Quali’s Cloud Sandbox Software allows you to create and publish sandboxes that are replicas of infrastructure and application configurations and use them for development, testing, demos, training and support. CloudShell works by letting you model, orchestrate, and deploy on-prem, cloud, and hybrid environments so that all teams in the DevOps lifecycle have consistent access to production ready environments.Video Overview Watch a Demo Read the Data Sheet
Shells are the building blocks of sandboxes that model infrastructure and applications. Plug-ins make it easy to integrate CloudShell with your whole DevOps lifecycle.
CloudShell enables you to model infrastructure and applications that replicate complex production environments. In a single Sandbox, users can combine physical infrastructure and network connectivity, virtual infrastructure and virtual network connectivity, applications and cloud interfaces.
Create powerful orchestration workflows inside of sandboxes. Snapshot, save, restore, configure, and monitor sandbox resources with ease. Developers can use Quali’s native Python libraries to create orchestration while non-programmers can use Quali’s visual drag-and-drop authoring tool.
Easily deploy full application stacks into sandboxes, publish sandbox blueprints to a shared self-service catalog for on-demand access by all your teams, and allow DevOps tools to consume sandboxes for full DevOps automation.
CloudShell’s unique smart multi-tenancy ensures that many users can run in isolated Sandboxes while sharing infrastructure and networks without conflict. Infrastructure can be locked or shared as needed for optimal use of resources.
CloudShell includes lab automation and management features like inventory, reservations, scheduling, role-based access control, conflict resolution, and business intelligence. Easily automate multiple labs and share them among hundreds or thousands of engineers.
CloudShell enables easy integration with continuous process and DevOps tools through a full set of APIs and a plug-in architecture.
Quali offers several fully integrated CloudShell add-on solutions.
TestShell is Quali’s test automation framework purpose-built for CloudShell. Run your tests in an automated Sandbox to ensure that they execute on infrastructure that is configured to replicate the real production environment.learn more
