I'm new here and this is my first post.
Currently we are doing manual testing within a local closed environment. Our Ops team is working on building an AWS environment using VPC, RDS for the DB's etc.
We have used Testcomplete (Smartbear tool) in the past but find it to be a resource hog. If we were to move this tool to the cloud, it would also require bidirectional communication to a local license server which our Ops folks don't want to do for security reasons. Another thing is, our QA people don't have Dev backgrounds so we are probably going to look at a solution that has browser recording capabilities with minimal scripting. Most of our testing is browser based however, we want to expand into performance testing as well. I've heard there are some good tools out there that will work well on a Selenium foundation.
I guess what I am asking is, based on others experiences, what automation testing tools have been successful for those using AWS?
