xLM Continuous Validation - Infrastructure
ALM Server Controls the Test Automation Server where test automation scripts are deployed. ALM Server manages the test schedules and configuration. It determines the test environment also. For example: The OS and Browser Type that are required in the client VM that will be used to run the test automation scripts.
Based on the OS and Browser type, the test automation server automatically instantiates a Test VM which is used to validate the SUT (System Under Test - the App being validated). All test results are passed back to the ALM Server .
Test Automation Logs and the App Logs are fed into a Big Data Log Analysis App. Detailed log analysis is performed on an ongoing basis to ensure compliance, review trends, etc..
