With Cloud Computing, Who Needs Performance Testing?
With cloud computing we can add more hardware resources on the fly. Considering how expensive load and stress testing can be, why don’t we just add more power when needed?
This presentation will explain why, especially for situations where cloud computing is available, load and stress testing often falls short but is still required. It will also show how the queuing theory can provide a different approach which allows load and stress testers to add real value. Stakeholders and test managers can use the same theory to get a handle on the coverage and depth of the tests.
– Why performance testing so often fails to accomplish what we want
– Why relying on cloud computing alone is not enough
– How the queuing theory can provide a different approach to performance testing
– How the queuing theory can help you understand if the performance tests
