and .NET Continuous Delivery
Today XebiaLabs announced the latest version of XL Deploy.

The new XL Deploy Cloud Pack for EC2, vSphere and other clouds, is an add-on that provides a self-service portal for Developers, Testers and QA teams to easily spin up and tear down the on-demand environments they need.
