Release and Patch management Orange

What is release and patch management?

Release and patch management are an integral part of the lifecycle management of a server. In Release and Patch Management, software releases are created and automatically rolled out in the relevant environment (e.g. Test, Dev, Prod). Patch management ensures the automatic deployment of security patches, for example.

Where is release and patch management used?

In order to guarantee smooth operation and to test new changes before they are transferred to the production environment, version levels can be defined for different environments. Ideally, new changes are first rolled out and checked on a test system and, if successful, passed on in the corresponding lifecycle. This allows you to check which software versions are available in the different environments. In addition, security updates can be automatically rolled out directly to server groups without globally updating all package versions. The degree of automation and complexity is determined by the users themselves.

What are the advantages of release and patch management?

  • Lifecycle management: By defining software versions for different environments (development, test, production), patches and new releases can be tested before they are implemented in the production environment.
  • Automated roll-out: If desired, security updates can be rolled out automatically to all servers, server groups or individual servers.
  • Versioning: Different software versions mean that corresponding environments with the same version status can also be reproducibly and easily expanded with new servers.
