What is Rational Test Virtualization Server?

IBM® Rational® Test Virtualization Server enables you to test software earlier and more frequently in the development lifecycle. It removes dependencies by virtualizing part or all of an application or database; so software testing teams do not have to wait for the availability of those resources to begin. If you combine IBM Rational Test Virtualization Server with IBM Rational Integration Tester to automate testing, you can achieve continuous software testing to support a DevOps approach.
