Workshop Of The Test Lab Telescopes


There's a new riff in the cloud developer space. Parasoft is playing its service virtualization and API testing know-how in harmony with Skytap's cloud application development environment. The firms are announcing a joint offering intended to enable service virtualization and test lab management in the cloud.

The solution sets out to provide on-demand access to complete (and complex) test environments by using existing virtualized environments as well as simulating non-virtualized infrastructure (including mainframes and external services) to more closely mirror real production environments.

"[The truth is that] 'access' remains one of the most daunting barriers to SDLC acceleration," stated Wayne Ariola, chief strategy officer for Parasoft Corporation. "Whether we're talking about access to dev/test environments or access to dependent applications, the ability to pull all the required pieces together in order to test thoroughly is equivalent to herding feral cats. The Parasoft-Skytap partnership delivers ubiquitous, global access to complete dev/test environments, allowing organizations to deliver software faster, with reduced business risk."

"Development and QA teams struggle to gain access to two types of environments: dev/test environments for the application under test and access to the systems the application under test is dependent upon," said Brian White, VP of products at Skytap. "With the integrated solution, Skytap Cloud and Parasoft Service Virtualization now offer a complete solution to cloud testing that eliminates the largest constraints that dev/test teams face today."
