I did a webinar with SOASTA on 9/29/2011, in case you missed it, I’ve copied the description and links from SOASTA’s Info Center so you can have a look. If the twitter-verse is to be believed, it didn’t suck. 🙂
Constrained by inflexible test hardware, poor tool scalability, exorbitant pricing models, and lack of real time performance information, performance testers have been forced to cheat for too long! Cloud Testing opens up elastic, full-scale load generation from global locations at affordable cost, rapid and accurate test building, and real time views of internal and external performance metrics.
- Stop removing “think times” to work around technical or license issues
- Build tests using real business workflow, not just a flood of page hits
- Run tests that preserve session states and accurate timings, end-to-end
- Inspect every component as tests run, not just from the outside-in
“If you can see it in your mind…
you will find it in your life.”
