The New Mindset for Testing Cloud-based Applications
The "cloud" is the new kid on the block. So, how exactly does testing cloud-based applications differ from testing traditional applications? Do you have the right mindset and processes in place today to build and test high quality cloud-based applications? Charles Sterling answers these questions as he takes you on a journey to demystify the application lifecycle for cloud-based applications. He explains that you need a different mindset and a new set of processes and tools at each stage of the project cycle-planning, execution, release, and monitoring-to deliver high quality cloud-based applications. Based on his team's experience of building cloud services, Charles shares two specific examples-continuous integration and performance testing. Using these examples, he highlights the salient points of testing cloud-based applications and contrasts them with testing in the traditional world.
