Helps to cater to on-demand capacity and load and is easy to use

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case is to do performance testing and load testing to determine which applications we release on the market to end-users. Before they go to the production environment, we perform a couple of tests to determine the threshold or maximum capacity our backend can handle. So we look at the capacity of our infrastructure and see if our backend can expand, how much it expands, where it goes, how it scales and if it impacts the response time. We can test all these features using Akamai CloudTest.

Pros and Cons

  • "The level of support is quite good and the integration is also very flexible."
  • "Akamai cloud test integration into our current CI/CD pipelines (i.e.) identify and resolve the issues during the sprint phase which helps in delivering an absolute product and reduces time to market/release."

What other advice do I have?

It all depends on what you're looking for, but this solution is exactly what we need for performance testing and load testing of this. We never have to panic during campaigns, because I usually don't know what's going to be the response. Thanks to the testing that can be done beforehand, I know what to expect from other vendors. This is the response time I expect from them. My rating for Akamai CloudTest is, therefore, nine out of ten.

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