Simple, smart, and scalable cloud-based load and performance testing for web and mobile apps
StormRunner Load is a flexible, cost effective software solution that allows us to run large concurrency testing on our customer facing web applications. Multiple cycles can be quickly ramped up for testing changes to our business websites/applications.
If we had not run this project in the way we did, a hit and run test like this would have needed 600GB of memory and 60 CPUs. We would have to buy these machines, get them up and running and then decommission them after one week which doesn’t make any sense at all. When you need this kind of resource, cloud is the way to go and that is the value of StormRunner Load.
We used StormRunner Load for performance testing. We looked at peak times and at double peak to make sure that we could cope if we had a big influx of people. We also went much higher than that to see at what point we would start to see any detrimental effects on our website. We validated 20+ websites for a minimum of 700 transactions every second, and that is key to keeping the business going.
