CloudTest: Test the Cloud with CloudTest

  1. 1. “ Test the Cloud with CloudTest ” Conference session by Sergey Sundukovskiy Cloud computing sets a new trend in the way IT infrastructure operates, enabling greater responsiveness and lower costs across companies of all sizes. There are many Cloud products presented in the market today to help companies satisfy their growing needs for powerful performance and functionality. Cloud products and Cloud-targeted application are designed for companies that are either building their applications in the Cloud from scratch or that are replacing substantial portions of their federated services. This session is aimed at helping Cloud runners and Cloud starters choose Cloud products and services that suit their business and technology requirements. SESSION DESCRIPTION During this session, the speaker will concentrate on Cloud computing challenges and de- scribe ways to provide high performance and operability with Cloud products. You will learn about CloudTest—a solution that provides load testing as a service for Web and mo- bile applications—and about using this product in a typical Business Environment. AGENDA  What is CloudTest? After attending this session, you will learn how CloudTest allows customers to imple- ment pre-defined on-demand testing scenarios or design customized test cases using JavaScript to check load, performance, functionality, and GUI efficiency. The speaker will start with CloudTest's main features overview, followed by a detailed discussion of how CloudTest can leverage thousands of Amazon EC2 instances to simulate the ac- tivity of a significant number of virtual visitors and transactions, reaching several mil- lion in one hour.  Why CloudTest? You will learn what makes CloudTest a Cloud product of choice for a great number of Cloud Runners and Cloud Starters. The speaker will analyze how CloudTest can be used to test applications hosted both in-house (behind a firewall) and in the cloud (such as Amazon EC2, Xen, etc.). The results of the testing may be searched by mes- sages, by errors, or by values, simplifying the performed analysis. The speaker will discuss CloudTest features, including an Ajax-based user interface and an analytic memory service that handles large results sets and synchronizes data from distributed tests. The speaker will also specifically focus on such features as browser- independence and support for common Web-based standards, including SOAP, REST, HTTP(S), HTML, JSON, etc.
  2. 2. “ Test the Cloud with CloudTest ” Conference session by Sergey Sundukovskiy  CloudTest Recommended Use In the course of the session, you will learn how CloudTest can fit your Business and Technology Requirements. CloudTest is designed to perform extremely massive Web- scale tests, identifying and coping with performance issues through deployment and into production. The solution may also be of interest to those who need a controlled environment for real-world scenario simulations and execution of tests in-house, most commonly against development and QA environments. The speaker will help you learn about the value CloudTest can add to managing your products and services.  Cloud Testing Challenges At the end of the session, you will learn about some challenges that companies en- counter when choosing products and services for testing their applications in the Cloud. The discussion will include such issues as loadbalancing, autoscaling, failover, and resource tuning. Finally, you will be able to participate in a question-and-answer session, discussing the challenges related to your specific Cloud Computing needs.
