We have been listening to all your nice feedbacks this last year and decided it was time to implement a new cloud provider in our platform. That’s why we are excited to announce that OctoPerf now supports Digital Ocean.
Cloud is not AWS only
Running large tests from AWS is quite easy and their platform is very powerful but:
- Testing an application hosted in AWS from AWS machines is not entirely realistic because of dedicated connections between datacenters,
- The AWS regions are nice but don’t give a complete worldwide coverage,
- Even AWS can be overloaded at certain peak periods.
In these cases, it is important to be able to run load from an external location so that the tests remain realistic.
New feature old price
Of course as every new feature, this integration is available to all our users right now. In terms of region coverage, this means you will find 8 new zones in OctoPerf:
- New York
- San Francisco
Thanks to this, a lot of you will be able to run their tests from a location closer to your users.
You can use Digital Ocean for your Virtual User validations:
