          Reviews of GitHost CI and Solano CI
          Review ofSolano CISolano CI

          Some of the stuff I've enjoyed the most about Solano:

          • turnkey parallelism out of the box, with very little setup required (ie, it's fasstttt with almost no work)
          • in all, when I set it up 2 years ago, I found it much easier to set up than the competitor service we were using at the time (and I've set up a couple competing services since then -- this is is still the easiest)
          • sane defaults, project auto-detection, extensive configuration available (versions of everything)
          • useful parsed results that are sortable & filterable (ie, you can filter just to show failed specs)
          • github integration (commit hooks + badges on PRs)
          • cached dependencies (for ruby, it's the bundle by default but you can add custom stuff like assets)
          • infinitely customizable (I set up a project to run specs for a mobile app I'm building. maybe not impressive to some of you but as a rails developer, I thought it was cool)
          Review ofSolano CISolano CI

          Solano is a great CI tool, and it has become an essential part of our build process. The suite builds in parallel, which makes test runs fast. The support team is super responsive and helpful.

          Airbnb uses Solano CISolano CI

          "There are a ton of excellent strategies for speeding up Rails test suites—aggressive use of stubbing/test doubles, decoupling logic from models, avoiding loading Rails entirely—but given the size of our codebase and the velocity with which we’re moving, most of these weren’t immediately feasible. We needed a build system that would allow us to parallelize our test suite so that the real time taken to run the suite was manageable.

          Our SRE team went through several different continuous integration solutions in the last year before settling on Solano.

          Each of the previous systems had some issue: instability, memory consumption, poor DB management, poor parallelization, painful web UI, you name it. What Solano gives us is an on-premise solution with excellent native support for fanning out tests to multiple threads, running them in parallel, and then assembling the results. It has a great web UI, CLI support, and impressive performance. Since we started using it, our deploy workflow has grown noticeably faster, and the number of wails and anguished GIFs from frustrated engineers is at an all-time low."
