Microsoft: Testing private/intranet applications using Cloud-based load testing
Cloud-based Load Testing Service can be used for performance and scale testing of an application by generating load from Azure. This type of load generation can only hit/generate load on an internet/publically accessible application. But we have seen many times customer needs to load test their application which is not publically accessible. Reasons could be many, some of them are listed below:
- Testing an internal application only – In many large scale organizations there are applications/web sites that have the cater the need of whole organization. It becomes crucial to test it with peak load to eradicate any performance/stress related bugs.
- Testing the application internally before releasing it over internet – Before actually going into public for a big gung-ho launch, organizations love to make sure that there is no performance glitch or the worst site will not crash in high user load.
To provide support for above scenarios we are working on a feature using which users can load test their internal/ABF (application behind firewall) applications. Before talking about the solution, let us walk you through the following flow chart to figure out the best tailored solution as per your requirements. You can then read about a particular solution (1-5) and try it out.
