Atos Origin has announced plans to offer cloud testing services to customers introducing a framework that will provide the assurances that hesitant users have been looking for.
The services specialist has built the test and acceptance management services solution on a pay-per-use model helping customers plan and then test as they delpoy projects to the cloud.
The move by Atos Origin could potentially point the way for other resellers looking to gain extra services around cloud computing. It could also help unblock the log-jam that has built up as users wrestle with security and performance concerns.
"The market for cloud computing is set to grow fast and we have identified testing services as one of the first and fastest growing areas," said Francois Gruau, senior vice president at Atos Origin.
"Testing in the cloud is flexible, cost efficient and fast, helping clients to get services and products to market more quickly," Gruau added.
