IBM Expands Cloud-based Development and Testing Environment with Windows Support
In an effort to better serve the development teams, IBM (www.ibm.com) has extended its smart business development and testing on IBM Cloud, adding support for Windows platforms and other new enhancements.
Announced earlier this year, the IBM Smart Business Development and Testing of the IBM Cloud, which allows enterprise customers to expand and improve its internal development and testing processes using IBM’s infrastructure. According to its announcement on Thursday, the multi-tenant open tag now includes support for Microsoft Windows 2003 and 2008 editions of the Data Center.
IBM said it is expanding its development environment to help the company more developers to take advantage of the cloud development and testing, which will increase in importance as a recent survey found that developers cloud computing and mobile expected to emerge over the next five years as the most platforms in the demand for application software development and IT delivery.
In addressing this need, IBM has added a variety of resources for users of Smart Business Development and testing including performance and additional flexibility to help developers quickly set up and easy sharing environments through the development teams to implement more consistent application.
Additionally, you can assign multiple Internet Protocol addresses to a single virtual instance, so they can implement security zones and improve availability in the cloud of IBM. You can also connect combinations of storage sizes to a virtual instance at the time of provisioning for increased performance and flexibility.
IBM is also integrating the development and testing environment, with new software and services, allowing developers to improve the quality and speed of their applications through their life cycle.
One of these services is IBM testing services for the cloud, which brings the tools of automation and performance testing to identify defects in the previous cycle which are less expensive to correct and eliminate the barriers related to performance. This application performance testing, according to IBM, can help significantly reduce the time up to 50 percent.
Another interesting service is a technical preview of IBM Rational test load on IBM Cloud, which helps address issues with the acquisition of infrastructure, maintenance and configuration of performance tests on a large scale. Allows users to automatically provision virtual testing agents and virtual users in IBM Smart Business development and testing of the IBM Cloud in the cost of “pay-as-you-go, significantly reducing the infrastructure, software and test established.
Smart Business Development and Testing of the IBM Cloud is now available in North America and Europe with the Raleigh, North Carolina, USA and Ehningen, Germany data center in support of IBM clouds.
