Cloud infrastructure testing services consist of solutions used to test the physical and other components that are connected with virtualized layer of the cloud. Cloud-based testing services concentrate on troubleshooting and monitoring critical cloud-based applications to ensure data security and improve quality of experience. Security testing process involves identifying bugs within the software code and debugging it to enhance the application’s functionalities.
Cloud infrastructure testing market has registered a significant growth momentum due to increasing popularity of cloud-based services and witnessed the increased deployment of cloud based services across various verticals in Asia Pacific region. Cloud infrastructure testing service finds its applications in banking and financial institutes, enterprises, government and healthcare sector. End-user’s demand for improved quality of experience and growing need for well-defined service level agreements have increased the uptake of cloud infrastructure testing services for data security, reliability and performance issues.
Some of the major drivers that are fuelling the growth of cloud infrastructure testing market are increasing deployment of various web, mobile and desktop based applications, utilization of automated testing tools, growing cyber-security threats, and strict compliances and regulations from regulatory authorities and government. However, lack of Knowledge regarding cloud infrastructure security testing, limited domain-specific tools and high initial investment in innovation activities, are hindering the growth of cloud infrastructure testing services in Asia Pacific region.
Enhanced communication infrastructure, affordable virtualization technologies and rising uptake of cloud based services in small-medium businesses is likely to accelerate the cloud computing and testing services market growth.
The cloud infrastructure testing services market can be segmented into verticals, types of network security systems and tools. On the basis of verticals the market can be sub-segmented into banking, financial services and insurance (BFSI) sector, public sector, manufacturing sector, retail sector, media & entertainment, telecom and healthcare sector. Network security services segment includes security monitoring system, firewall systems and private networks system. On the basis of tools the market can be further sub-segmented into open source tools such as SoapUI, & LoadUI, and closed source tools including Spirent’s cloud testing tool.
Key participants in cloud infrastructure testing services market focus on introducing new cloud infrastructure testing solutions in order to outperform competitors and to attract new customers. For example in May 2012, Spirent Communications enabled enterprises to authenticate availability, performance and security in the cloud, and deployed its cloud application and infrastructure testing solutions in cloud services ecosystem of HP. Another crucial strategy that is being followed by major participants in Asia-Pacific cloud infrastructure testing market is partnership and joint ventures with key industry players. For example in 2012, HP collaborated with Apica, a performance monitoring and load testing services provider, to enhance their service portfolio. Deployment of Apica’s suite tools in HP’s cloud services resulted in improvised customer cloud-testing ability with load testing and performance monitoring support. Further, cloud testing service providers have introduced a new business model known as “everything as a services”. This model enables the testing solution vendors to directly work with their clients. However, instable nature of security breaches, upswing in technological abilities of non-ethical hackers for causing new security crises and cyber-attacks across the world have insisted the cloud service providers to invest more on development of enhanced security solutions.
Some of the key players identified on this market are Spirent Communications, International Business Machines Corporation (IBM), Netmagic Solutions, Accenture Inc., Hewlett-Packard Company, and Cisco Systems Inc. among others.
