If you haven't done Blue-Green Deployments, AWS is an excellent environment in which to try them.  They reduce a lot of risk during a major push to production.  The technique described in this pretty definitive blog post on the topic includes the following services:

  • Elastic Load Balancing
  • Elastic IP
  • Route53 DNS Redirection
  • Elastic Beanstalk


If you're trying to follow Continuous Delivery practices, Blue-Green Deployment is definitely a pattern you need to know.
