Cloud-Based Performance Testing

What is Performance Testing?

Performance testing determines how your website or application will stand up to a given load. You’d be amazed at what Performance Testing can discover about your application/system.

Why is it important?

If your site or application goes down, not only do you lose immediate potential revenue, your customers type their way over to your competitor.

How does it work?

We have this down to a science. See how we build confidence in our clients.

What is Performance Testing?


Load Testing checks an application’s ability to perform under anticipated user loads. The objective is to identify performance bottlenecks before the software application goes live.


Stress Testing involves testing an application under extreme workloads to see how it handles high traffic or data processing .The objective is to identify the breaking point of an application.


Endurance Testing is done to make sure the software can handle the expected load over a long period of time.


Optimization determines the software applications effectiveness in “scaling up” to support an increase in user load. It helps plan capacity addition to your software system.

Why is it Important?

Loss of Revenue

If customers cannot get to your site or performance is poor not only do you lose the business, your competitor gains business.

Brand Impact

Any negative experience with a brand is not only harmful in the short run, it bears a long-term impact on the brand that takes a long time to get out of the headlines and make customers feel comfortable again.

Resource Costs

Cleaning up after an outage can be expensive and stressful for all parties involved be it internal staff, vendors, or customers. The costs of this situation analysis, rework, and possibly staffing can be expensive factors.

How does it work?

Performance testing can be a complex topic, but it comes down to having a good plan, execution, and metrics.


Performance Testing starts with understanding the application under test, then developing a Test Plan for execution and a reporting format.


Execution begins with a Smoke Run to ensure a stable system, then is ramped up to do a full load test. From there our engineers push a system to failure through a stress test and then apply endurance tests to ensure sustainability. Optimization is discussed throughout the execution phase and can be customized to fit your solution.


Reporting is a continuous process. Reporting metrics and format are established early and reported continuously throughout the process along with a final detailed report on how everything went, what the issues are and recommendations for improvement.



Our 20+ years in QA and 12+ years in Performance testing complex software is a major reason our clients choose to partner with SWAT to conduct Performance Testing.


Our performance team is scalable and can react quickly. Through both staffing and on-demand lab models, we can scale to your project demands and schedule.
