Zero Downtime Django (gunicorn) Deployments on GKE

We recently switched to Twingate’s GKE load balancer to use Google’s new Container-native load balancer. The premise was good - LB talks directly to pods and saves an extra network hops, (with classic LB, traffic goes from LB to a GKE node which then, based on iptables configured by kube-proxy, get routed to the pod) and should perform better, support more features, and in general we’d rather be on google’s maintained side and not on legacy tech.
