Webscale CloudEDGE Application Testing

Proactive Readiness for Critical Shopping Events

Webscale CloudEDGE Application Testing is a synthetic test designed to simulate real end-user patterns and shopping behavior on the ecommerce application, while measuring the site’s responsiveness, and overall performance.

Why Businesses need Ecommerce Application Testing

Research shows that online consumers go elsewhere if they deem a site too slow (taking more than 3 seconds to load), or if they experience availability issues, such as a failing checkout.

While the Webscale platform provides multiple caching layers, and proactively auto-scales application servers, ecommerce business owners must understand the impact that architecture and code dependencies can have on a site’s functionality, availability and performance. It is equally important to understand how their site responds under heavy load, especially before events that are likely to create high traffic.

How Does Ecommerce Application Testing Work?

Webscale CloudEDGE Application Testing executes a series of tests against a staging site. User sessions are replicated to make the same API calls that real production users make, simulating site traffic down to the last detail for logged in and guest users. Tests are conducted all the way through to a successful checkout experience, including third party API calls, if relevant.

The service then captures these results using the Webscale Portal, with the traffic logs available to view in the Webscale Traffic Viewer, for as long as the temporary testing application is available.  A report is also made available, on-demand, to describe the tests, the patterns, and the results.
