Experiences in Testing Infrastructure Projects

This is an experience report of solving testing problems in the operations and infrastructure domain. The purpose of this talk is to provide additional stories and considerations to testing outside software development, a topic currently with little published information. With this talk the attendees will have knowledge about possible testing challenges and testing solutions, to bring hope and add to into their own organisations when establishing IaaS (infrastructure as a service) solutions.

Problems to ponder:

Who tests, what can we test, what test phases apply, do we test or just find evidence? What test management tools do we really need?

Content will include:

– Scene setting and getting outside software development
– 3-4 real life example projects with problems and lessons learned
(including: building an infrastructure for data warehouse and life science document site)
