Christina Thorpe, Anthony Ventresque and Clare McInerney are running a Lero industry event on 'Testing the Cloud'.
Cloud computing is everywhere, inevitable: originally a layered abstraction of a heterogeneous environment, it has become the paradigm of a large-scale data-oriented system. And while it has some interesting features (easy deployment of applications, resiliency, security, performance, scalability, elasticity, etc.), testing its robustness and its reliability is a major challenge to everyone working with the Cloud. The Cloud is an intricate collection of interconnected and virtualised computers, connected services and complex service-level agreements. From a testing perspective, the Cloud is a complex composition of complex systems. Is global testing in the cloud possible? If not, what can we conclude from partial tests? The question of testing this large, network-based, dynamic, composition of computers, virtual machines, servers, services, SLAs, seems particularly difficult. Come along to this industry seminar to hear more about issues around Cloud and Testing
