Our competent DevOps team with a solid CI/CD pipeline may also perform continuous deployment, where updates are routed through the CI/CD pipeline and passing builds are sent straight to production.
- Build: This step of the continuous integration process comprises the generation and compilation of code.
- Testing: Team members test the code at this point. Continuous delivery and deployment both use automated testing.
- Delivery: A codebase that has been authorized is deployed to a production environment after developer permission.
- Deploy: Products or code are delivered to repositories and subsequently pushed into deployment with human approval in continuous delivery.
Once the code has been tested and developed as part of the CI process, continuous delivery takes over during the final steps to guarantee it can be deployed to any environment at any time. Continuous delivery provides the infrastructure to deploy the application and test the production environment.
