How Ephemeral Environments Benefit DevOps Teams

Advantages of Roost Ephemeral Environments 

An ephemeral environment is the easiest and fastest way to create a pre-production environment that automatically tests code changes.

Developers can effortlessly create an ephemeral environment at every pull request, feature branch, or insertion point in the DevOps / GitOps pipeline using the same micro services, containers, sidecars, etc. as production.Icon_Increase Productivity


Accelerate Release Cycles

Roost’s proprietary technology automatically tests code changes against upstream and downstream services by scanning code repositories.

Once testing is completed, a preview environment can be shared via a custom URL with all stakeholders, including the devops team and product management, so they can review and provide real-time feedback.

Avoid running environments 24/7 by scheduling length of deployment time. Eliminate the management of complex software and custom script creation done by individual developers.


 

What is an Ephemeral Environment?

Ephemeral simply means without fixed boundaries or life span. It is used as long as it is needed, no more and no less. Ephemeral environments used for software development are designed fundamentally to be short-lived and to go away after merging to the CI/CD pipeline.

Developers use ephemeral environment so they can can quickly test and validate code changes thus eliminating wait times for staging sites and speeding up release cycles.
