In this video Floyd digs into how applications can be grouped together into a project, which can then be deployed to a target in an environment. He also discusses how target roles are used to decide where an application is deployed.
- [Instructor] Now let's look at some of the terms…you will need to know,…when using Octopus Deploy.…The first term is Environment.…An Environment is a group of servers…or as Octupus calls them, Target's.…Examples of an Environment's are QA, Staging,…and Production.…A Target can be a Windows or Linux server.…The next term is Project.…A Project is one or more application's…that should be deployed together.…On the left, you can see a single Web Project…that has it's own database.…On the right, you can see a Project…that contains a Web Application…and a Windows Service,…which are coupled together…because they both share a single database.…
Something to note on coupling,…if you have applications that share a single database…without well defined boundaries,…you will want to group the database and the applications…all into the same Project.…You might be tempted to have a Project for each application…and a separate Project for the database,…however, this should be avoided.…As it's sure to happen,…you will deploy a change to one application…
