NeoLoad & CloudTest: What's the Difference?

Scale Performance Testing Across the Entire Organization

With today’s faster releases and shorter development cycles, companies are struggling to keep up with the volume, velocity and variety of their performance testing needs. All too often performance testing remains a highly manual, time-consuming process requiring specialized expertise. QA has become a bottleneck.

NeoLoad’s ease of use and advanced automation make performance testing a team sport so every team can test faster to release faster — everyone from centralized performance engineering experts doing integrated end-to-end testing in a traditional approach to autonomous users testing individual components and APIs in a DevOps environment.

Bottom line: Your teams require less time to do more work, more accurately, with fewer people.

Test Fast to Release Fast

Reduce testing cycles from weeks to days, from days to hours. Drag-and-drop approach avoids time-consuming scripting “by hand.” Automatic updates mean no more rewriting scripts every time code changes. Get more done faster with fewer resources.

Make Performance a Team Sport

Open up performance testing to all different teams with different skill sets. A standardized platform that’s both easy for non-experts and has enterprise-grade muscle for the experts promotes effective and efficient collaboration and scales performance expertise without adding more experts.

Quality Assurance

Simplify the Transition to DevOps

Complexity is the #1 obstacle to “test early and often.” Simplify testing to empower every team to automate continuous performance testing into their go/no-go decisions every time they check in code — when it’s easier and less expensive to fix problems, before they ever see the light of day.
