Time to move for Cloud testing

Why cloud testing is so popular these days and the world is moving toward cloud testing.

Cloud testing is that form of the software testing in which the web applications are tested with the help of simulated real-world Web traffic in a cloud computing environment. It is very essential as it verifies and validates the integral cloud functions on the basis of the performance, redundancy and validate among others.

Cloud testing is playing a vital role these days. As, it is so popular in the software testing services companies, that it is considered a subset of software testing in which simulated and the real-world Web traffic is used to test cloud-based Web applications.

Due to the above points, Cloud testing has become mandatory to validate functional system and business requirements. There are many key elements of the cloud testing which helps in identifying the relevant testing types and conducting a risk/challenge analysis. The cloud testing also helps in setting up the cloud testing environment for their users which is very secure and many clients are very concerned about the security. With the help of cloud testing, we can easily simulate the real world challenges and by selecting the correct approach for the right testing strategy.

Hope this information is helpful.

It’s not that cloud testing is popular, what’s actually popular is cloud itself. And that increase in number of cloud projects directly impacts demand for cloud testing.

As for the cloud itself, there are quite a few benefits over standard infrastructure - it’s more reliable, easy to scale, and often much cheaper if you’re not dealing with huge amounts of data. Of course, it’s not suitable for every project.

What is Cloud?
Is every project now in this world are on cloud?
What is the difference in deployment of applications on Hosted Servers vs Cloud?
How testing differs for both? What are the areas testers needs to look when testing on cloud vs Hosted Server?

On-premises and cloud are going to be in present in combination at a lot of organizations for a while. Some might have just one kind but overall the risks are different for both things. Cloud risks: pricing, sprawl, lack of visibility in costs, governance, managed vs bare vms vs proprietary, data lock in, and possibly others. In the news unproperly locked down S3 buckets, mongodb databases, etc. The benefits being lack of asking permission to do anything, self-service, speed to delivery. The cost profiles are different. If a function goes crazy on-premises it is not a big deal. In the cloud that might be a $10k bill for no reason. On-premises typically less automation around development but lower costs in some cases for things like storage.

The cloud has gotten a lot of attention in recent years, and rightly so. Using cloud-based tools will save you time and money if you’re trying to expand an existing app or create something completely new. For example, you only have to pay for the cloud services you use, but you can be assured that additional capacity is available to meet demand spikes. This alone is beneficial for startups or agile software groups looking to get started with application server hosting, big data analysis, or database deployment without having to purchase and set it up.

The advantages, however, do not stop there.

Cheap and easy testbed construction, reconfiguration, and dismantling.
Round-the-clock accessibility.
Cloud enables collaboration.
Multi-platform support.
Multi-environment support.
Carry out thorough performance testing.

These are just a few of the advantages that the cloud provides for software development and testing, especially when it comes to Web and mobile support.

As others have said its not “Cloud testing” that is popular it is putting applications in the cloud that is popular, it has many benefits, mostly being up front cost and speed.

AWS and Azure provide details on the benefits in the links below:

Both also provide free foundational training which will teach you the benefits also:
