Amazon CloudFront now supports continuous deployment, a new feature to test and validate the configuration changes with a portion of live traffic before deploying changes to all viewers.
Continuous deployment with CloudFront gives you a high level of deployment safety. You can now deploy two separate but identical environments—blue and green, and enable simple integration into your continuous integration and delivery (CI/CD) pipelines with the ability to roll out releases gradually without any domain name system (DNS) changes. It ensures that your viewer gets a consistent experience through session stickiness by binding the viewer session to the same environment. Additionally, you can compare the performance of your changes by monitoring standard and real-time logs and quickly revert to the previous configuration when a change negatively impacts a service. Typical use cases for this feature include checking for backward compatibility, post-deployment verification, and validating new features with a smaller group of viewers.
