Manage Non-Cloud Dev+Test Environment With a Cloud Hat On

In response to accelerated release cycles, a new set of testing capabilities is now required to deliver quality at speed. This is why there is a shake-up in the testing tools landscape—and a new leader has emerged in the just released Gartner Magic Quadrant for Software Test Automation.

Over the years I've moved from Production to Test to Development and back to Production.

This presentation is a summary of my learnings along the way:

  • After running larger production environments I wondered how it would be different in the cloud
  • What would be extra if you already have configmt, continouous delivery etc..
  • I learned that selfservicing and API's can make a huge difference
  • and I plea for more IT companies to apply these principles in their internal IT.
  • not only for machine provisioning , but also for logging, monitoring, etc ..

Here's my presentation from cloudcamp Ghent 2011 that was brilliantly organized by Frederik Van Hecke
