SAM Deployments


SAM usage Cloudformation as the underlying deployment mechanism.

After develop and test locally, we can deploy code using

  1. sam package (Includes in the sam package)
  2. sam deploy

Deployment commands,

  1. sam init: Initialize app using sam template
  2. sam build: Created a deployment ready build directory
  3. sam package: create zip, upload s3, create packaged template
  4. sam deploy: deploy
  5. sam publish: take packaged template and publish

SAM has the built in codeDeploy for helping the safe lambda deployments.

  1. Canary: A certain amount of defined traffic will go to new function for a defined time. If everything goes fine, all traffic will shift to the new function
  2. Linear: Traffic is shifted in equal increments with an equal number of minutes between each increment.
  3. All-at-once: All traffic will be shifted to the new lambda functions.

Canary Example

Canary10Percent10Minutes: Move 10 percent if the traffic immediately to the new version. After 10 minutes, all traffic is shifted to the new version.

CodeDeployDefault.LambdaCanary10Percent5Minutes: Move 10 percent traffic to new lambda function and then all the traffic will be shifted to the new lambda function.

Linear Example

CodeDeployDefault.LambdaLinear10PercentEvery1Minute Will redirect 10 percent of traffics each minutes and in 10 minutes all traffics will be shifted.

CodeDeployDefault.LambdaLinear10PercentEvery2Minutes Will redirect 10 percent of traffics each 2 minutes and in 20 minutes all traffics will be shifted.
