GetYourGuide Background Like many companies, GetYourGuide started out deploying a monolith to a data center. By 2015 they had built an internal tool, hdeploy, to help deploy code to their five physical servers running in a data center in Germany. Engineers would SSH into 'build1', their dedicated build server, and run hdeploy CLI commands there, with manual coordination in a Hipchat room. hdeploy was later upgraded with a Slack bot and support for AWS EC2, but at its heart it was the same tool. By 2017 GetYourGuide was experimenting with Kubernetes 0.9, and their existing tooling around deployments did not fit the bill. They introduced two new internal tools, Convoy and DSS, which helped transition from artifacts to Docker images and from 0 microservices to 150+, while providing a similar manual workflow and control as hdeploy. But by 2019, GetYourGuide had begun to look for a new solution. They had adopted Kubernetes in production, and managing the deployment of 150+ microservices to multiple deployment targets was becoming unwieldy. How Spinnaker and Armory are accelerating software delivery to AWS at GetYourGuide.
