Feature-Rich, Self-Service Environments
Skytap Cloud makes faster cycle times possible with immediate access to accurate models of production systems.
|Blended Environments||Template||Clone||Share||Auto-Suspend||Delete||VPN and NAT|
|For Dev||Combine AIX, VMware, and containers for end to end testing||Access resources anytime, anywhere without submitting a ticket||Eliminate configuration drift with identical environments||Enable “follow the sun development” and faster defect triage||Pause and return to environments always in their most current state||Easily delete environments when no longer needed||Connect to components in other clouds or on-premises datacenters
|For Ops||Provide self-service while governing|
access and utilization
|Configure environments once, then save for future provisioning||Reduce infrastructure capacity requirements||Enable global collaboration across teams||Utilize capacity only when environments are in use||Eliminate environment hoarding and idle infrastructure||Securely connect environments with external networks|
Enable Parallel Development and Test Streams
Adopting DevOps at scale requires development and testing teams to parallel process more work in less time. With Skytap Cloud, development and test teams can access environment templates and resources instantaneously. Environments can be cloned again and again, so development and testing can be spread across any number of identical environments at the same time. Development teams can divide work among the cloned environments and then delete them when work is complete, minimizing resource costs.
Integrates With Your Existing Tooling
DevOps adoption brings monumental changes to the processes and culture in any organization. To increase trust and buy-in from those teams affected, Skytap Cloud’s powerful API and command-line interface makes custom toolchain integrations a snap.
Our customers integrate a wide range of popular open source infrastructure-as-code tools with Skytap Cloud, including Jenkins, Ansible, Vagrant, as well as tools from Microsoft and IBM. You can also practice deployments into production environment replicas with Skytap Cloud integrations into CA release automation and IBM UrbanCode Deploy.
Skytap Cloud’s REST API enables you to automate any feature of our cloud. Simple code commands can be used to spin up and clone environment templates, configure new environments, deploy applications changes, and much more.
Because we mirror your on-premises data center, you can easily test automated production deployments in Skytap Cloud, then execute those deployments in on-premises production.
