Private IP, etc.), you were required to perform actions such as disabling the Ocean “Auto-Scaler”, and manually detaching the instances.
Now ,using Ocean roll, you will have the ability to roll your cluster with a single click, in order to replace instances in a blue-green manner. The deployment is taking into consideration the actual pods which are currently running in the cluster, and freezing any auto-scaling related activity, until the roll will be completed.
We hope that this improvement will ease your K8s operations when using Ocean. More exciting features are coming up, Stay Tuned!
