Testing the cloud

Broadband, backbone and mobile wireless service providers see the cloud as an opportunity for growth. New applications running in the cloud drive new traffic to their network. The cloud also offers new revenues from new services that can be sold to customers.

The business models for carriers and how they relate to the cloud are evolving quickly, but one fact is becoming clear: to achieve success in the cloud market, carriers must actively ensure that they offer a high quality of service to cloud consumers.

A cloud is a shared computing platform available over the network used to run a variety of business or personal applications and the best way to assess cloud quality is to test it.
