  1. Rainbow Deploys with Kubernetes, BrandonDimcheff.com (http://brandon.dimcheff.com/2018/02/rainbow-deploys-with-kubernetes/)
    Deployments aren’t as disruptive when your service is stateless, but sometimes stateful services can’t be turned stateless. In this article by Brandon Dimcheff (https://twitter.com/bdimcheff) of Olark, explains how Olark dealt with that issue when deploying their stateful service that powers chat.olark.com. Every time they deployed Kubernetes the traditional way, it would restart all the backends causing all users to reconnect creating a poor user experience and major load spikes. Learn how they solved this with a Rainbow Deployment strategy, and what that is.
