Unfortunately, these challenges are significantly magnified if developers do not have access to scalable, flexible and cost effective computing resources. With the availability of cloud computing resources, development and test teams are able to create these environments in the cloud, dramatically increasing the effectiveness of the department.

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]
Speakers

Being able to solve problems in live systems without causing downtime or performance degradation is critical in a world of continuous delivery mode (such as DevOps and SaaS environments). This is a capability which is currently missing. However, debugging of a live remote system is a challenging problem; in many cases, to debug the system the developer needs to run processes on the debugged system (and not a test offline system) in order to see the actual problem.
