Configured for success
Our configuration management skills were put to work as we created a virtualised test environment, avoiding downtime but providing the flexible computing power they needed.
Our client needed to do more, with less. They wanted to create a new test environment and simultaneously migrate existing test environments to virtual machines in order to consolidate their hardware resources and decommission legacy hardware.
Knowing that development speed is often impaired by lack of effective configuration and infrastructure management, our client saw the value in having dedicated resources to address these challenges, leaving developers free to develop.
To create the new test environment, and in keeping with the client’s lean toward virtualisation, the solution was to virtualise an existing test environment. We used the P2V VMWare convertor and then customised the operating system configuration and application environment to create the new environment. The P2V VMWare convertor was then employed to virtualise each current test environment.
The migrations were performed seamlessly in two stages, minimising downtime and impact on the test team, and also the development effort.
