I am sure this must have gone round before but, how many environments do you have / think is necessary?
We have quite a collection of inter-related systems here, in-house developed, off the shelf, heavily customised, and using a number of different languages and databases.
Some only exist in live, some have dev / test and live, most of our stuff has dev, test and live. The new daddy system that is yet to go live and needs to interface with most of the others has been setup with dev, test, train and live.
Just had the bloke in charge of this project come to see me quite panicky because he has realised that he doesn't know how to use these environments properly or what they are going to talk to with respect to the other systems. Training starts at the end of this month whilst I am on holiday Big Grin | :-D .
I think it would be best if we had at least a nod at the same number of environments for each system as they all have to work together.
So, bearing in mind that all the systems we write or support are for our own group of companies, what environments would you recommend?
I think 3 is a minimum, I cannot decide if the 4th is necessary or not.
Previously I worked with dev, 8 test / train / whatever, and live. Which worked well, but then we only had the one system to support then. I have also worked with 5 environments, although I can't now remember what they all were, dev, test, qa, prod, I am sure there was one other.
Every man can tell how many goats or sheep he possesses, but not how many friends.
