New CollabNet Lab Management 2.4 Powers Enterprise-Strength Continuous Integration

Enhancements Enable Large Enterprises to Fully Leverage the Power of Agile Development;
New Professional Services Help Customers to Implement Continuous Build and Test Integration

SALT LAKE CITY, Agile2011 Conference, Aug. 9, 2011 — CollabNet®, the leader in Agile development in the Cloud, today announced the availability of CollabNet Lab Management 2.4, the latest version of its self-service build-and-test server provisioning platform.  Lab Management delivers dynamic elastic build-and-test server provisioning from any cloud—private, public, or the CollabNet server cloud.  Through its integration with CollabNet’s TeamForge® 6.1 ALM platform (released in June 2011), customers can for the first time deploy a fully integrated, elastic Continuous Integration framework.  Lab Management 2.4 also features simplified profile definition for easy provisioning of fully configured virtual servers, global role management capabilities for simplified role-based access control (RBAC), and faster performance and better reliability for enterprise scalability.  Together, these enhancements enable large-scale continuous integration and enterprise-wide Agile development.  More information is available at www.open.collab.net/products/labmgnt/.

In conjunction with the new Lab Management release, CollabNet also announced the immediate availability of a new suite of professional services designed to help customers implement continuous build-and-test integration.  These services complement a wide range of CollabNet professional services, including Agile Training and Coaching, Agile Transformation Services, and Product Training and Information Services.  More information is available at http://www.open.collab.net/consulting/.

In support of these announcements, CollabNet will host a free webinar, “Closing the Agile Loop: Continuous Integration, Continuous Information,” on August 24 at 9:00 a.m. PDT.  Free registration is available at http://www.open.collab.net/webinar/108/.

“Other server provisioning systems are characterized by their high cost and complexity, and many deliver only virtual server provisioning,” said David Parker, vice president and general manager, Scrum business line, CollabNet.  “The CollabNet Lab Management elastic provisioning solution is a cost-effective, easy-to-use platform for both hosted and on-premises clouds and for both virtual and bare-metal servers.”

About Lab Management

CollabNet Lab Management is a cloud-based service that enables IT users to configure environments; upload software assets, set up and tear down lab environments; and manage projects.  As an integrated option to CollabNet TeamForge, it is the industry’s only elastic provisioning solution completely integrated into an ALM tool suite offered from a single vendor.  Lab Management provisions from a pool of virtual and physical servers in a private corporate data center or a public cloud, such as Amazon EC2 and CollabNet’s server cloud.  Provisioned configurations and servers can be deployed into a virtual lab with just the click of a button, saving up to 90% of hard costs by centralizing development tool, server, and administrative infrastructure.
