The general consensus tends to be that in the world of agile and DevOps, ITSM teams are increasingly being left behind. But the truth is, in more forward-thinking IT organizations, this isn’t the case. The fact is that ITSM is playing, or at least should play, a growing role in support of agile and DevOps initiatives. But this role still remains limited due to the fact that DevOps teams, and their management, are (more often than not) leaving them out as a tool of choice ...
Rookout announced a production debugger for AWS Lambda, Amazon's leading serverless computing platform. Software engineers will be able to painlessly debug their live serverless functions.
Rookout works like a debugger on the live serverless code on Lambda in production. Using its friendly IDE, a developer can simply click on the part of code they want to instrument and then get a full stack trace or any variable state, all from the live code without stopping or changing anything in the environment. Rookout offers visibility to serverless code and how it actually behaves in the real world, not just in a simulated environment.
"Serverless is a natural evolution path for cloud computing," said Rookout co-founder and CEO Or Weis. "But it presents new challenges when it comes to debugging. Rookout lifts the veil and lets developers get full debug data from their production Lambda functions while they run serverlessly."
"The sheer speed of serverless development means that complex bugs occur in production," said Liran Haimovitch, Rookout co-founder and CTO. "Bugs happen, and they cost a lot of money. Now with Rookout, serverless doesn't have to be a black box; developers can see inside Lambda and find out exactly what's really happening in production, letting them take full advantage of the new serverless infrastructures."
