Virtual Lab Automation and Stage Management Drivers

How virtualization improves your business

  • Improve Resource Utilization

  • Underutilized and disorganized physical and human resources

  • Lab hardware sprawl, redundant resources for development and testing

  • Unnecessary lab costs for space, redundant hardware, cooling, and power

  • Reduce Time to Set Up, Tear Down, and Provision

  • Time expense – repetitive system setup, provisioning, and configuration

  • Improve Services and Application Quality

  • Labs and staging exist to ensure readiness for production

  • Untested applications, upgrades, and fixes break production systems

  • Difficulties reproducing, diagnosing, and correcting software defects

  • Enhance Availability

  • Minimize costly system failure and downtime

The Role of a Virtualization Infrastructure The required foundation for lab automation and stage management

  • Enablesflexible hardware resource allocation and management through server/storage consolidation with virtualization

  • Provides high availability

  • Enables core capabilities for lab

    automation and stage management

    • Rapid provisioning

    • Multi-machine configuration

    • Snapshot and library management

    • Automated archiving

The Role of a Virtualization Infrastructure (continued)An enabler of lab automation and stage management

Physical Environment Challenges

Virtualized and Automated

Environment

  • Provision complex multi-machine configurations in seconds using shared machine templates

  • Difficult to set up and tear down complex, multi-machine application configurations, and long provisioning times

Provisioning

  • Multi-tier applications running on shared servers/storage based on network fencing

  • Unable to perform multi-machine configurations as it would result in networking conflicts

Multi-machine Configuration

  • Snapshot complex multi-machine configurations

  • Maintain a library for sharing and troubleshooting

  • Unable to take multi-machine configurations and share among teams

Snapshot

  • Need to archive each component

  • Easy to archive multi-machine configurations and keep an auditable history

Automated
