Why Load & Performance Testing in the 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.

Performance Testing an E-commerce Platform

Galeria Kaufhof In June 2015 our customer GALERIA Kaufhof relaunched
their E-commerce platform

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.

Building a Startup with NoSQL

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.

2nd Screen Mobile App: Backend API Load Testing

Having had the opportunity to support the grandcentrix team in May to help Quizduell im Ersten, I was happy to once again be called to assess another interactive TV show with a 2nd screen app.

RTL interactive For RTL interactive I tested a sophisticated backend for an upcoming casting show. The backend was accessed through their RTL Inside app. This opportunity presented me with a very interesting scenario and in this post I would like to outline how their system was designed and how I was able to test the performance and scalability of the architecture.
