Isolated Environments Enhance Testing

Every code branch automatically has its own custom, isolated environment with Tugboat. Developers can mix-and-match any combination of service versions or branches on-the-fly to create their environment, without reconfiguring the application.

Designed for Developers

Complex deployments used to require an entire DevOps team. Welcome to declarative infrastructure and services for just about every frontend and backend framework under the Linux sun.

Infrastructure as code. There’s no deployment process to learn with Tugboat—your team works right in Git, declaring the infrastructure services you need when you need them. Hasta la vista, config drift!

Elegant and flexible developer tools galore! Interact with Tugboat from your terminal with the CLI, or send API requests to integrate a larger workflow. Or shell into a service straight from the dashboard.

Whatever floats your boat.

Your very own boat.

Okay, not a real boat, but all Premium plans do ship with your very own dedicated instance of Tugboat for even faster build times. Premium plans offer 400x more storage space for Previews and 24x more processing power than our highest consumer tier.

Premium Automated Testing
All Premium plans come with the ability to generate audits and issue scores for accessibility, performance, best practices, and SEO.

And you'll have peace of mind with additional support and security - built in.

Premium: On-Premise

Tugboat On-Premise is hosted on your own infrastructure, be that BlackMesh, AWS, IBM Cloud, or even your organization’s in-house servers.  This Premium option is the perfect solution for organizations that need to host Tugboat in their own data center.

With an On-Premise install:

  • Tugboat runs on your own infrastructure, behind your firewall.
  • You’ll have full control over security.
  • Virtually unlimited storage and horsepower - you can have it all.

When your organization does not allow externally-hosted services or operates in highly regulated areas, or must achieve additional security regulations, Premium On-Premise Tugboat is the perfect solution. And, we now offer FedRAMP-hosted instances of Tugboat for government organizations, through our partnership with BlackMesh.

Does Tugboat work with my git provider?

Does Tugboat offer a GitHub, GitLab, or Bitbucket integration?

Yes! Tugboat integrations with GitHub, GitLab and Bitbucket enable you to automatically build and delete on-demand staging environments when you open or close a pull request or merge request. These integrations can also post a link to your git provider’s ticket, or offer a View deployment button right in the git ticket, depending on the provider.

What about Enterprise?

Tugboat works with dedicated hardware, and we even offer an on-premise Tugboat if your organization would prefer to run Tugboat on your own infrastructure.

Can I use Tugboat with my self-hosted git repositories?

Yes! You can sign into Tugboat using an email address, and link to a git URL to add self-hosted git repositories to your Tugboat project.

Does Tugboat work with my hosting provider?

Can I use Tugboat with Acquia Cloud, Pantheon?

Yes! We’ve got clients using many providers. We’ve even got a tutorial to get you up and running with Pantheon and Tugboat.

Can I use Tugboat with Heroku, AWS or some other cloud-hosting provider?

Yes! Tugboat is hosting-provider agnostic; you can set up Tugboat deployment Previews independent of your host. If your code is in git, you can use Tugboat. We offer integrations with GitHub, GitLab, and Bitbucket; these integrations enable you to automatically build and delete on-demand staging environments when a pull request or merge request is opened or closed. We also offer a generic git option; if you don’t want to authenticate Tugboat with a git provider, you can still link to a generic git repository and manually build Tugboat Previews.

Does Tugboat provide production-level hosting?

No. Tugboat Previews are intended to be short-lived. We don’t offer the support guarantees or stability required to host a production application.

How does Tugboat work with my infrastructure?

Can I use my own Docker images with Tugboat?

Yes! You can call service images from Docker Hub or other Docker registries, and you can even use non-public images; Tugboat enables authentication with Docker registries from within Repository Settings. There’s one caveat, though; Tugboat doesn’t work with images that contain volumes, but we’re happy to point you at resources to make your own images without volumes.

Can I build Tugboat staging environments using my latest database?

Yes! We’ve got a starter config to help you import a MySQL database, and we support official Tugboat images for CouchDB, MariaDB, MongoDB, MySQL, Percona, PostgreSQL, and Redis. If you need an image for a different database, just let us know; we regularly add new images based on customer needs.

To keep your database up-to-date, Tugboat offers the option to automatically refresh Base Previews at a time and interval you specify. If you take a database dump nightly, and want that database in your Tugboat Previews, you can have Tugboat refresh Base Previews every night after the new database dump is created.

Language & frameworks

Does Tugboat work with my language or framework?

Probably. Tugboat supports pretty much anything that can run on Linux. Docker provides official images for Ruby, Python, PHP, Go, and Rust (as well as many more). If it has a Docker image, and it doesn’t require volumes, you can use Tugboat to generate on-demand staging environments.Tugboat offers tutorials and starter config files for popular web frameworks, including: Drupal 7, Drupal 8, WordPress, and Hugo, and we regularly add new starter configs.

Billing

How does billing work?

Yes! We’ve got a starter config to help you import a MySQL database, and we support official Tugboat images for CouchDB, MariaDB, MongoDB, MySQL, Percona, PostgreSQL, and Redis. If you need an image for a different database, just let us know; we regularly add new images based on customer needs.

If you take a database dump nightly, and want that database in your Tugboat Previews, you can have Tugboat refresh Base Previews every night after the new database dump is created.

What I love about Tugboat is how much it increases our velocity. It allows us to bring in stakeholders to review work well before new code goes to production.
