Skytap Releases iOS App to Manage the Software Development Life Cycle

Skytap, a provider of on-demand Environments-as-a-Service (EaaS), has released the Skytap Mobile Admin App for iOS, which allows users of the Skytap platform to manage cloud-based dev/test, training and demo environments.

Skytap provides its EaaS platform to manage the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) and help customers deliver better software. Skytap is used to manage, share, deploy and decommission on-demand environments that contain everything needed to collaborate at each phase of the SDLC, eliminating costs and project delays due to manual configuration and dependencies. Skytap’s new mobile app provides administrator-level Skytap users with smartphone access to several core capabilities. Admin users can view the status of their environments and leverage a lineup of features for the real-time management of their Skytap resources. Through a mobile dashboard, users can: 

- Save costs by monitoring environment run states and shut them down when they aren’t in use
- Create new environments from the Skytap template library
-Add new environments to existing projects or change environment ownership
- Copy environments to different regions via Skytap’s Copy to Region functionality

Skytap’s mobile app also provides access to visibility and control tools, enabling the ability to manage virtual machine and storage usage. Instant alerts prompt administrators to monitor usage and adjust limits as needed 24 hours a day, ensuring that systems are not left idle and driving up costs.

The app also provides access to commonly employed admin functions, including the ability to: 

- Filter and assign environments by project
- Access integrated support options
- Open the application direct from notification emails
- View VM desktop screens and thumbnails on the phone

The Skytap iOS mobile app is free to download and install, and uses a customer’s current Skytap administrator-level login to sync to environments. An Android version of the app, currently in beta, will be available on the Android Store in April 2015.
