As today’s engineers try to meet industry challenges, such as the need to bring products to market faster and integrate new technologies into existing systems, a modular test software architecture has emerged as an ideal solution.
Software deployment is the process of managing and automating the packaging, testing, distribution and installation of software files and/or applications to test systems across an enterprise network or production floor.
An effective software deployment strategy provides the confidence and reliability needed to ensure an effective software deployment. When facing software deployment, several challenges present themselves and need to be addressed such as:
To address these issues, several methods will be described below on how to effectively deploy your software. We will first discuss the methods of creating a deployment image. Once this deployment image has been created, we will cover the three methods for deploying this image to your test systems which are:
