Ask Slashdot: Do Any Development Shops Build-Test-Deploy On A Cloud Service? 119

bellwould (11363) writes "Our CTO has asked us to move our entire dev/test platform off of shared, off-site, hardware onto Amazon, Savvis or the like. Because we don't know enough about this, we're nervous about the costs like CPU: Jenkins tasks checks-out 1M lines of source, then builds, tests and test-deploys 23 product modules 24/7; as well, several Glassfish and Tomcat instances run integration and UI tests 24/7. Disk: large databases instances packed with test and simulation data. Of course, it's all backed up too. So before we start an in-depth review of what's available, what experiences are dev shops having doing stuff like this in the cloud?"

    I think you're just failing to on-board the new cloud paradigm going forward.
    You probably haven't accounted for the synergized trending advantages.

    I feel like I just read a week's worth of posts from LinkedIn connections.

    Yes, we use Visual Studio 365 Azure Edition for our C++ projects. Our compile times are a little longer, but we're riding the latest wave of post-Enterprise active data web cloud assured technology.

    This gives us all the advantages of future web technology developments as they happen with Microsoft's world-leading Software Engineering/Code ARTezan(R)(TM) Cratfperson paradigm.

    As a bonus, all of our best-shored development consultants were able to migrate their legacy Visual Source Safe projects seamlessly using cloud-aware IE plugins.
