Engineering team at charity: water finally gets to stable CI/CD performance while cutting runtime from 1h to just 8 minutes

“There are many CI platforms to choose from but I think Semaphore has really struck the perfect balance of speed, stability, and an elegant UI. It's easy to say that one CI platform is better than another on paper but we have used Semaphore for the past few years and it has continued to meet and exceed expectations. Semaphore is rock solid.”

Kenhub streamlines its development processes with Semaphore and loves the technical support they get out-of-the-box

“You respond really quickly and we talk to people who know what they're talking about (not some random support person telling you to reboot your system). This kind of level of support you can get from Semaphore is invaluable. It clearly stands out and makes a big difference. It’s definitely something to wholeheartedly recommend and I really I want to say thanks again to the team and everybody I spoke to. No exceptions. I know I probably sound like advertising for you guys but that's really how I feel. It's just fantastic really!”

SimplePractice boosts what they thought was unboostable with Semaphore and empowers three teams with just one CI/CD platform

“I can definitely say that shorter build times lead to better time utilization, which means we can ship more stuff faster! Semaphore is a pretty intuitive platform that has all the features you might need (manual deploys!) which allows for easy parallel test workers setup, so one has fewer things to set up and maintain down the road.”

Optimal Workshop logo
Optimal Workshop saves 10+ engineering hours each day by using Semaphore for parallel testing.

Without parallel tests, our test suite would now run well past the hour mark from start to finish. The ability to split the test suite up across 12 or more jobs in Semaphore and have the test suite run in under 7 minutes is so important for us and it saves us a lot of development time.”

Ross Braid, Lead Developer at Optimal Workshop

The par8o team now has 8x faster CI. Using Semaphore Boosters to speed up their Rails tests, they reduced their build time from over two hours to 13 minutes.

“With very little effort, we were able to parallelize our RSpec browser tests so that the average run time dropped from over 2 hours to 13 minutes. If you’re using RSpec or Cucumber for your tests, give Boosters a try. Spending 15 minutes setting up Boosters, most of which is waiting for the build to complete, has been a major time saver for our team.”

500px moved from Jenkins to Semaphore to scale up engineering.

“It’s really easy to scale with Semaphore compared to Jenkins, where a lot of maintenance and overhead is required. When we need more concurrency we just upgrade. Semaphore just works for us.”

Mynewsdesk releases their complex PR platform over 10 times a day by using Semaphore for continuous deployment.

“Our custom testing script was a pain to maintain and configure, so at some point we looked into Semaphore and discovered that it can split our tests without us having to maintain anything. We decided to switch to Semaphore, and everyone in the team has been really happy since then.”

Nicolas Medda, Developer at MyNewsDesk
Kantox logo
FinTech platform Kantox uses Semaphore for fast and reliable continuous delivery.

“Using Semaphore is very straightforward, it’s incredibly helpful that it’s easy to set up, and you don’t have to worry about installing, configuring or maintaining servers and Jenkins instances. It’s all working out of the box, so that lets us focus on writing code and building great FX products.”

Alfredo Lopez, QA Manager at Kantox

Continuous integration for enterprise applications can be complex and costly. Simply Business reduced costs by switching from Jenkins to Semaphore’s hosted CI.

“We were using Jenkins to build the old system, and it was hard to maintain and quite painful. We were also looking at other hosted CI services, but they were very unreliable. We looked for the simplest solution, and we got our application up and running on Semaphore pretty quickly. We’ve kept using it more and more since then, and now we use it for most of our projects.”

Lukas Oberhuber, CTO at Simply Business
Sqor Sports logo
The Sqor Sports dev team chose Semaphore’s cloud CI solution for building and testing their next generation large-scale, fault-tolerant system.

“What appealed to the team the most is how the result of a Semaphore build becomes a part of the GitHub pull request review process. You can see at a glance that a given branch is green, and therefore passes all the checks that we've defined as mandatory for that particular project. That lets the reviewer concentrate on higher-level concerns when reviewing the code.”
