DevOps Solution for Continuous Testing Helps Organizations Accelerate Product Development and Deployment

Spirent DevOps solution brings together the right mix of people, products and processes to reduce product defects and delays

SUNNYVALE, Calif.--()--Spirent Communications plc (LSE: SPT), today launched Spirent CLEAR DevOps, a solution to help organizations accelerate product development and deployment through continuous testing. The solution addresses the DevOps challenge of incorporating the testing within the continuous integration and deployment cycles.

“Spirent's focus on continuous testing is a great complement to the DevOps movement”

DevOps is the communications and collaboration between developers and IT operations that helps to shorten the gap between product creation and successful deployment. But many organizations struggle to properly balance rapid deployment and thorough testing. According to IDC’s December 2014 survey of Fortune 1000 DevOps Best Practice Metrics, IT organizations that have tried to custom-adjust current tools to meet DevOps practices have a failure rate of 80 percent, thus making tool replacement and/or addition a critical requirement. Furthermore, approximately 21 percent of those surveyed by IDC stated that they were looking for Testing/QA tools to accelerate DevOps. Spirent CLEAR DevOps integrates Continuous Integration (CI), Continuous Deployment (CD) and Continuous Change Management (CCM) with Spirent’s automation and orchestration tools for Continuous Testing (CT).

"Spirent's focus on continuous testing is a great complement to the DevOps movement,” said Alan Shimel, managing partner at The CISO Group. “Continuous testing through automated solutions like Spirent is a requirement for DevOps success."

“As technology providers migrate to software-based networking and virtualize more of their network elements, traditional approaches to product development and testing are inefficient,” said Patrick Johnson, general manager of Infrastructure Test Optimization Solution Group at Spirent. “Spirent has adapted its portfolio to better serve this paradigm shift and help DevOps teams test earlier, more frequently and economically. Spirent’s CLEAR solution brings virtual networking elements, orchestration and automation together with a proven deployment methodology to realize more from DevOps.”

Spirent CLEAR DevOps is a solution that can be customized to best meet a customer’s needs and covers the entire CI, CT, CCM and CD lifecycles. A customized dashboard and ALM integration provides progress and process visibility. And a robust automation orchestration capability ensures a high level of continuous testing and a large number of re-usable, production configurations are available for virtual and hybrid physical/virtual test beds. Spirent CLEAR DevOps delivers best practices expertise for continuous testing for both small and large scale environments, reducing the number of false starts.
