Transcript of "Virtualization impact in software testing"

  1. 1. byParthasarathi T
  2. 2. Agenta:  Virtualization infrastructure & Virtual Appliances  Virtualization technical benefits in software testing  Risks and security concerns  Mitigation and Testing Approaches
  3. 3. Virtualization infrastructure:  Server or platform virtualization  Storage virtualization  Network virtualization Virtual Appliances: • A virtual appliance is a virtual machine image designed to run on a virtualization platform (e.g., VirtualBox, Xen, VMware Workstation, Parallels Workstation)
  4. 4. Virtualization technical benefits  Easy environment administration  Duplicating / recreating intermittent problems  Agile deployment / testing  Portability (Moving / Copying VMs)  Snap shot  Server consolidation  Testing of software concurrently  Disaster management  Many more…
  5. 5. Virtualization Challenges  Hardware Limitation  Virtual driver unavailability  Hardware network implementation / deployment  Hardware watchdog  Hardware clock  Serial console not available  VLAN support / other network related service support  Directly export ovf file for Virtual appliance  Availability of test automation tools  Resource constraints  Performance testing  Hardware compatibility testing
  6. 6. Mitigation  Assessing Infrastructure Risks  Assessing Features Risks  Test plans and for Virtual Test requirements  Naming convention for VMs  Base images granularity analysis  Network and its related services identification & address conventions  Test data preparation
  7. 7. Mitigation (cont..)  Establish a base library of images  Create a Library of ISO files  Manage virtual machines as if they were physical machines  configure anti-spyware / anti-malware exceptions ◦ *.vhd, *.vud, *.vsv, *.iso  Managing Performance  Monitoring Approach  Getting Virtual edition software  Implementing Service Virtualization  Assessing Management Risks
