Rollout automation is something that every service and team needs, and many reinvent the wheel. I'll talk about - why the wheel gets reinvented - a system design that discourages reinvention, including an architecture diagram - the organisational challenges encountered when converting many services to use this new system design - how well the conversion attempt worked in practice This is based on my experience initiating and running a program to replace rollout automation across Storage SRE in Google.
