A Love Letter from Cloud Dev/Test Labs to Service Virtualization
by Jason English
In the spirit of Valentine's Day, here's a little love letter from "the
Cloud" that originally appeared in our partner Parasoft's perspective guide
to Service Virtualization. But we think it's especially appropriate now.
Enjoy! - N.W., Ed.
Hey, I know it’s been a while since we started being “a thing.” When we
met, everyone said you were just mocking, and that I wasn’t real enough to
make a living, with my head in the clouds. Yet, here we are, a few years
Service Virtualization, you complete me.
As a young Dev/Test Cloud, I always wanted to try new things. And what better
use for Cloud than experimenting with software for startup companies? I was
flexible, I thought I had the capacity to handle anything. I’d stay up all
night studying or partying, but sometimes I’d c... (more)
Lee Orrick from F5 sits down to discuss how F5 made the decision to move
their training to the cloud, in order to relieve some of the pain
points—cost, time away from work, shipping of hardware around the
world—from their business. Learn how F5 ensured the cloud would provide the
legal coverage, licensing issues, and security before making the transition.

In December 2012, research firm Coleman Parkes released a landmark study
about the business benefits of service virtualization. The findings were
significant: 60% of the respondents indicated that unavailability of systems
for testing routinely caused software projects to be delivered late.
Furthermore, 70% of those surveyed said their firms were releasing
applications with reduced functionality as a result. Fast forward to July
2013, and ... (more)
Skytap is a big believer in open source software. Our company is built on
amazing open source projects like Linux, Ruby on Rails and Node.js. That’s
why we feel it’s so important to give back to the open source community by
releasing and maintaining the MinorJS project.
What is MinorJS?
MinorJS is an unopinionated, ultra-minimal web framework that alleviates the
pain of routing, testing, and deployment clustering for Node.js applications.
By starting with MinorJS you maintain the freedom to develop your application
with whichever technologies and philosophies you fin... (more)
History has shown that most sex tapes that have been publicly released,
whether both parties intended them for our viewing or not, are often far less
sexy than the on-camera talent likely envisioned.
Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel’s Sex Tape, released in theatres last Friday,
unfortunately keeps this tradition firmly intact.
Techies have been quick to call foul on the film’s doubtful premise of a
sex tape being “accidentally” uploaded to the cloud and then
