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

slide6
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

Stage Management

Streamline and optimize pre-production resources and processes

  • Key Capabilities:
  • Automate IT Service Delivery:Promote software configurations between stages of the release process
  • Patch and Testing:
  • Make a clone of a production and deploy the clone to the earlier stages
  • Historical Archiving: Archive and quickly restore configurations for audit and debugging
  • Benefits:
  • Reduce time spent rolling out services
  • Accelerate the processes of pre-production
  • Ensure consistency between stages of the release process
  • Reduce infrastructure costs
