Continuous delivery (CD) a software development or engineering process that enables short-cycle, incremental development. Continuous delivery allows dev teams to build and release software at any time. Short-cycle delivery allows devops to reduce costs and speed time to deployment for new releases. CD requires a highly repeatable structure and is often considered an extension of continuous integration (CI).
In a combined CI/CD pipeline, developers ensure that all changes to main branch code are releasable to production.
