Virtual Test Environments
Posted on 2011-10-28
Im looking for some opinions on the following.
We are looking at creating an environment for our developers and testers where they can create and manage isolated test environments. Mainly for Windows VMs. For example, they can have a replica of a production server, plus create XP/Win7 VMs at will.
It would be nice if they can do this on demand via a portal but without allowing them too much management access. i.e. we limit what templates they can replicate, how many VMs they can create etc
I have looked at Lab Manager and that seems to cover the requirements however i believe its discontinued. VCloud Director i presume would cover the same thing. I havent set this up or tested it as the we dont have the resources needed at the moment purely for an evaluation.
Does anyone use this?
Any advice appreciated
