Software Supply Chain Versioning With DeployHub

DeployHub Versions the Supply Chain and Tracks Historical Trends

DeployHub performs software supply chain versioning by tracking every software component consumed in the supply chain and capturing the component configuration, security, and DevOps data for each new version. Software supply chain versioning is becoming increasingly important to support decoupled, cloud-native development, where thousands of objects are continuously pushed into the software supply chain.  One might ask, “What does the future look like when I manage and track hundreds of components that comprise a single version of my software application?” Most teams will need more than an Excel spreadsheet to track and version components. 

DeployHub’s Historical Trends and Comparisons

DeployHub’s versioning engine tracks all changes across the supply change for historical comparisons. Like source code versioning, DeployHub snapshots the configuration details of the component and logical application versions. This information is used for comparisons and tracking trends over time.

DeployHub Exposes Component Drift

‘Drift’ is a common issue across the software supply chain, particularly in decoupled architectures. Drift is created when different versions of a single component run in multiple environments. In the example below, all three websites, the candy store, clothing store, and toy store, use a set of common components, including the shipping service. Notice that ‘drift’ has occurred at the clothing store, which continues to be one version behind.

DeployHub’s software supply chain versioning shows which version of the component is deployed across all environments, allowing teams a high degree of flexibility regarding when and where a new component will be deployed.
