Calypso turned to Skytap to create agile IT environments for its development, QA and support teams. Skytap’s scalability and ease-of-use made it an ideal solution for Tim Murphy, director of engineering at Calypso.
“Skytap has made the provisioning process very simple, which is incredibly important to us. I’ve used several other cloud services, but they only offer big toolboxes where you are responsible for building out and customizing the infrastructure to your specific needs,” said Murphy.
With Skytap’s on-demand, self-service environments, Calypso engineers can run applications without code or architectural changes, and distributed teams can continue to leverage existing tools and development practices. Skytap also provides the ability to create identical copies of development and test stacks, and collaborate on customers’ specific issues using a simple Skytap URL.
