cloud testing

Load and performance testing conducted on the applications and services provided via cloud computing -- particularly the capability to access these services -- in order to ensure optimal performance and scalability under a wide variety of conditions.  Cloud testing typically involves monitoring and reporting on real-world user traffic conditions as well as load balance and stress testing for a range of simulated usage conditions.  

Cloud testing services from companies like SOASTA, Trigent and IBM can conduct a complete analysis of a company’s cloud computing strategy and provide the results to the company in the form of interactive real-time dashboards that detail conditions under both existing and simulated peak usage.
