The cloud provides two major advantages to load and performance procedures that help testing teams better model realistic behavior: instant infrastructure and geographic location. Cloud-based load testing also lowers the total cost of ownership, increases flexibility and allows testers to understand the impact of third-party components. So you're sold on using the cloud; here's what you should look for in a cloud-based load testing solution. One of the most dangerous moves software developers and testers can make is being lulled into a false sense of security. For example, when application features and performance levels meet expectations during pre-production, only to crash and burn when presented to real users in production. In that same vein, if your organization has any kind of performance testing strategy, chances are you're conducting load testing. However, yo... (more)

Continuous Performance Validation | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #ContinuousDelivery

If you've been following along with the happenings here at Neotys, you know that we've recently pioneered Continuous Performance Validation (CPV), a process that enables teams to produce faster applications, deliver new features and enhancements in less time and simplify interactions across Dev, QA, Ops and business stakeholders. Whenever a company presents a new concept to the industry, you might be inclined to only think of it as the next batch of marketing mumbo jumbo designed to sell you software you don't need. While it's wise to remain skeptical of burgeoning initiatives, ... (more)

Continuous Performance Validation | @CloudExpo #DevOps #IoT #BigData

Achieving Continuous Performance Validation with Synthetic Users In most modern development groups, there's a big focus on creating code that works. The idea goes that in more traditional, waterfall approaches, errors in code that aren't fixed until late in the cycle are much more expensive to resolve due to unintended consequences. Today, some groups practice test-driven development as a way to ensure that code is always functional while others work with short agile sprints where all code produced must be usable in the field by the end of each sprint. There's a common understand... (more)

Mobile Performance Testing | @CloudExpo #DevOps #IoT #M2M #ML #BigData

If you read the title and assumed this post would be filled with baseball analogies, you'd be right! It's game day and all those fans who fill up major league stadiums, those are your application users. They are invested in the game and have shown up to watch the players (i.e. your application) perform. Depending on how the game plays out, your audience will either head home elated or full of disappointment. The great thing is that in your case, unlike in the case of traditional baseball games, there doesn't have to be a loser. You can consistently ensure happy mobile users by set... (more)

The Ins and Outs of Stress Testing Web and Mobile Applications | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps

Falling beneath the umbrella of performance testing, both load and stress testing play an important role in assessing the availability and performance of your web or mobile applications under expected and extreme load. While the terms "stress testing" and "load testing" may be used interchangeably within a testing team or organization, the two differ when it comes to their definitions and purpose. Stress Testing vs. Load Testing Load Testing: A performance-related testing process that places simulated demand on software, web or mobile applications in order to measure responses an... (more)
