Change Failures Slow Down Release Timelines
As the number of containerized applications increase, integration issues become harder to detect. Left unaddressed, these issues slow down release timelines and increase change failure rates. Containers promised to make downtime a thing of the past however, because containerized applications are meant to be updated and iterated on constantly, each and every change introduces a risk of failure.
How Roost Eliminates Change Failures
To eliminate change failures developers need to have the ability to spin up production-like environments to share, test and certify cloud-native applications. This allows developers to certify that their services are production ready eliminating change failure.
Why developing in a production-like environment is critical to developers.
A production-like environment provides DevOps teams with an on-demand service testing and validation tier that is as close to production as possible.
By developing in this shared environment developers receive feedback from all stakeholders and issues are found early in the development cycle — eliminating change failure.
Roost ensures cloud-native applications are battle hardened before they hit production.
Roost enables teams to discover interaction and interdependencies’ issues early in the software development cycle. With Roost developers instantly create ephemeral environments for every pull request allowing teams to work on multiple features at the same time.
Instant & Ephemeral Production-Like Environments
Roost allows developers to spin up a temporary, sharable production-like environment. This allows QA to run tests at the same time the product team is providing feedback.
Once the release is complete the instance can be disposed of reducing the need for cloud services.
Develop, Test & Certify in a
Roost makes 'works on my machine' a thing of the past. Developers get feedback from stakeholders automatically and continuously and work on multiple features at the same time.
For example Product managers certify pull requests (PR) and provide feedback asynchronously and independently, even while QA is still testing it! Once all parts art working together product manager can certify the feature to be released into production.
Cloud XOps Costs
By using ephemeral environments developersRoost not only saves time and money but also solves the tooling gap... and beyond.
