Cloud

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.


Why Load & Performance Testing in the Cloud?

Cloud

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.
