Cloud Testing – A Way To Test Your Web Application

 

Cloud Testing is a form of software testing in which performance, scalability, and reliability of the web application are tested in a cloud computing environment. Cloud Testing uses cloud infrastructure for software testing. As we know testing is a crucial part of securing and managing the performance of an application. In today’s era of cloud computing, everyone wants to deliver its services via a cloud environment. Hence, the need for cloud testing is increasing exponentially.

What are the Benefits of Cloud Testing?

As cloud services allow remotely located users to access the application. Apart from this cloud testing is easily customizable and provides better scalability. Let’s have a look at the benefits of cloud testing:

Low-Cost: One of the primary benefits of the cloud testing is the testing cost. In any conventional testing costing remains high due to hardware and software requirements but in the cloud testing, an organization has to pay for operational charges only.

Dynamic availability: In cloud testing, Tester can get the testing environment dynamically. There is no need for an organization to invest money and time in setting up hardware and software.

Easily customizable: Testing in a cloud is easily customizable because Tester can easily perform load and performance testing scenarios in various permutations and combinations.

Scalability: In a cloud environment, the resources can be increased and decreased as per requirements. Hence it is extremely useful in situations where the business requirements change frequently.

Testing performed in the cloud

Performance Testing: Performance testing in the cloud also include load and stress testing. With the help of performance testing, a tester can measure the response time and latency for the application. In this testing, tester checks how a system changes over time under a certain load. Other than this check for services when multiple users access the cloud services.

Functional Testing: Functional testing in a cloud environment includes the system verification testing, interoperability testing, and user acceptance testing. System verification testing ensures that all the various components function correctly with one another and also the behavior of the components are as expected. The Interoperability testing ensures that the application works fine when moving from cloud infrastructure to another.

Security Testing: In the today’s era of computing security of users sensitive data is a major concern. However, with the help of cloud environment, each and everything is available at any time. Therefore, it is essential to secure the user’s sensitive data by any unauthorized means.

Scalability Testing: In this testing, tester ensures that the environment is scalable or not. In other words to make sure whether a system is stable whenever some modification in the number of resources.

Conclusion

In conclusion, I want to say that most of the organizations are adopting the cloud because of its versatility, scalability and reduced costs. Performance testing in the cloud environment is the essential thing to do. There are a lot of tools available which can be helpful in the performance testing such as Apache JMeter, AppPerfect Load Test, LoadStorm and much more. So don’t try your luck and use the appropriate tool for the testing. If you want to get more information about the performance testing tools then click here.
