Performance Testing Cloud-hosted Applications
Cloud computing and cloud-hosted applications will alter the way you think about and carry out performance testing. Based on his experience with projects at Microsoft, Dennis Bass explores how cloud platforms pose new opportunities and challenges for performance engineers, and what that means when bringing your next generation applications onto the cloud. Neelesh explores what's the same and what's different with cloud-hosted applications compared to traditional ones. He explains why we can't put off performance testing of cloud-hosted applications until the very end as we usually do with traditional software. Find out why improper performance test planning can result in inconsistent or invalid findings. Avoid unexpectedly high cloud testing costs by accurately estimating the type and amount of computer capacity your application will need. Take away an understanding of the advantages and challenges of hosting the load generators in the cloud and testing cloud-based applications.
