Testing integration is the focus of an update to VMware's Lab Manager automation system that became available today. Lab Manager 2.5 also added new operating system support and storage options, and introduces updates to management tools designed to simplify image deployment.
The EMC subsidiary announced that as part of the Lab Manager 2.5 release, two partners have stepped up to support the integration of third-party test automation suites: Borland will release an update to its SilkCentral tools, while Genilogix will unveil the beta of a plug-in that adds integration with HP Quality Center. In both cases, the aim is to allow testers to check out complete virtual test environments without leaving their test tools.
VMware also announced that it was making available for download a free ROI calculator to help users quantify their savings achieved with virtualization.
