Three Benefits of Cloud-Based Testing
Switching to cloud-based testing will save development companies money on internal QA and allow testing companies to lower their prices, giving them a competitive advantage.
FREMONT, CA: Cloud-based software testing is a relatively recent trend in QA that is quickly gaining traction. This type of research is done in a third-party cloud computing system rather than a conventional on-premises one, as the name suggests. All kinds of applications, including mobile apps and SaaS solutions, will benefit from cloud-based QA. Here are three benefits of moving to cloud-based testing:
QA professionals can be more versatile with cloud-based platforms. When the team needs more virtual machines, computing resources, or storage, they can easily request it from the software provider and receive it quickly, with minimal disruption to the project's timetable. Furthermore, when resources are no longer required, testers can quickly scale down the infrastructure and avoid paying for unused resources.
The overall cost of ownership of a physical in-house testing facility, with its diverse hardware and software, is significantly higher than the monthly costs of a cloud-based environment. Because most cloud providers use a "pay-as-you-go" model, businesses can use only the testing tools they need while maintaining complete control over their costs. In addition, unlike on-premises testing infrastructures, cloud testing infrastructures do not require routine maintenance or emergency repairs, allowing for a significant reduction in operating costs.
Easy To Set Up and Customize
A business can avoid the time-consuming hardware and software configuration step by transitioning to cloud-based testing. Since the cloud testing market is booming, QA professionals now have a wide range of tools to choose from, all with different prices and feature sets, and can choose the one that best fits their current project requirements.
Furthermore, when creating a cloud testing environment, the team can easily simulate as many device/OS/browser/screen resolution combinations as the project needs and run test scenarios in different combinations and permutations. In the meantime, the research software provider will complete all infrastructure repairs and upgrades.
