Testing Cloud Services. How to test SaaS, PaaS and IaaS
This eBook provides an introduction to testing cloud services and gives an impression of the general strategy for coping with the introduction of cloud services from risk and test perspective.
Cloud computing is a sea change in the way information systems are created and used. This simple fact is enough reason to investigate the phenomenon of cloud computing from a testing perspective. At the same time, it is useful to evaluate the testing profession from a cloud perspective because cloud computing offers interesting new options and solutions for a number of old bottlenecks. More and more organizations are choosing to use services from the cloud. There are different reasons for this, but two come to mind immediately: new opportunities and cost reduction.
An example of a new opportunity is worldwide access to data, at any time and with any device. And cost reduction occurs by sharing resources with other customers and not having to invest in resources (anymore).
This book is written mainly from the customer’s perspective.
