Functional Testing of Cloud Based Applications


Internet based per-use service models are turning things upside down in the software industry. Not only does cloud computing bring new business opportunities; it also causes some major impacts on software testing and maintenance. Idexcel provides testing and measurement activities on a cloud-based environment and infrastructure by leveraging cloud technologies and solutions. Our services assure quality of cloud-based applications deployed in a cloud, including their functional services, business processes, security and system performance, as well as scalability based on a set of application-based system requirements in a cloud.


Functional testing of cloud based applications

Apart from the verification and validation of applications’ business functionality, Cloud based applications need testing of the following critical aspects that are unique to Cloud applications that can cause serious legal and financial implications if not thoroughly tested.

  • Multi-tenancy testing
  • Billing and Payment

Cloud performance testing

Performance testing, monitoring, and tuning of cloud are the key buzzwords nowadays. We provide expertise and easy to use cloud based SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) performance tools that test, analyze and monitor all aspects of the web infrastructure to identify current and potential issues. Our cloud performance testing includes:

  • Load testing
  • Stress testing

Cloud security testing

Security is of paramount importance in cloud based applications. Data from one organization should not be visible to other organizations. Apart from this, data visibility should be controlled based on the user’s roles in the organization. Implementing security in SaaS models is a challenge, especially when the database is shared by more than one organization. Idexcel’s cloud security testing comprises of benchmarking with OWASP top ten security threats, determining risks and severity. Some of the key areas we cover include: Identity management, SQL injection, cross site scripting, broken authentication and session management.

  • Identity Management-Authorization
  • Identity Management-Authentication
  • Identity Management-Access Control
  • SQL injection
  • Cross-site scripting
  • Broken authentication and session management
  • Load balancing
