Data migration to the cloud with QA | Software Testing Company a1qa

Is it worth starting data migration to the cloud?

Prompt tech market evolution forces businesses to harness new technologies and strengthen their IT apps.

  1. Round-the-clock access. Now employees are not strictly dependent on the office as cloud storage allows working at any time and any place leveraging 24/7 ecosystem availability.
  2. Total scalability. By choosing cloud, companies can up- or downscale their computing resources thus adjusting the services depending on their needs and objectives.
  3. High data security. Concomitant process security is noteworthy as information can be restored easily due to data backup.
  4. Accelerated adoption. Software and hardware resources can be reconfigured into new information systems and business services in less than no time.
  5. Cost-effectiveness. Companies pay only for the services and capacity they use. There is no longer a need to purchase special equipment and applications for the maintenance of a data center.

Remember it’s not a walk in the park

Despite all that said, data migration can be risky and stressful.

Salvage transition with cloud testing

Companies gather information for decades, and when the data migration time comes, its volume may be unprecedented. Thorough testing can ascertain the quality of the delivered product and ensure that sensitive information won’t leak.

Functional testing

The engineers review feature by feature and verify whether it complies with the set requirements, integrates seamlessly with the corporate environment, and meets users’ expectations. Also, they check the correct operation of API, data connections, and all information in new storage for compliance with a previous one.

Test automation

By leveraging its best practices, QA specialists scan internal and external vulnerabilities and evaluate compliance with set standards optimizing resources, easing the workload, and eliminating the human factor.

Security testing

IDC’s survey showcases nearly two-thirds of organizations see security as the biggest challenge for cloud adoption with prevailing hacker attacks.

Performance testing

The team examines the virtual environment for its resilience to stress and load, endurance, and network latency to detect weak points in its capacity and scalability.

Bottom line

A shift to data storage in the cloud became an across-the-board need within the advent of the informational age. It brings a range of benefits, including access from any location, cost-effectiveness, and scalability. On the contrary, its implementation is rather challenging and requires investments, including time and money.
