  • A

    agile test automation pyramid

    The agile test automation pyramid is a graphical strategy guide for implementing automated software testing. The model splits types of testing into three layers based on the return on investment (ROI) offered by automating that particular type.

  • C

    continuous delivery (CD)

    Continuous delivery (CD) is an extension of the concept of continuous integration (CI). Whereas CI deals with the build/test part of the development cycle for each version, CD focuses on what happens with a committed change after that point.

  • D

    disaggregated server

    A disaggregated server is a server that breaks up components and resources into subsystems. Disaggregated servers can be adapted to changing storage or compute loads as needed without replacing or disrupting an entire server for an extended period of time.

  • distributed cloud

    Distributed cloud is the application of cloud computing technologies to interconnect data and applications served from multiple geographic locations.

  • E

    event-driven application

    An event-driven application is a computer program that is written to respond to actions generated by the user or the system.

  • H

    hands-off infrastructure management

    Hands-off infrastructure management is the administration of server, storage and network components that have been designed and configured to run with a significant degree of automation.

  • hardware security

    Hardware security is vulnerability protection that comes in the form of a physical device rather than software that is installed on the hardware of a computer system. The term also refers to the protection of physical systems from harm.

  • I

    Infrastructure as Code (IAC)

  • network automation

    Network automation is the use of IT controls to supervise and carry out every-day network management functions.

  • S

    serverless computing

    Serverless computing is an event-driven application design and deployment paradigm in which computing resources are provided as scalable cloud services.

  • software-defined infrastructure control (SDIC)

    Software-defined infrastructure control (SDIC) is an analytics-driven approach to balancing the resources that application programs demand in virtual and cloud environments.
