Parasoft Virtualize significantly lowers the cost to stage an extraordinarily realistic development and test environment

Parasoft today announced the new release of Parasoft Virtualize. Parasoft’s fourth generation of Application-Behaviour Virtualization (ABV) delivers a comprehensive solution for helping developers and testers eliminate the testing constraints associated with today's heterogeneous composite applications.

Parasoft Virtualize allows organizations to automatically capture and emulate dependent system behaviour. Instead of wrestling with schedules to access banking mainframes, multi-national ERP systems, 3rd party information systems or any system that is out of your general control, Virtualize creates a Parasoft Virtualized Asset that emulates dependent system behaviour— including control over performance parameters and data.

"Parasoft Virtualize significantly lowers the cost to stage an extraordinarily realistic development and test environment," said Wayne Ariola, VP of Strategy for Parasoft Corporation. "Not only does Parasoft Virtualize eliminate the traditional constraints of developing and testing complex applications but also it assists organizations to execute rich end-to-end test scenarios, which includes Cloud, mobile applications and service-oriented architectures."

Parasoft Virtualize is used in conjunction with hardware/OS virtualization to provide developers and testers the resources they desperately need to execute their development and testing tasks.

New Product Highlights:
Testing Constraints –Parasoft Virtualize provides concurrent, 24/7 access to dependent test resources, eliminating the constraints that commonly stifle testing—for example multiple development and test teams having limited access to mainframe cycles, having shared and tightly scheduled access time, and so forth.

Performance Scaling – Parasoft Virtualize scales virtualized assets to support large-scale, high-throughput load and performance tests.

Environment Management – Parasoft Virtualize easily manages interdependent system connections (including support for large 3rd party systems), facilitating rapid development, testing and deployment as well as reducing the overhead for configuration or infrastructure management.

Parallel Development – Parasoft Virtualize removes parallel development delays by giving teams the ability to rapidly emulate or model the needed behaviour rather than having to wait for others to upgrade, configure, and manage the dependent systems.
