Test & dev is crucial for ensuring your code is ready for prime time — but it can be costly and complex to create and manage your own development, staging, and production environments.
Your options are :

  • Dedicated Infrastructure provides consistent performance and security.
  • Public/Private Cloud, Let you quickly create a test and deveoplment enviornment.
  • We will setup following Traditional Dev. Enviornments for Software companies very quickly.

Development

Cloud Development EnvironmentOptional. This is the working environment for individual developers or small teams. Working in isolation with the rest of the tiers, the developer(s) can try radical changes to the code without adversely affecting the rest of the development team.

Integration

Cloud IntegrationA common environment where all developers commit code changes. The goal of this environment is to combine and validate the work of the entire project team so it can be tested before being promoted to the Staging Environment. It is possible for Development and Integration to be the same environment (as in the case where the developer does not use a local copy of the source code).

Staging

Cloud Staging EnvironmentThe staging tier is a environment that is as identical to the production environment as possible. The purpose of the Staging environment is to simulate as much of the Production environment as possible. The Staging environment can also double as a Demonstration/Training environment.

Production

Cloud Production EnvironmentThe production tier might include a single machine or a huge cluster comprising many machines.
These tiers speak of “environments” rather than “machines” or “servers.” It is certainly possible for multiple Development environments and the Integration environment to be on the same physical machine, or the Integration and Staging environments to be on the same machine. If at all possible, the Production environment should be by itself and not shared with any of the other environments.
