Optimizing Infrastructure for Software Testing Using Virtualization

Virtualization technology and cloud computing have brought a paradigm shift in the way the authors utilize, deploy and manage computer resources. They allow fast deployment of multiple operating system as containers on physical machines which can be either discarded after use or checkpointed for later re-deployment. At European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), they have been using virtualization technology to quickly setup virtual machines for their developers with pre-configured software to enable them to quickly test/deploy a new version of a software patch for a given application.
