HP Service Virtualization software allows developers and testers
access to limited or unavailable services in a simulated, virtual
environment. This helps application teams lower costs and reduce
testing times by finding defects earlier in the application life cycle
when they are easier, faster and less expensive to fix.
Containers have become the new infrastructure
standard for development teams. While the DIY
container approach (un-orchestrated containers)
still has its use cases (e.g. low latency, longer
compute jobs, predictable traffic), production-grade
deployments require orchestration. DevOps teams
are increasingly leveraging the benefits of Kubernetes
and accelerating its adoption, taking it from a 27%
adoption rate in 2018 to a 48% adoption rate in 2019
according to the RightScale 2019 State of the Cloud
Report, from Flexera. The same report also positions
Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS)
as one of the fastest-growing managed Kubernetes
offerings available, with a 44% adoption rate.
Previously, containers were a technology deployed
by individual teams and were typically used for
application testing in the enterprise world. Today,
many organizations are now not only seeing the
benefits of operationalizing containers to deploy
production applications, but also re-positioni
