"Cloud testing and monitoring gives many of the same benefits that cloud services provide across the board, especially in terms of reduced costs and improved flexibility," says Denise Culver, research analyst with Heavy Reading Insider and author of the report. "Cloud testing and monitoring services all but eliminate the need for costly capex outlays, one of the biggest reasons that so many service providers and enterprises failed to adequately test and maintain their networks in the past."
Key findings of Cloud Adds a Silver Lining to Testing & Monitoring Solutions include the following:

Large-scale, worldwide scientific initiatives rely on some cloud-based system to both coordinate efforts and manage computational efforts at peak times that cannot be contained within the combined in-house HPC resources. Last week at Google I/O, Brookhaven National Lab’s Sergey Panitkin discussed the role of the Google Compute Engine in providing computational support to ATLAS, a detector of high-energy particles at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
Frank Ding, engineering analysis & technical computing manager at Simpson Strong-Tie, discussed the advantages of utilizing the cloud for occasional scientific computing, identified the obstacles to doing so, and proposed workarounds to some of those obstacles.
The private industry least likely to adopt public cloud services for data storage are financial institutions. Holding the most sensitive and heavily-regulated of data types, personal financial information, banks and similar institutions are mostly moving towards private cloud services – and doing so at great cost.

When it comes to cloud, long distances mean unacceptably high latencies. Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany examined those latency issues of doing CFD modeling in the cloud by utilizing a common CFD and its utilization in HPC instance types including both CPU and GPU cores of Amazon EC2.
