The cloud is on everyone's lips these days and the everyday life of many companies would be unthinkable without it. Where at that time there were dedicated servers in the company's own premises, today almost all services are outsourced to the cloud. Driven by simplicity and many advantages in terms of system stability and customer satisfaction, there are hardly any companies today that rely on classic solutions. The worldwide turnover in the area of Cloud Computing has increased by 600% in the last 10 years
and a strong further increase is predicted for the next years. Due to the large number of high-tech providers in this area today, almost every conceivable application can now be implemented and in some cases it has already been abstracted to such an extent that it is becoming increasingly easy for many companies to get started.
In the course of the move of many software areas to the cloud, a new aspect now stands out: cloud testing. This is primarily concerned with ensuring the security and functionality of the operated application in the cloud environment, as this often involves some special features. For this purpose, the type of testing is often divided into the following areas:
In detail, various software test methods are applied here, depending on the requirements. If the focus is on securing sensitive customer data, then, in addition to classic code reviews
, dedicated security tests
are also recommended which look in detail at the security-critical aspects of the infrastructure and services and put them through their paces. If, however, the functionality of the application is in the foreground, numerous functional tests such as unit, integration or system tests
All these types of tests are of course also offered by ditCraft. As pioneers of new technologies and advocates of groundbreaking advances within IT, we have been familiar with a wide variety of cloud solutions for a long time and have been able to gain experience for many years. As we have also been able to protect many customers from the loss of sensitive customer or company data by checking security-critical systems and cryptographic protocols, we feel well prepared to help you in the best possible way.
