We wrote several articles on Cloud Computing, including SaaS, PaaS and IaaS. In a previous article, we wrote about EaaS in Cloud Computing. EaaS is relatively less known abbreviation in Cloud Computing.
Today, we will discuss about another terminology used in Cloud Computing : TaaS.
What is this TaaS in Cloud Computing?
Unlike the generalized terms like SaaS, PaaS and IaaS in Cloud Computing, we wrote that, EaaS has a bit stronger relationship with few big Brands like HP and Microsoft.
TaaS can be Tools as a Service is which is used by Citrix XenSerer. Citrix Tools as a Service is a new initiative from Citrix Support, it focuses on providing assistance to all Citrix environments and in a easy way.
Its use is œIn critical environments “ you™re in hospitals, you™re in trading floors “ you™ve got to get in front of those types of issues and you™ve got to build scalability into your services offerings, as Stringer of Citrix says.
But, there is another TaaS : Testing as a Service. This Testing as a Service is more widely used for the abbreviation TaaS in the field of Cloud Computing.
What is this Testing as a Service in Cloud Computing ?
Testing as a Service is a kind of software testing where a provider undertakes the activity of software testing applications for their customers as a service on demand. Testing as a Service offers a range of Cloud Computing based frameworks.
Testing as a Service provides Cloud Computing gives you to test tool as a Service (TTaaS) and before deploying the Software as a Service (SaaS) in the Cloud Computing. So you need not too much investments to run under Cloud Computing Platform.
As with all Cloud Computing based services; expenditures for software licenses are charged only as you use them.
So, TaaS can stand for both, but if Cloud Computing TaaS is said, it means Testing as a Service as it has more specific relationship with Cloud Computing.
