Analyst Study Reviews StackSafe Test Center
StackSafe, Inc., a provider of pre-production staging and testing solutions for IT operations teams, announced today the release of a Ptak, Noel & Associates report that anticipates a high acceptance of StackSafe Test Center, the first virtualized staging and testing solution of its kind. The report suggests that although many IT professionals know that software infrastructure testing is critical, many infrastructure and operations teams cannot afford such an action. However, Ptak, Noel & Associates believes Test Center is a solution that many IT departments can implement and successfully use.

“Plenty of solutions exist for testing in the development environment – but few, if any, exist that have been specifically designed for pre-testing changes in the production environments,” wrote Richard Ptak, Managing partner and co-founder of Ptak, Noel & Associates LLC. “Those that have focused on helping production teams turn out to be cost - prohibitive, difficult to use or fail to provide sufficient information. StackSafe introduced Test Center to fill that gap.”

According to the report, Test Center is valuable for its ease of use and time-cutting strategies. Using virtualization as an enabling technology, the infrastructure it creates is a mirror image of what currently runs in the production environment, which can then be altered without affecting production system functions and performance. This allows IT professionals to perform preliminary tests to better anticipate the effect of changes before altering the live environment itself.
