SkyHopper is an OpenSource Software (OSS) that enables the continuous integration of the system in accordance with the idea of open-source DevOps (delivery time and quality improvement).
Has been able to totally support the operation and system construction which has a system configuration that combines with the following DevOps tool.

  • Service Dashboard

    There is no need for the control panel of AWS to carry out day-to-day tasks. Monitoring and backup was added in one place to test the infrastructure that are necessary for the operations, Such as vulnerability checking and response, which is manage by the service unit.

  • Encoding support for system configuration and application framework

    Encoding is required in order to shorten the system construction man-hours. You can also create an environment that can washed out the prior problems by creating a flow by applying the tested code to production.

  • Easy set up and registration of monitoring tools

    Monitoring registration is mandatory in order to continue maintaining the service. However, the people will have difficulties if they aren't familiar with all of the monitoring systems in doing some operation. Therefore, we implemented an interface that can easily adjust to the user needs.

  • System Health Check Features

    This is harder than I thought to check whether or not the service environment is ready to request specifications. It is also becomes difficult when chasing after changes. That's why it is easy to test when there is a Integrated framework solution. We implemented the interface that can easily adjust during registration and change.

  • Multi-tenant

    It is possible to register multiple users that can use multiple AWS accounts, SSH keys, and to take on multiple projects at the same time.

  • Operation Recording

    Always checks the login history, infrastructure and middleware operation, including the success or failure of the test which is stored in DB. Keeps the relief operations remain in the record.
