Test Environment Management in Cloud
Testing Environment Management (TEM) is the best available option for organizations that require enterprise class solutions for rapid set-up, provisioning and teardown of virtual hardware for managing test environments.
CSC’s TEM in Cloud is a 'As-a-Service' offering that offers elastic IT resources required for test environment in a controlled and secure environment.
CSC's TEM in Cloud provides test environments (for Testing Custom, Business and Enterprise Applications) through on-demand test labs that are virtualizable, scalable and provides management of multi-platform environments. It includes Environment Virtualization, Service virtualization at the infrastructure level, standard operating images, and any of the VMWARE combatable images can be rapidly provisioned in the cloud. It can be turned on and off and scaled up or down as needed. Unlike physical test environment labs, TEM in Cloud decouples the complexity of Test Environment configuration and Test Environment capacity leveraging cloud enabling to deliver clients access to test environments on demand with no resource constraints and eliminating capital expenditure.
CSC's TEM in Cloud is a test environment that is built upon compute and storage infrastructure along with orchestration software layer for Virtualization. The environment is a multi-tenant environment.
Key components of the solution are summarized below:
- On-Demand Test Lab – Create , Provision, snapshot, or suspend environments ,share single server or an entire configuration globally
- Test Environment Administration - Upload VMs and software to replicate test environments, deploy tool licenses as needed
- Sandbox – Library of frequently used images ( OS , DB ..), Tools ( Testing tools – functional, performance , security , mobile)
Benefits of CSC's TEM in Cloud:
- Move from Capital Expense(CAPEX) to Operational Expense (OPEX)
- Reusable compute capacity for Innovation and Agility
- Do more with less, focus on core capabilities
- Efficient Management of Test Environment
- Management of very Large and Complex Test Environment
- Leading change with New Technologies (Mobile, Social collaboration, Big Data etc.)
