|Load testing is an essential
component of quality assurance. It can identify problems with an
application’s efficiency, stability, or scalability before
it’s released. The cost of fixing performance problems after an
application enters production is high. The cost of restoring reputations
and confidence is higher yet. Our methods for testing, optimizing, and
modeling application performance are unique and produce consistently good results. Learn more about
fixed price load testing.
||There is a tremendous value in understanding when a
company is going to have to spend money on their IT infrastructure.
Performax characterization projects determine what spending is required on the
infrastructure and when it will be needed to meet growing capacity demands.
Our methodology ensures the right business processes are modeled, optimized,
load tested, and characterized in order to minimize and accurately budget
for infrastructure costs.
|Enhancing Application Scalability
|All applications have inherent limits to scalability. At best, these limits
are by design. At worst, they are not understood. One of the most demanding
tasks in performance engineering is to modify an existing complex application
to enhance scalability to levels far beyond original design goals. Our
formula for success is to assemble a small team of senior application
developers/architects, application subject matter experts, and a senior
performance engineer from Performax to identify bottlenecks, brainstorm and
prototype solutions, and evaluate the effectiveness of changes in a
controlled environment using our standard performance testing methodology.
||We work with development organizations to turn efforts
Many development organizations have software performance initiatives
underway. These efforts can easily become uncoordinated or focused on the
wrong areas. Performax works with development organizations to implement a
structured approach to performance engineering to generate positive results
quickly and maximize return on investment.
||OpenSTA Quick Start
Benchmarketing is the characterization of application
scalability, responsiveness, and throughput for sales or marketing
We have helped the world's leading hardware and software companies close
millions of dollars of business through technical marketing of benchmark
and performance characterization data.
||Performax believes that tools are secondary to knowledge, experience, and
skill. For this reason, we remain tool agnostic. For customers seeking the
advantages of open source tools, Performax brings years of experience using
and supporting open source load testing tools such as
OpenSTA. See our
services page for more details.
