Achieving real performance on the web begins with realistic testing and an understanding of the application and it's infrastructure. Testing realistically and for real results across web & mobile applications means leveraging the cloud. Agile development processes, complex multi-tier architectures, and the potential for massive (and sudden) load all require a different approach than historical apps. Come hear from Soasta, the makers of the CloudTest platform and CloudTest Lite, about their experiences and why companies need to change their expectations about what "testing" means.
