Your online presence is growing on both desktop and mobile, and your users expect flawless experiences, especially during peak events that you may or may not already be anticipating. All online businesses — including retail, banking, media, and publishing — need to ensure their site or app is ready for those sudden spikes in visitor traffic.
CloudTest from Akamai is one of the largest, highly scalable, global load testing platforms to help you quickly validate if your business is ready for success on that big day. It allows you to safely simulate your largest events in production with precise control, while producing a live analysis of what your site or app is capable of on your big day, and helping you drill down to the source of any performance bottlenecks.
It is a powerful combination of technology and talent that allows you to leverage load testing software as a service, while being supported by our best-in-class performance engineers with a collective 200-plus years of load testing experience.
It is also available as a subscription (without services) for integrated always-on load testing in production.
CloudTest facilitates rapid test creation without coding and helps get a true picture of user experiences by showing how your systems respond to sudden spikes in user activity.
