Qa Setup A Qa Environment In 30 Seconds Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Setup a QA Environment in 30 seconds ?! Eran Brown Systems Engineer – Strategic Accounts NetApp Israel
  • 2. Agenda
    • The QA Challenge (Test & Dev)
    • How infrastructure is delaying QA
    • How should infrastructure cut QA times
    • Case study – Pelephone (Database)
    • Case Study – IT Structures (VM)
  • 3. The QA Challenge
    • Time, Time, Time
    • Money, Money, Money
    • Parallel testing = Shorter times = More copies
      • = Higher costs
    • Isolated environments
    • Lack of capacity = compromising test process
    • Freeze scenarios
    • Freeze an older version for further analysis
    • Backup QA work
    • Update frequency
  • 4. How infrastructure is delaying QA
    • Copying data is a heavy process
    • Mostly done through the host
    • Host & Storage are overloaded
    • Long creation times
    • Long refresh times
    • Cloning during the day – recommended ?!
    • Backup is a heavy process
      • Requires more expensive storage
    • Storage Maintenance stops QA
  • 5. How should infrastructure cut QA times
    • Offload clone creation to the storage
    • Use smart copies
      • Smart
      • Thin
      • Instant
    • Offload backup processes to the storage
      • Instant backups (snapshots)
      • Instant recovery / refresh of the environment
    • Seamless migration of workload for maintenance
  • 6. Case Study: Pelephone IT © 2008 NetApp. All rights reserved.
  • 7. Case Study – Pelephone
    • The Challenge:
      • Oracle Applications, 3TB (Non-NetApp)
      • High-end storage, very expensive
      • Only 1 Clone for Test & Dev
      • 15 developers working on the same copy…
      • Wanted a copy per developer for isolation
      • 45TB ~ 180K$ !!!
      • 45TB Copies take weeks
  • 8. Case Study – Pelephone – The solution
    • Only 1 full copy on NetApp (3TB)
    • 21 Test & Dev Copies
    • Total consumed capacity: 8.1TB !!!
      • 1/5 the Storage footprint of traditional solution
    • Clone creation time: 10 minutes
    • Data update: nightly
    • Data Refresh time: <5 minutes
    • Backups: Ed-Hoc
    • Errors can be saved and sent to dev team.
    • Oldest copy: 14 months.
  • 9. Case Study – Pelephone – Data layout
  • 10. Case Study: IT Structures © 2008 NetApp. All rights reserved.
  • 11. Case Study – IT Structures
    • Lab-on-demand cloud service provider
    • Used for both Test/Dev and Demo purposes
    • The challenge:
      • Each lab is a collection of virtual servers
      • Need to clone each lab 10’s of times
      • Clone must be instant – User is waiting online
      • Number of labs varies over time
      • Performance is key to success
  • 12. Case Study – IT Structures – The solution
    • NetApp supported the customer through the re-architecture process (protocol changes)
    • The storage system provides cloning
    • NetApp Cloning is now integrated in the product
    • Labs are turned on within seconds
    • boot time is cut short by efficient caching
    • Increased number of cloning processes
    • Serving more clients on the same platform
