Akamai CloudTest Review

It's intuitive to build performance test.


What is most valuable?

I have only used CloudTest and I consider it a very powerful tool.

How has it helped my organization?

I haven’t used it outside the CloudTest training. It is an option for Performance testing taken into consideration by my company.

What needs improvement?

I couldn't say, as I haven't used it outside the training or applied it to any project yet.

For how long have I used the solution?

The solution was easy to set-up and much more easy and intuitive to build performance tests. Also, in my opinion, scaling the grid was easier to set-up than JMeter, for example.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

The solution was easy to set-up and much more easy and intuitive to build performance tests.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

In my opinion, scaling the grid was easier to set-up than Jmeter, for example.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We haven't had any issues with scalability.

How are customer service and technical support?

I had a strong support during training. The trainer had a very strong lecture about the product, making it easier to use and to understand the core features.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

The solution used by my employer was JMeter, mainly because it is open-sourced and a lot of engineers already used it or know how to use it. I found CloudTest to be a solid alternative with a more intuitive design. Use of Amazon cloud is also a strong-point as I see more and more products using the cloud. I sure hope to have the change of using CloudTest more often on one of my projects.

How was the initial setup?

Considering that I have worked in VM environments for quite some time now, setting up was fairly straightforward and easy. Once the VM setup is in place, the rest of the setup is a piece of cake.
