Load Testing

Load Testing Services

are designed to answer two basic questions:

How many simultaneous users can a website or application handle before failure?
What can be done to accommodate more users simultaneously with reasonable response times?

Why Perform Load Testing?

1Users Love Fast Websites

The digital world moves too fast to wait on sites to load.

If your business relies on your websites, you risk immeasurable revenue loss by not improving site speed and page load times. Don’t know where to start or what the bottlenecks are?

Find out how fast your site or application is, and how it compares to other sites in similar industries and categories. Create a better user experience for your site visitors.

2Faster Websites Attract More Revenue

Is improving site speed really worth it? Indeed it is. Just look at the numbers.

Shopzilla load testing practices helped them reduce page load time from a high of 6-9 seconds to as low as 1.2 seconds, resulting in dramatic reduction in bounce rates and revenue gain for their business.

3Tested Equals Reliable

When launching a new website or application which has never undergone load testing, it’s impossible to know whether even a small amount of simultaneous user actions will lead to failure. Why risk the adverse impact of a poor performing site launch, potentially causing irrevocable harm to your business?

Perform a load test and find out what your software and hardware limits are, and resolve any bottlenecks before launching.

4Be Prepared For Sudden Popularity

Company exposure, social presence and marketing efforts will lead potential customers to your site. How many users can your website handle?

It’s best to prepare in advance, and perform load testing before launching your promotional live event, TV commercial, or Adwords placement, to find out what vulnerabilities exist and get a cost-effective solution to prepare for an increase in site traffic.
