Architecting for CI/CD
Fast Management of Environments
Fast-moving teams can’t wait to get environments for builds and testing in place, nor can they wait for already overloaded DBAs to manually inject data or schema changes.
This need for speed requires changes to how infrastructure and environments are managed. Cloud-based hosting offerings like Microsoft’s Azure or Amazon’s Elastic Computing Cloud (EC2) allow teams to offload their build and server management. Services like Sauce Labs also offer physical mobile device farms for support of huge matrices of devices.
