Performance Testing in the Cloud, a Deeper Dive

As discussed in the earlier blog on Performance Testing in the Cloud, performance testing tools must fit into today's DevOps workflows. This means that they should support both local testing and cloud based testing. Local testing for developers, early in the dev cycle, and cloud based testing later in the cycle for running larger tests.

Let's take a deeper dive into the cloud based testing scenario.

Performance Testing in the Cloud

Performance testing is an essential part of today's DevOps workflows. It requires the capability to run load tests both locally and in the cloud to address different users' needs at different stages of the software development cycle. 

The DevOps methodology allows development and IT operations teams to significantly increase the speed and frequency of deployment of software. In the 2018 State of DevOps Report, 75% of respondents to the survey increased frequency of deployments. And, 79% of DevOps teams reported improved quality and performance of their software.

Performance testing tools that fit into DevOps workflows help teams to shorten the development cycle and deliver high performance software (websites, apps, and APIs) faster.

Webinar: Load testing for Modern DevOps Teams with k6 and Load Impact Insights

If you're involved in software development and/or testing of websites, apps or APIs, don't miss this webinar on load testing with k6 and Load Impact Insights. k6 is our new, open source load generator, available for download on GitHub (https://github.com/loadimpact/k6).

k6 has been built from the ground up for use by today’s DevOps teams throughout the development cycle. Developers can use k6 early in the development cycle to load test as part of their standard Continuous Integration process.

With k6, you can run tests locally, behind the firewall (available now), and in the cloud on Load Impact's cloud infrastructure (coming soon). Test scenario scripts are created using ES6 JavaScript. This makes it easy to create test scripts without having to learn a new scripting language.
