DevOps for Testing – How we accelerated projects using automation and virtualization

DevOps for Testing – How we accelerated projects using automation and virtualization

“This code works fine on my computer, but not on the live server!”, programmers often complain to IT system administrators. This happens when the environments in these servers do not match. As a result, projects often get delayed.

To avoid compatibility issues, development and production server software has to be identical. DevOps aims to achieve this using configuration management and automated deployment.

With our DevOps service plan, Bobcares helps businesses deliver projects on time. We automate the DevOps cycle for fast deployment of application code on the servers. We help to create and maintain a uniform configuration for different server environments.
