If you’ve not been living on the moon, you’ve probably heard of the concept of “Nested Virtualization”.
This is a method of running a Virtual Machine inside a Virtual Machine.
Many entered the CloudShare TeamLabs SPC2014 pass giveaway, and the lucky winner has been chosen!
Microsoft has recently released the Service Pack (SP) 1 for SharePoint 2013. In this article I will show you how easy is to install the first SP for SharePoint 2013 and also some of the new goodies coming with the platform. Let’s start.
Maybe it’s a little bit of manifest destiny, but I couldn’t help but notice that one of my new year’s predictions is already coming true: Namely that it’s only late February and I’m already seeing dev shops that are taking Cloud Integrated Development Environments (IDEs) seriously.
In this article I will continue talking about how to create a Web Performance Test for SharePoint 2013 using Visual Studio 2013 (VS 2013) Update 1 in a SharePoint 2013 CloudShare environment. If you remember, in my last post about this topic I explained how easy is to define and create a Web Performance Test in VS 2013 Update 1. In this blog post, we will see how to execute an existing Web Test and also the performance information provided by the IDE.
At CloudShare we are working agile. Every 2 weeks we have a new version deployed to production. One of the advantages of such short iteration is the ability to get very early feedback from customers or from our customer facing colleagues.
However, we sometime want to get this feedback before the version is deployed. Our developers want to get validation from the product manager before QA start to run their tests. Or sometime we even want that of our customer facing persons will discuss a specific feature or UI with the customer itself, before the feature is done.
In this post I will explain how you can do web performance tests in SharePoint 2013. In the same way you can detect/prevent any issue or problem on your SharePoint Solutions doing an exhaustive analysis using tools like MSOCAF (Microsoft SharePoint Online Code Analysis Framework), you can verify performance and stress abilities on your SharePoint applications by creating web performance and load tests. In this first post I will show you how to create a Web Performance Test for SharePoint 2013 using Visual Studio 2013 (VS 2013) Update 1 in a SharePoint 2013 CloudShare environment.
CloudShare’s virtualization platform makes it easy to quickly and cost effectively stand up key resources for any size QlikView deployment whether it be a single server for quick dev/test initiatives or multiple servers to explore an end-to-end enterprise topology. In this post we’re going to look at creating a development environment on the CloudShare virtualization platform in order to jump start a QlikView project.
In this article I will continue talking about how to use the capabilities provided by MSOCAF (Microsoft SharePoint Online Code Analysis Framewor) for auditing a SharePoint environment in terms of .WSP solutions deployed. If you remember, in my last post about MSOCAF we simply reviewed how to install and use the tool in a CloudShare SharePoint development environment. In this blog post I will continue showing you how MSOCAF is a great tool for analyzing SharePoint solutions and detect any problems introduced by them in a SharePoint farm.
“Wow! That’s Cool!” was my first reaction.
“I wish I knew about this sooner.” was my second.
That’s a really auspicious start to my joining CloudShare.
