PERFORMANCE TESTING OF APPLICATIONS HOSTED ON AWS CLOUD
While cloud technologies have solved traditional challenges like lengthy procurement times, high initial costs, data center maintenance issues etc, there are new challenges which need to be addressed with these new cloud technologies.
There are many challenges that we need to address with the cloud but here are few key challenges
1.Balancing the price and performance
2.Best auto scaling configurations
3.Having proper throttle to protect down-streams
Performance Testing tools can simulate the workload expected on our IT systems using virtual users so that we can measure our system performance and can tune the performance issues if there are any. We can also figure out the required optimal configurations for our application so that our IT systems can perform at its best.
In this talk, we will discuss about few key areas that we need to focus on when doing performance testing for applications hosted on AWS cloud and we will also discuss about few best practices for Key AWS services like ECS, Kinesis, Lambda, DynamoDB.
