CloudShare for IT ManagersApril 13th, 2012 | Author: Chris Riley | Filed under: CloudShare | Tags: CloudShare, Development, IT, production, servers
As an IT manager, you’re probably inundated with requests from developers for environments, servers, and other time consuming, expensive matters. Developer activity takes up a lot of your time, and can affect your job. If you’re going to get fired, it will be because a production server went down. A test/dev environment breaking? That’s to be expected.
Wouldn’t it be nice to not have to worry about developers getting into your production servers and making a mess of things? Wouldn’t it be great to give developers everything they need to do their job while still retaining full control? Hard to imagine such a world, right? I’m here to tell you that dream can become reality.
With CloudShare, developers your production infrastructure, get self-service access to everything they need, and become your best friend. They can make as much of a mess as they want and they will never affect your production environments. We keep developers outside your firewall and even off of your network. CloudShare removes any effort associated with provisioning environments for your developers and we keeps developers off your production hardware so that your servers (and your job) are safe.
The way it works is you purchase licenses per developer or per concurrent project. You assign these licenses and environments to the developers who will use them. Everything is security trimmed, so developers only see the environments they have access to. In those environments a developer can add/remove virtual machines, develop solutions, install software, even break things. They are full server administrator. When a solution or project is complete they can share with your organization what they have built in many ways. It can be validated, tested, and approved before bringing into production. It’s a win/win for IT Managers and Developers, making the technical team the all star team.
