The last part of our blog posting series "Why Load and Performance Testing in the Cloud?" will give an answer to the question "what is the difference in all this to pre-cloud times?". The article is based upon a talk I gave at the AWS PopUp Loft in Berlin.
The second part of our blog posting series shows an overview on the different types of performance testing. Learn more about load testing, scalability testing, stress, spike and soak testing, configuration testing as well as availability and resilience testing. The article is based upon a talk I gave at the AWS PopUp Loft, DevOpsCon 2016 and other occasions.
At the AWS PopUp Loft in Berlin I gave a talk on why load and performance testing is still (or especially) relevant in the era of cloud infrastructure. I expanded the talk for AWS Summit Berlin 2016 and again at DevOpsCon 2016. Here in our blog you will find it in three crunchy bites, beginning with performance and scalability and the importance of performance testing in the cloud era. I will give an overview on the different types of testing and explain the differences between pre and post cloud times.
In June 2015 our customer GALERIA Kaufhof relaunched
their E-commerce platform galeria-kaufhof.de.
Several teams worked for about a year on this greenfields project aimed at building a new foundation for their customer shopping experience.
Prior to the official relaunch we conducted comprehensive performance and load tests for quality assurance, configuration testing and capacity planning.
At NoSQL Matters 2014 conference in Barcelona I was privileged to give a talk on how we at StormForger go about screening and selecting NoSQL and other technologies; with which to build our products. Although NoSQL is not necessarily the primary focus here at StormForger, we still use a number of these exciting systems and I would like to share our thoughts.
