Summary

In this chapter, we have reviewed several ways of seeing and using the cloud in relation to testing and test architecture. We started the chapter with some definitions, followed by how to pick the right cloud provider. Then, we looked into how to test appropriately and the potential dangers of using a cloud provider for testing. We then looked into the opposite side of the cloud: testing an application in the cloud. Finally, we reviewed other ways we could use the cloud to our benefit for testing.

In the next chapter, we will take a trip into virtual, augmented, and cross realities.
