Cloud Computing & the Significance of Cloud Testing

Cloud computing is more than a technology trend; implementation of cloud computing has been considered as an appropriate and promising option for organizations in the recent years. The need for cloud computing is not just for reducing the costs but also to position their services / offerings competitively. It has transformed the way businesses are conducted, services are delivered, and technologies are consumed.

Cloud computing offers advantages such as speed, scalability, agility, accessibility, and flexibility. Cloud computing is a strategic move as per the organizations that are impacting their businesses, instead of just being a cost-effective methodology.  CXOs are continuously adapting specific IT strategies to leverage the benefits of the cloud. Let us understand the factors to be considered while adopting cloud computing:

  • Cloud adoption requires planning, management, and execution for an extended term to develop the anticipated results.
  • Cloud adoption originates with identifying the right cloud provider, transitioning client servers to the cloud, and finally implementing automation.
  • Organizations should assess the suitability of deployment models that are available such as private cloud, public cloud, and hybrid cloud and choose the suitable option that aligns fine with their business goals.
  • Similarly, organizations must evaluate three cloud service models, i.e., SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS that are available in the market for their business.

Top Five Challenges of Adopting Cloud Computing

Organizations are able to adopt cloud computing if they are able to alleviate the given challenges:

  • Redesigning the application architecture by conforming to cloud-specific requirements
  • Determining delivery mechanisms for the cloud
  • Dealing with issues such as data migration, availability, performance, and scalability
  • Ensuring data security, availability, and confidentiality

The significance of Cloud Testing Services

Cloud testing has become crucial for being successful with the aforementioned challenges. Though, cloud testing strategy is significantly impacted by the service models, deployment models or crucial characteristics of cloud computing. The non-functional aspects like performance, security, compatibility, environment management, and user experience have to be paid attention by testing teams while transitioning to the cloud.

Cloud-based test environments should be built and used for testing purposes as required for some time. Given below are some characteristics of cloud testing that can support organizations in offering high-quality services to their clients:

  • Security testing of an application on the cloud to recognize if the security framework provided is perfect or not
  • Performance testing, load testing, and stress testing of applications on the cloud by generating loads as required by leveraging cloud environment
  • Compatibility testing of applications on the cloud by generating illustrations of different operating systems using the cloud

A veteran software testing provider, who has expertise in various domains and cloud service models, can help you enable successful migration of your applications and data to the cloud.
