Testing Cloud Applications
As with any type of software, testing is an essential aspect of ensuring quality and performance. Testing a cloud application is similar to testing a web application. However, you do need test cases for the following additional cloud features:
- Dynamic scaling
- Automated provisioning
- Device synchronization
Generally, cloud applications are tested using cloud resources. These resources can include hardware, software and infrastructure in the cloud, providing an end-to-end solution. By leveraging a cloud testing solution, QA organizations can shorten provisioning time since services and testing environments can be spun up and torn down as needed.
