  • Michael
  • Goal of this webinar is to have you go beyond 'talking' about the cloud to 'executing' on the cloud … Have you leave this webinar and start a project We’ll show you the steps and a demo to launch a test & dev cloud environment Right after Michael talks through the agenda, Ed will give a “bling”, Michael will pass presenter to Ed for a minute, then take control again.
  • With Rightscale, you choose your test and dev environment… not constrained like in PAAS to what they pick… Also, complete transparency for easy troubleshooting…
  • Some of the test scenarios implemented by customers using RightScale include: * Load testing using synthetically generated traffic (see diagram) * Regression testing * Performance testing * System integration & component testing Manage clusters of servers that work together Monitoring & triggers for deployment-wide events and performance Versioning & rollback Clone deployments
  • Loosely coupled automation architecture
