Difference between Agile Model and V-Model

Agile Model:
Agile Model is the software development model in which development and testing process carries on simultaneously. In this model, both development related processes and testing related processes are parallel. This model provides the facility of more interaction between development team, testing team and end-users.

V-Model:
V-Model is the software development model in which testing takes place once the development process is fully complete or almost complete. In V-Model development and testing process are kept quite separate. It is not as reliable as Agile Model.
