We've got two webinars coming up in June that we wanted to take a minute
to make you aware of. And while we encourage you to attend them live so that
you have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have, each will be made
available on-demand after the fact so that you and your teams can view them
at your convenience.
Hope to see you there!

A top focus for application development today is on acceleration, but
faster is not always better. The bigger challenge is to improve the speed and
quality of software releases. By utilizing virtualization technology in the
SDLC, specifically service virtualization and virtual dev/test labs,
companies can increase test coverage in less time and ultimately produce
better software faster.
Parasoft service virtualization enables dev/test teams to test earlier and
test less using simulated, virtual environments. This solution closes the gap
with incomplete dev/test environments an... (more)
We might start seeing a decline in the number of articles that simply
state that cloud computing is “on the rise.” Of course it is.
Forrester’s James Staten recently pointed out that that with all of the
advantages that cloud computing provides, “it will increasingly be
difficult to justify not leveraging cloud services.”
Staten does describe the “hypergrowth” that cloud computing is currently
experiencing, but he takes it a very necessary step further by detailing what
specific aspects of the cloud are providing the greatest value, and are
thereby experiencing the most success... (more)
Skytap recently announced the availability of a Docker template in the Skytap
Cloud Public Template Library. Docker is an open platform for developers
and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications. This new
template allows you to easily experiment with or deploy Docker-based
containers within Skytap Cloud.
To illustrate this, we’ll do the following: 1.Create a new Skytap Cloud
environment or configuration that is based on this Docker template. 2.Deploy
a Docker Ubuntu container and demonstrate a simple use case as described in
the Docker User Guide. 3.Create a n... (more)
A consistent theme here at VMworld 2014 has been development and testing.
Specifically, how IT operations can deliver the development, test, continuous
integration, staging, and ultimately production environments that software
development and QA teams rely on. VMware announced tight integration with
OpenStack in the hopes of, at least partly, helping their customers better
meet the demanding needs of internal development and test teams.
Sumit Amar and Sameer Abrol of Electronic Arts told a compelling story of how
they are leveraging VMware’s vCloud Automation Center and vCloud
