Azure Load Testing is a new offering from Microsoft to help developers drive application performance and resiliency at scale.
This is a fully managed Azure service and developers using Apache JMeter scripts can generate high-scale load and use insights to catch and fix bottlenecks before they affect the live application.
As always, the use of Azure removes the cost and time intensity involved in managing infrastructure. Here you can generate the high-scale load and use Azure-specific integrations to optimise the application.
Azure Load Testing integrates with:
- Azure Monitor
- Application Insights
- Container Insights
Knowing how an application behaves under stress will save many organisations on huge lost revenue and customer dissatisfaction and it is a service we were excited to see announced at the end of last year.
