Cloud computing is here and it’s changing the way we test software. Cloud-based testing offers lower cost, flexible, scalable, on-demand, pay-per-use infrastructure services. Tauhida Parveen describes the concept of cloud-based testing, its scope, distinct requirements, benefits, and drawbacks. She explains how cloud-based testing brings a new perspective to certain traditional testing activities, including instantly creating and dismantling testing environments, and the ability to mimic production environments early in the testing cycle. She also talks about the cost and effort of provisioning such dynamic test environments by testers. She describes how one can engineer scalable environments to perform load, stress, and performance testing, in addition to compatibility, cross-browser, and cross- platform testing using the cloud. She also describes some of the tools and technologies (e.g., Amazon cloud services, SOA, web services, and testing-as-a-service) that are now available to aid in cloud- based testing. Take back the tips and guidance that you can share with your testing team and prepare them for the next generation of software testing.
