Why have test environments?

Have you ever been working on a new project and came across a new menu that you haven’t seen before?  Why not try it out?  After making a few changes here and there you are now ready to head out of the office for the weekend until you get a phone call.  The changes you had made on the server corrupted some files.

Unfortunately this does happen.  Luckily you have back-ups and within minutes everything was up and running on the server.

The moral of this post is, never ever test in a live environment.  Of course this is all assumed that you have a test or dev environment set up.

Test and/or dev environments are ideal for testing, training, documentation and etc.  And don’t forget, always have back-ups!

Give our sales department a call today on our test environments and backups before it’s too late!
