Application Deployment, also known as Software Deployment, is the process of installing, configuring, updating, and enabling one application or suite of applications that make a software system available for use, like facilitating a certain URL on a server.
Application Deployment is one of the most important stages of the software development process as the strategy that is used to build, test, and deploy will directly impact how fast an application can respond to changes in constituent preferences or requirements, and most importantly—the quality of each change.
The Application Deployment Process involves nine main steps:
There are a variety of techniques that can be used when it comes to Application Deployment. Some can be achieved through load balancers which have become essential for modern app development based on microservices and Kubernetes containers. The following strategies are commonly used:
VMware can help organizations accelerate their application deployment rates as well as simplify the application migration systems. By isolating apps from underlying operating systems, VMware can assist in eliminating application conflict and streamline management and delivery.
