I have some binaries and code to be deployed to various environments. I currently use pexpect library in python to connect and rsync over sash to sync the code. Currently the method uses push mechanism to deploy. Is there a better way to do this? Is pull mechanism better. Any suggestions?

  • Could you add more details? What kind of environments? Heterogeneous or not? What code exactly? Mixed hardware architectures? Why sash? – maxschlepzig Sep 1 '11 at 17:28

You may want to look at Fabric or Capistrano.


You are probably looking for a distributed revision control system like Git, Mercurial etc.



Here's some interesting implementation of Bittorrent protocol for distributed deploy by Twitter guys.
