WebLOAD provides three options for running distributed, cloud load testing. This includes:
- SaaS load testing using the WebLOAD cloud
- SaaS load testing using a private WebLOAD cloud instance
- Cloud load generators with on-premises WebLOAD
WebLOAD Cloud – Fully Managed SaaS Load Testing
Using the WebLOAD SaaS, you can perform cloud load testing without having to install any component in your data center. You log into the WebLOAD Cloud and create or upload scripts, define load plans and execute.
Using our web tools, you can follow the load test execution progress in the Web UI, generate different reports, and analyze performance statistics when the tests complete running.
All components are stored on the WebLOAD Cloud, including your scripts and reports, and can be consumed at any point.
WebLOAD Cloud- Private Instance
In addition to the regular SaaS offering, we can create a private WebLOAD cloud instance dedicated to you but fully managed by our team.
The private instance can be set up on the WebLOAD cloud or alternatively on your company’s account with a cloud provider, where you handle the infrastructure costs.
A dedicate instance allows our team to tailor the infrastructure settings and product deployment specifically for your needs. While this offering is typically more expensive it allows much more flexible pricing models.
As with the full SaaS option above, our team manages and maintains the WebLOAD software deployed without you having to install or manage anything on-premises.
Cloud Load Generators with On-Premise WebLOAD
Even if you need WebLOAD to be installed on-premises and managed by your team, you can still utilize WebLOAD’s cloud load generators.
In this configuration, the WebLOAD software (development environment, console, reporting) will be installed in your data center, but the load can be generated from any cloud provider, using our load generators.
This entails a fixed cost for the cloud infrastructure and maintaining the software yourself, but it saves you the infrastructure for the load generators which are allocated on demand when they are needed.
