More than 3,000 auto-deploys in the past 8 months on WordPress.com VIP Hosting

Last June, WordPress.com VIP unveiled automatic deploys for static CSS and images for WordPress.com VIP Cloud Hosting clients as one of our meetup projects. We’re always looking for ways to make client code changes faster while keeping their sites safe and secure at the same time.

Our WordPress.com VIP clients commit and deploy code daily, and often each team commits several times a day to keep up with their changing site features and improvements. We do several checks on code optimization and security before approving their commit for deployment, and we’re really proud to get 90% of commits deployed within two hours of submission.

Automatic deploys have now made deploying instantaneous for thousands of client code commits. Thanks to the automatic deploys, we’ve now auto-deployed more than 3,400 commits for VIP clients in the last 8 months! We’re averaging between 15-20 auto-deploys a day, and we see that number steadily increasing. Many of our clients are also experimenting with LESS or Sass, and those .less and .sass files are auto-deployed as well.

Watch this space as we continue to make it possible for WordPress.com VIP Cloud Hosting clients to iterate on their high-performance WordPress sites as securely and quickly as possible.
