CI/CD with Amazon EKS using AWS App Mesh and Gitlab CI

Using containers brings flexibility, consistency, and portability in a DevOps culture. One of the essential parts of DevOps is creating Continuous Integration and Deployment (CI/CD) pipelines that deliver containerized application code faster and more reliably to production systems. Enabling canary or blue-green deployments in CI/CD pipelines provides more robust testing of the new application versions […]
