Cloud computing has changed the environment of testing. Its use is increasing for hosting business applications (SaaS) and testing (TaaS). Martin Pol and Jeroen Mengerink focus on SaaS, describing the relevant infrastructure and platform services (IaaS and PaaS). How do we test performance of the cloud itself? How do we make sure that the continuity of services is guaranteed? How do we cope with elasticity and the philosophy of bring-your-own-device (BYOD)? Martin and Jeroen discuss the risks that arise when implementing cloud computing―some traditional, but others completely new. Learn how to mitigate these risks with current, modified, and new test techniques. As testers, we must be involved earlier in the cloud selection process. Testers should help to create and evaluate selection criteria to minimize risk. In addition, testers should be involved in the project longer as testing in production is needed to determine if the Service Level Agreements are being met.
