What is cloud testing:

Cloud testing is a form of software testing in which web applications use cloud computing environments to simulate real-world user traffic.

Cloud Testing uses cloud infrastructure for software testing.Organizations pursuing testing in general and load, performance testing and production service monitoring in particular are challenged by several problems like limited test budget, meeting deadlines.

Need for Cloud testing:

Traditional approaches to test a software incurs high cost to simulate user activity from different geographic locations.Testing firewalls and load balances involves expenditure on hardware, software and its maintenance. In case of applications where rate of increase in number of users is unpredictable or there is variation in deployment environment depending on client requirements, cloud testing is more effective.

Cloud test supports:

* Stress Testing.
* Load Testing.
* Performance Testing.
* Compatibility Testing.
* Browser Performance Testing.
