On-Demand Software Testing Moves To The Cloud Although the cloud has become a standard delivery model for many hosted software applications, cloud-based software testing is just hitting its stride. Cloud-based software testing makes test environments and tools accessible to companies that lack the resources, physical space or ongoing need to develop and provision large-scale, internally based testing frameworks. With cloud-based testing, all running of test cases, defect reporting and other testing operations takes place in the cloud (either the firm’s own private cloud or a hosted cloud). Cloud-based testing facilitates communication and collaboration between geographically dispersed engineers and users. It
Cloud Computing And Virtualization People often ask what is the real difference of cloud computing and “the internet” or “ isn’t the internet already cloud computing”. I often tell them that cloud computing does not equal the internet or vice-versa, the internet is simply the best delivery platform that cloud computing can make use of. You can have a cloud computing infrastructure totally isolated from the internet and it is called a private cloud network. Still, some private cloud networks are made to be accessible via the internet, but the argument still stands that cloud computing does not automatically mean or require the internet. What makes
Drivers Of Cloud Computing Adaption Cloud computing is now in heavy use in the industry and even the consumer market is starting to consider the benefits of cloud computing. Even though it is using the same technology that we have since more than 10 years ago, the cloud computing paradigm made all of the difference by simply changing the implementation of networking technology. But what exactly drives the development of cloud technology, what motivates its constant update, and what prevents people from adopting it? Well, the biggest driver of cloud computing has always been economics. Because of changing market trends, heavy competition, and
Where Hardware Meets the Cloud: Arraying High-end Server Platforms The web has brought out hardware machinery spot-on to cloud-based applications. Some of these servers are so scalable in magnitude, mindboggling in performance and high-end in gigabytes capacity, that they even sound a little alien. Suddenly they are here and those who only thought of them as data processors without a name can now identify with them, courtesy of cloud computing platforms. Intel, through its Tyan partners, is an example of companies that have enabled this to happen through its cutting-edge processing units. These can be discussed under the following headings.
Five Reasons Why Hosted PBX Makes Good Business Sense If you’re in the market for a new phone system or want to upgrade your existing phone system, you should definitely check out what hosted PBX solutions have to offer. Unlike traditional PBX systems that consist of extensive hardware and equipment investments, hosted PBX needs little more than a telephone handset connected to the “cloud” on your vendor’s IP network in order to work. Industry research shows that hosted PBX is one of the fastest growing technologies. Dollar for dollar, hosted PBX gives you much more functionality and features compared to traditional
Cloud Trends: Australian CIOs Say Supplying Network Is More Important Than Cost For many cloud enthusiasts, the state of data comes first before even thinking about a supplying channel. This explains the offshoot of many private clouds that cut ties with sources and help organizations run the data handling show alone. However, the latest trends from Australia show that the supply network may be even more important than ever before. A hundred and seventy nine Chief Information Officers from the country have recently said that they would consider moving to the cloud if it had reinforcements from the source. Australian
Cloud Infographic: Cloud Apps (A Buyers Guide) SaaS has gained huge popularity over the last few years, with an increasing number of enterprises adopting it mainly due to the benefits like pay per use and on demand service. Cloud applications entail thorough testing for their integrity, different from that of on-premise applications. This involves testing of business logic, security, data integration, performance, and scalability, among others. Continued… Infographic Source: Veracode
