It is also helpful while testing application that operates over a LAN or the Web like on a client’s server.
Now let’s take a look at some of the major requirement of Cloud testing
- Sufficient test models and criteria
QA engineers should be provided with sufficient test models and criteria that support cloud and web application testing. These test models and criteria should be in areas like SaaS and Cloud-based application. This scalability model is used to validate or measure the performance of the system. It also requires Integration models and criteria to address cloud-based connectivity protocols and APIs for end-to-end application integration across the cloud.
- Proper test methods and solutions
The requirements and features of cloud applications are in continuous change, for which it requires newer test methods and solutions. Methods like continuous validation and regression testing solutions for the applications which change continuously due to bug fixing and feature updates. Application tester should also be given automatic testing facilities for the multi-lease feature of cloud computing.
