SANTA BARBARA, CA--(Marketwire - Nov 15, 2012) - Eucalyptus Systems, the leading provider of private and hybrid cloud computing software, today announced several new resources that empower customers with best practices for transforming development and test initiatives through cloud computing. A case study on Mosaik Solutions, the global source for geospatial network intelligence, and a white paper, "Achieving Agility in Dev and Test: Securing the beachhead for your cloud journey" highlight how to define and design an agile development and test cloud based on decisions that will deliver near-term benefits and long-term business success.
Many organizations begin their development and test journey by deploying a private cloud, with a long-term goal of creating a hybrid environment to decrease costs and increase performance and agility. At the same time, organizations struggle to prioritize the divide between development teams, which are driven by speed, and IT operations teams, which are focused on control. Building a development and test cloud is a means to bridge this divide and strategically plan ahead for the future.
The white paper and accompanying blog entry offer essential information for planning an ideal development and test cloud including how to choose the right architecture, and best practices for planning a cloud deployment. The white paper dives into key considerations for companies beginning their cloud journey such as securing executive sponsorship, starting small, and designing a cloud deployment with flexibility in mind.
After conducting a thorough evaluation of the cloud computing landscape, Mosaik Solutions chose Eucalyptus' cloud computing software as the foundation for its development and test environment. Mosaik selected Eucalyptus based on its scalability, compatibility with AWS, and the ability to provision cloud servers via Chef.
"Successfully deploying a cloud requires steadfast planning with the end goal in mind," said Brady Murray, vice president of alliances at Eucalyptus. "Your earliest decisions can substantially impact the end result. It's critically important to enter your early development and test strategies with a clear view of your full lifecycle aspirations."
