Sometimes, you’ll be able to control platform update times to reduce your downtime. When this isn’t an option, which tends to be the case with public cloud systems like Azure, deployment becomes an issue. When you are deploying changes, the first step is to measure the effects of the changes against your current systems and determine the quality of the update. This should be done through testing and integration validations, which give you an accurate measure of how these changes will occur. Software updates are only as safe as you make them, so ensure that when you begin rolling out updates, it’s a gradual process that doesn’t infringe on the quality of your work.
Constant health signal monitoring detects any irregularities and finds any issues during the process. Keep a close eye on your team’s status, and if anyone has encountered any problems so far. Inform security teams about the updates as they roll out, so if any issues come up, they can first find out if the update causes the problem or if it’s an outlier.
