UNITED Courses

Certified Cloud Test Practitioner

Master the cloud’s intricacies and learn the difference between testing the cloud vs. testing apps on the cloud.

Course overview:

Cloud Technology is the fulcrum most on which new technologies ride on. Cloud united helps Testers understand the cloud testing methodologies. While the cloud has been in use for over a decade, many testers don’t understand the specific ways in which cloud-based implementations differ from traditional test environments. 

The CU Certified Cloud Testing – Foundation Level certification course focuses on essential cloud characteristics and cloud specific tests that a tester needs to know and hands-on exercises on several of these cloud service providers. The Certified Cloud Tester – Foundation Level goes beyond the basics of cloud testing and helps testers understand and perform various types of cloud specific tests and also understand the differences between testing the cloud and testing apps on the cloud.

Major takeaways:

➜   Support the creation of a test strategy from the perspective of the applications based on the cloud characteristics and various test types such as compliance, security, scalability, performance, resilience, disaster recovery and monitoring
➜   Support the creation of test environment by setting up and running docker images, clustering and using Kubernetes
➜   Setup load balancing and autoscaling for testing reliability, scalability, resilience etc.
➜   Perform cloud specific testing for hosted applications
➜   Perform data migration testing
➜   Perform tests related to multi-tenancy testing
➜   Perform basic security tests for cloud-hosted applications
➜   Perform basic load and elasticity testing for cloud-hosted applications

Best suited for:

Testers, Test Leads and Managers, QAs and basically anyone who tests or manages the testing of systems that involve the cloud.
