Challenges in setting up remote Test Lab
Storage and Virtualization technology is evolving at a faster speed with new products and features. To ensure smooth performance and up-to-date support for elements integrated within data centers, testing is extremely important for e.g. interoperability of multiple new devices. Remote Test Lab is an important way to test multiple products. However, it also attracts unique challenges.
- Budget constraints for shipping hardware offshore
- Software Vendors need their product to be tested against vast matrix of platforms and interoperable applications
- Heterogeneous OS and Application Environment need bulk licensing that can not be transferred offshore
- Optimized usage of hardware resources
- Reduced compatibility testing time
- Saved shipment and licensing costs of Systems / Apps
