Testing Cloud Services
Cloud computing is rapidly changing the way systems are developed, tested, and deployed. New system hosting capabilities—software as a service (SaaS), platform as a service (PaaS), infrastructure as a service (IaaS)—are forcing us to review and revise our testing processes. At the same time, cloud computing is affording us opportunities to employ new test tooling solutions, which we call testing as a service (TaaS). In this technical session, Jeroen Mengerink focus on testing SaaS systems, linking relevant IaaS and PaaS capabilities along the way. He will discuss how to test performance of the cloud itself and ways to take advantage of the resource elasticity afforded by cloud computing. Jeroen explores the risks―some traditional, others completely new—that arise when organizations implement cloud computing and describe the tests you must design to mitigate these risks.
