Features

These are some of the core features StormForger has to offer…

What people say about us:

Galeria Kaufhof GmbH

We used different open source and commercial tools to conduct performance and load tests. After creating reference tests we decided StormForger would be the right tool for the job. Performance analysis *is* a tool decision.

Head of Technical Platform Online
Galeria Kaufhof GmbH

The flexibility of StormForger enabled our platform engineering team to run large load tests targeting different environments and data centers with ease.

GRANDCENTRIX GmbH

For the German interactive TV Show Quizduell im Ersten, we reached out to Sebastian Cohnen after the show started with some issues. Working closely together, we conducted large scale performance tests, to assess the ability of our system to withstand the anticipated load of 1 million users.

— Ralf Rottmann, @ralf
MANAGING PARTNER
GRANDCENTRIX GmbH

We had great help in getting confirmation that the backend we built for the sayHEY messaging platform is able to withstand the expected load. We have a special protocol to handle web clients using sayHEY, which was quite a challenge to model for a HTTP load test. We were quite surprised to see some special behavior, but were able to fix them right in time before launching — thanks!

— Pablo Beyen
FOUNDER & CEO
BEVUTA IT GMBH
RTL interactive GmbH

We were actually quite relaxed during the show premiere. Everything worked flawlessly and our complex workflows performed pretty well. Sebastian provided a great deal of help with his professional guidance and the extensive load tests!

Yoochoose GmbH

We at YOOCHOOSE use load tests to assess our recommendation engine and tracking APIs. Being able to send well defined load patterns against our systems and getting detailed analytics on service latency, throughput and error rates is a perfect fit for our performance analysis needs.

Railslove GmbH

We used Sebastian's services to load test parts of the Eurovision Song Contest 2013 backend we've been building at Railslove to support the app-based voting. Using load tests gave us excellent insight in performance issues and how to address those – before the big launch day. We were able to manage the risk of performance issues, work iteratively on issues and bottlenecks, further verifying each stage using load tests.

Dealini AG

With Lars I load tested our Python based mobile app backend. After improving the very helpsome findings we ended up with great performance. He gave me an impressive preview of the JavaScript DSL by StormForger to define load test cases: a DSL to create my own load test is the way to go Tip-top!

— Matthias Egli
BACKEND DEVELOPER
DEALINI AG

As a full-service provider for nation-wide special promotions for large retailers we are relying on a solid IT architecture to handle the load of our web and mobile solutions. I asked my development team to checkout our backend performance using StormForger. The short version: Thumbs up! We’ll use StormForger for every launch now. Thanks!
