Section: Full talk of 40 mins duration Technical level: Intermediate Status: Rejected


As you grow as a startup, your infrastructure complexity increases and it becomes hard to reason about.

ClearTax tried a few different options to bring everything to a common platform. We finally decided upon using Netflix’s Spinnaker.

This talk compares Spinnaker to other options we looked at, describes how and why we chose spinnaker, how we are using it; and the leverage it provides.


  • Problem statement: Multiple teams, multiple services, need for common infra layers
  • What we looked for in a solution, the options we investigated
  • Why we chose Spinnaker
  • The story of our migration to Spinnaker
  • Wins and Losses
