Santa Barbara, CA—September 12, 2013
Everybody today is confronted with cloud computing. Whether you are a user, designer, programmer, project manager, or tester, sooner or later the cloud will affect your work. If you are involved in selecting or implementing services from the cloud, or if you’re responsible to keep them up and running, this book will prove to be an invaluable resource.
Testing Cloud Services covers an extensive list of risks that arise when implementing cloud computing, including traditional risks as well as completely new scenarios. This book provides strategies for avoiding these risks and solving problems. Every risk is connected to existing, updated, and new test measures. It’s necessary to start testing during the selection of cloud services and to continue end-to-end testing after going live, as continuity risks arise all the time.
With this book in hand, you will save time and discover an effective approach to testing that can be immediately applied in practice.
