Companies deploying Kubernetes applications will need to focus on how they will manage the proliferation of clusters

In order to keep up with the speed of innovation, and reduce overhead required to manage the explosion of environments, companies need to move from legacy tools and development processes to a modern solution.

For example, the static nature of most testing sites makes it impossible for efficient testing to occur when dealing with modern complex architectures such as containers, micro services and cloud-native applications. Because of the static nature of testing environments, they will never meet the demand of evolved artifacts and versions of micro services. And, current review processes cause legendary wait times for the hand-off from development to Q/A – bogging down the speed of releases to production. 

No software development team can increase release rates without modernizing their current manual development processes that are done in isolation or testing that occurs on a static staging site. Furthermore, teams that rely on custom scripting to create manual testing process, only create drag and make changes slow and labor intensive.

The Roost platform allows engineers to create ephemeral clusters on demand (ephemeral environments) and manage the duration of time they are needed. The environment, which is defined by a pull request, is automatically tested and validates code changes against all necessary containers and micro services utilizing proprietary scanning techniques which automatically and continuously scan the repository ensuring the latest versioning.

 

Without modernizing the way environments are created, managed and destroyed, companies that utilize modern complex architectures such as containers, micro services and cloud-native applications, will not meet the velocity required for innovation at scale.

 

The Roost Environment as a Service platform not only solves the issues of environment management but also speeds up cycles by automatically testing changes against the code repository while still in development.
