Canary deployment and Blue/Green deployment are completely different and need varying amounts of resources and infrastructure in place, to roll out newer features or newer versions. Blue/Green is a production strategy, in which you require to maintain two nearly identical applications, whereas Canary deployments approach this in a phased and calculated manner, which is cutting down the cost, time, and extra efforts, etc. Whereas, with Blue/Green, deploying services needs very huge infrastructure. So, Blue/Green deployment will suit applications that come with major updates upon each release, whereas Canary suits fast-evolving applications and which do not have a huge infrastructure to ho for Blue/Green deployments.
