      SAM SIG: Applied Lean Startup Ideas: Continuous Deployment at kaChing May 26, 2010 kaChing is an online platform that connects investors with outstanding investment managers. We are a technology driven company, which has adopted lean methodologies from the start, and has achieved a 5-minute commit-to-production cycle. Continuous deployment is a way of life and is integral to our engineering culture. In this talk, we will present our system's architecture and discuss our service oriented platform dubbed kawala (in the process of being open sourced on http://code.google.com/p/kawala). We will describe the mechanics of an automated release from check-in to production: clean build with full regression testing in less than 3 minutes, packaging and deployment by automatically redirecting traffic using ZooKeeper for coordination, health checks and immune system to monitor the release. Finally, we will talk about planned evolutions and the next challenges we face in our infrastructure.

          There are many factors that drive sustainability. Tenants and occupants are starting to demand greener, cleaner buildings. Legislation is starting to mandate energy efficiency and a curtailment of greenhouse gas emissions. Lighting associated with commercial buildings accounts for close to 71 percent of overall lighting electricity used in the United States. It is the largest cost component of a commercial property’s electricity bill and a significant portion of the total energy bill.
