We’ve just opened a new load testing region, Seoul (South Korea).
We’re pleased to announce today the launch of the Asia Pacific (Seoul, South Korea) region. Companies with infrastructures based in Korea can now leverage our Korean load generators to measure the performance of their applications.
Load tests can now be run smoothly from South Korea using Amazon Web Services. Seoul is well-known to be digital nomads friendly.
Future expansion Amazon is currently extending their datacenters to the following new locations:
OctoPerf last update lets you add an on-premise provider easily, so you can do load tests behind the firewall.
We are proud to announce that we support On-Premise load testing! What is On-premise load testing? Sometimes, web applications to test are behind firewalls. It may also happen that the application should not be available publicly until in production. Our on-premise feature allows you to test those applications without opening any firewall port.
You can now setup a machine to act as a load-generator on your private network. This post explains how to setup an on-premise load-generator within minutes.
OctoPerf last update improves the overall reporting: percentiles are displayed in the result table.
OctoPerf last update focused on improving the overall reporting with, for example, the possibility to insert page breaks in the generated PDF report.
The result table We worked hard on the result table: from the way the metrics are displayed and sorted to the CSV export, we reviewed this report item so you can get the most revealing information from it.
The percentile metric Until now OctoPerf analysis section only came with a specific report item dedicated to percentiles.
OctoPerf last update aims to automate the subscription process. You can now buy, renew and cancel plans on your own.
This short post describes the modifications made to OctoPerf for its last update, and how they can let you save time while preparing your load tests.
You may need to have a large performance test done for yesterday. In such case the process to get a license with the appropriate number of virtual users must be as straightforward as possible.
Subscribing to a plan In OctoPerf, it’s a matter of minutes:
OctoPerf last update aims to help our users improve their productivity while load testing their applications.
This short post describes the modifications made to OctoPerf for its last update, and how they can help you save time while load testing.
Our goal is, and has always been, to ease the work of load testers. Creating test reports using Word / Excel can take a lot of time.
Exporting the report That’s why we automated this process in OctoPerf, our load testing solution. Even as your performance bench is running, you can edit the generated report:
To improve the quality of our test reports, we enhance them with features you will love.
Traction or Features Why improving our reporting system? We were aware that some features were missing to make it easier to drill-down to bottlenecks. But, we prioritized those features low at the moment because we were focused on gaining traction for now.
If you have read How we greatly improved User Engagement, you know that we care about our customer needs. We carefully collect and prioritize customer feedbacks. And, at some point, we decided to get back to development to make some major improvements, based on what our customers experienced with our tool.
4 minimal UI tweaks we did to dramatically improve our trial conversion rate.
The goal of any Saas Application is to convert as many trials as possible to paid customers. To improve your application, what do you absolutely need? Feedback. We are using a live chat support app to get feedback on how users are using our SaaS app.
We were greatly surprised by the results. Many of our users were stuck at the very first step of load testing their web or mobile app.
Why we think remote work is the new coming trend in digital companies.
The world population has grown by 30% since 1990, going from 5 to 7 billions people. The distance from workplace to residence tends to increase due to the life cost within cities, like in San Francisco, where someone is renting a backyard tent for 899$ per month, for people willing to have a temporary home until finding a decent one.
Why should we stay at a single place when having a digital company like ours?
Learn how you can spend thousands of dollars by trying to save a few hundred ones.
You are a brand new startup. No cash flows in at the moment. What are you trying to do? Survive. You are saving every single penny to last as long as possible. You stick with free tools, or stay with freemium plans. Are you really saving money by doing this?
How it happens Once your startup launch is successful, you’re growing fast and are rapidly acquiring new customers. As it grows, the tools you used at the beginning are less and less adapted to your changing needs.
OctoPerf, our Cloud load testing tool, is made using massively open-source technologies. Because sharing is caring, this blog is a way for us to share how we made it.
We are proud to announce the opening of our Tech Blog. We really wanted to have a place to share technical thoughts openly. Why so open? Sharing technical stuff on our platform is like releaving secrets about how we built OctoPerf, our SaaS load testing tool.
OctoPerf wouldn’t exist without the open-source community.
We are widely using open-source technologies to build better software. It would be unfair to keep all the great things we have done with open-source technologies just for us.
