uTest Launches Load & Performance Testing Services

Crowdsourced Testing Leader Offers Unique Load Testing Options via Its Global Community of Professional Testers

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - February 24, 2010) - uTest, the world's largest software testing marketplace, today announced the launch of its load testing services, offering unique alternatives including live load, simulated load and hybrid load testing. These services help uTest customers ensure their web applications are optimized for peak performance under heavy, real-world loads.

Through its global community of 23,000 professional testers from 163 countries, uTest now makes load testing more accessible and cost-effective. Load testing services include:

  • Live Load: A team of live testers from around the globe can test an application simultaneously, enabling customers to see how their web app performs under truly real-world usage conditions

  • Simulated Load: Requiring no live testers, simulated load testing provides customers with a complete analysis of a web app's performance under peak synthetic load

  • Hybrid Load: Combining live testers with simulated load tools, uTest's hybrid load testing enables customers to perform functional testing while their web application is under heavy synthetic load

With 24x7 access to testers' bug reports, load testing results and other metrics, customers can monitor and measure an application's performance in real time and under real-world conditions. Each customer is assigned a dedicated uTest project manager to assist them in all their testing initiatives. And because uTest is an on-demand service, customers pay only for the test cycles they need, which dramatically reduces their total cost of testing.

"Live load testing enables us to learn how real users impact the performance of our web application," said Marc Isikoff, Technical Manager at Watchitoo. "More importantly, it helps us identify which areas need to be addressed before we bring a new version to market. Live load testing has been critical to the maturation of our app."

"As our customers have grown in maturity and technical sophistication, so too have their requests for load and performance testing services," said Doron Reuveni, uTest CEO. "Unlike traditional load testing tools that have proven prohibitively expensive and require specialized skills, uTest's load testing services leverage its community of professional testers to provide fast, cost-effective load testing."
