Cost Benefits of Virtualized Regression Testing

In the world of DevOps and Automation, you are tasked with handling a constant stream of changes to production. Whether you do feature testing or conducting continuous integration, virtualizing the regression testing platform has great benefits. Through virtualized, automated regression, the device/system under test and test tools can either be VMs or Containers that run on commodity servers with little to no requirement for specialized hardware testing.
