Version Jumping and Deployment Version Control – a cornerstone of Continuous Delivery.
Software Deployment Version Control is performed by application release automation (ARA). Deployment version control allows for your release automation to roll back code updates or version jump. Unlike its more expensive competitors, DeployHub includes deployment full version control. DeployHub has the intelligence to sort out the incremental change between ANY two releases – not just between 1.1 to 1.2 for example. Deployment version control, like software version control, tracks the incremental changes between each delta. DeployHub uses a relational database to forward chain the deltas for each software deployment, including database alters. Therefore, when a deployment occurs, DeployHub updates the database to capture the delta. DeployHub makes rolling back, rolling forward or Jumping Versions fast and easy.
Jumping your software deployment forward or backward at any time is an essential feature in Release automation. It is what allows the integration of database and infrastructure configuration management steps into the deployment process. Without it, the release automation tool is simply allowing you to update files without the intelligence of knowing how to go back or forward at any time.
