Frequently Asked Questions
What is Cloud Testing?
Cloud testing refers to a process in which developers or QAs leverage a cloud-based infrastructure for software testing purposes. It helps teams to eliminate physical infrastructure, such as on-site device labs, in order to test their software. This results in lower costs and greater efficiency in the testing lifecycle
Why is Cloud Testing important for testers and developers?
Cloud-based infrastructure is highly scalable which means that developers or QAs can increase or decrease their use of testing resources as they require. The onus of maintaining and adding new devices is on the cloud-based provider. Teams can instantly log into the product and access the devices on the cloud. Cloud testing also provides a pre-configured environment along with tools that enable manual and automated testing across multiple operating systems and device configurations.
How is mobile cloud testing gaining momentum?
As per research by Statista, 54% of people use mobile phones globally as compared to desktops. Naturally, businesses and other organizations must develop mobile applications in order to cater to their users. Apps must be tested across a range of devices, and OSes, depending on their customer usage patterns. However, due to device fragmentation in the market, this has become a challenge.
It is time-consuming, effort-intensive and financially difficult for every business to purchase, update and maintain devices in on-site device labs. As a result, organizations have now started using cloud-based testing platforms that offer real devices to test on. These allow teams to perform comprehensive testing for their apps without incurring the infrastructural costs.
How are businesses adopting cloud for their web application testing?
Any web application must be tested thoroughly to ensure that it works seamlessly on all platforms where users might be present. This means testing websites on different browsers and browser versions, different mobile devices and different screen sizes.
Before BrowserStack, teams would have to maintain their own device labs with thousands of different devices to cover all the possible combinations. However, maintaining a device lab is not simple – one has to struggle with device malfunction, network outages, software upgrades, new model launches, and so much more. Instead of writing and testing code, teams would have to waste time, effort and money just to ensure that their basic infrastructure works.
BrowserStack’s cloud-based infrastructure takes all that hassle out of testing. Developers and testers can access 2000+ real browsers and devices at the click of a button, so they can focus on doing what they do best – building awesome websites. Companies like Microsoft, Twitter, RBS, Expedia use BrowserStack for their testing needs. OLX has been able to accelerate its testing process significantly, and now runs 550 tests per hour using BrowserStack’s real device cloud for automation testing.
What is Web application testing?
Web application testing, as the name suggests, refers to the process of testing any web-app for its functionality, usability, performance, compatibility, and security before making it available on the web. It is necessary to make sure that the web-app is behaving as expected, and that it offers a satisfactory user experience under all conditions.
How does BrowserStack help with web application testing on the cloud?
BrowserStack provides a real device cloud, using which QAs can test their web-app across 2000+ real devices and browsers. Additionally, it also provides resources such as:
- Instant Bug reporting with tools like Jira, Trello, Slack
- IP geolocation testing
- Support for multiple operating systems like Windows, MacOS
