“Roost takes a three-pronged approach to improve the effectiveness of DevOps pipelines: what constitutes an environment, how long does it need to run and when should it run. Carbon-conscious customers of Roost's benefit notonly from the most cost-effective time, but also the most carbon-efficient time to run the applications,” said Rishi Yadav, CEO and co-founder. 

Roost’s Ephemeral Environments are Carbon-aware by Nature, Only Having a Lifespan for the Duration it is Needed helps customers reduce application carbon footprint by measuring and reducing Software Carbon Intensity (SCI). SCI technical specification describes a methodology for calculating the rate of carbon emissions for a software system. SCI specification is developed by Green Software Foundation (GSF).
