Next, you'll differentiate between continuous integration and continuous delivery and outline the lifecycle of CI/CD in cloud. You'll explore the concept of QA testing for cloud and how sandboxing is used in this process. You'll outline how to implement regression and load testing for cloud resources and distinguish cloud configuration management from cloud change management.
