Application failure due to performance-related problems is preventable with pre-deployment performance testing. After deploying applications, many teams experience trouble with availability, reliability and scalability. These difficulties typically occur as a result of one or more of the following deficiencies:

  • Load test inexperience, inhibiting the creation of performance tests
  • Failure to anticipate and understand true user behavior
  • Inability to quickly identify a bottleneck and determine the root cause of the problem
