Test Dev Environment

Hybrid Sandboxing – Create the Ultimate Test Dev Environment

Last week I published some of the VMworld vCloud Air sessions that were released on YouTube.  You can watch all the VMworld vCloud Air sessions by clicking here. However, I have just found out that my favourite session from VMworld has just been released on YouTube.  This session is all about how to create the easiest, simplest and best Test Dev Environment. Jay Marshall and Roshni Pary presented this session, and its fantastic.  Its full of cool demo’s and real world examples on how you can build a really great Test/Dev environment.

However, since VMworld a lot of people have been asking me “Object Storage What is it? and why would I use it?”.  Not everyone has heard of Object Storage, let alone started consuming it, so I thought now would be a good opportunity to share with people what I have been using Object Storage for.
