Customers often ask “Where do we Start” when setting up and configuring their DevTest architecture. Of course, this really depends on how they plan to use DevTest - whether using Virtual Services or running tests or maybe a combination of both. So based on potential usage of DevTest, the DevOps SWAT team has started building a Best Practice Architecture Guide based on real world deployments. As a part of this initiative, we will build out several architectures that are implemented by either customers or CA Services or are new/tested architectures that fit a specific need.
Our intention is to provide options for customers, partners and CA Services on how to implement DevTest within their environment to meet the specific use cases. This document will contain guidance on implementing DevTest on premise, in private or public clouds or hybrid environments.
This first edition walks through setting up DevTest 8.4 in a hybrid environment, meaning that some DevTest components are installed on premise (on physical systems or in private cloud) and others are installed in public cloud, namely in Microsoft(R) Windows Azure (Azure).
