Roost Environments as a Service Platform

Reduce Downtime by Improving Pull Request Merge Success 

Icon_Increase Productivity
Pull Request Failures Slow Down Releases

As the number of containerized applications increase, integration issues become harder to detect. Left unaddressed, these issues slow down release timelines and increase pull request 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 Reduces Downtime

To eliminate pull request 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 pull request failure and eliminates the need for the CI phase of the software development cycle.

Roost believes that reducing the distance between development and production is the best way to simultaneously increase developer velocity and improve pull request merge success.

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 pull request failure.

 

 

Benefits of Roost Environments as a Service Platform

Roost enables teams to discover interaction and interdependencies’ issues early in the software development cycle. With Roost developers instantly create ephemeral production-ready environments for every pull request allowing teams to work on multiple features at the same time.

Instant & Ephemeral
Pre-production Environments

Create an instant and ephemeral environment at every pull request, feature branch, tag or a custom insertion point in the DevOps/GitOps pipeline.

Icon_Share Ephemeral Environment


Share Environments with Stakeholders

Developers can share test environment via a custom URL with other developers and stakeholders (QA, product manager, sales, etc.) so they can validate their deliverable.

Significantly Reduce Pull Request Costs

Reduce DevOps engineering and cloud costs while eliminating the management of complex software and custom script creation. Eliminate costs with environments running 24/7 by having the ability to spin them up and down on demand.

Automatic Testing & Certification of Applications

Roost uses machine learning for automatic and continuous code change validation and also auto-discovers service dependencies.

Convention Over Configuration

Roost follows the “convention over configuration” principle and ships with all best practices as policies. For example Roost has built in policies that “do not allow containers to run as root.”*

* According to “Sysdig 2022 Cloud-Native Security and Usage” report 76% of containers in production were found running as root (or privileged).
