  2. 2. Virtualization paradigm <ul><li>Apps + OS + hardware = data file </li></ul><ul><li>Server provisioning copy file </li></ul><ul><li>Server migration data migration </li></ul><ul><li>Additional management responsibilities for a virtual server: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Copying/Cloning </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Versioning </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Archival </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Read/Write </li></ul></ul>
  3. 3. Next generation virtualization challenges <ul><li>Server sprawl </li></ul><ul><ul><li>server-to-staff ratios exceed 7:1 in some cases </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Lack of change tracking and hence, security </li></ul><ul><ul><li>No information on the source of an attack </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Which all machines are under risks </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Setup and provisioning overhead </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Repetitive system setup tasks overwhelm IT and slow down software development cycles </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Accounts for more than 50% of time expended in the dev/test cycle </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Costly system failure </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Difficult to reproduce and resolve software defects before production deployment </li></ul></ul>

  7. 7. How does Colama help IT organization Traditional IT request processing IT helpdesk IT personnel allocation Hardware allocation Install Configure Colama enabled IT request processing Start IT request cycle End IT cycle <ul><li>90% reduction of IT request processing time </li></ul><ul><li>Increased enterprise IT capacity </li></ul>Send the box to requester’s desk Use the config. IT helpdesk Provisioning using web browser Use the config.
  8. 8. How does Colama help QA organization Traditional QA cycle Planning + strategy Create/build test cases Request hardware Build test environment Run and report Planning + strategy Run and report Create/build test cases Colama enabled QA cycle Application available Start QA cycle End QA cycle Colama Lab Management 70% reduction of application and QA cycle time by test environment consolidation and sharing
  9. 9. Traditional bug life cycle QA opens bug status: NEW Dev fixes bug Status: fixed N Y Works for dev QA closes bug Status: verified, closed N Does not work for QA Y Dev reproduces bug? QA verified bug? Steps for reproducing bug Steps for verifying bug
  10. 10. 1. QA opens bug 2. Checks in VM (ver 1) snapshot Bug status: NEW 1. Dev checks out VM 2. Dev fixes bug 3. Checks in the VM (ver 2) with a tag highlighting the fix Bug status: fixed Colama enabled bug life cycle: up to 90% reduction 1. QA checks out tagged VM 2. QA verifies bug Bug status: verified, closed <ul><li>Colama features in use: </li></ul><ul><li>check in/out </li></ul><ul><li>Version control </li></ul><ul><li>Tagging </li></ul><ul><li>Storage optimization </li></ul><ul><li>- Near zero storage impact for multiple revisions. </li></ul><ul><li>5.
