SmartBear Software has updated Ready! API to include new options for one-click deployment of cloud-based load tests in Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), improving continuous delivery of high performance APIs for developers and testers.
Agile software teams are increasingly being required to perform more complex testing earlier on in the delivery lifecycle.
While API performance is paramount to a seamless consumer experience, it is often overlooked due to the skills and time traditionally required to perform pre-production load testing.
As organizations build out their API strategy, they need simple and fast ways to resolve speed and scalability issues in the APIs they develop, and they need tools that fit within their budgetary and time constraints.
“Load testing in Ready! API is by far the easiest way to know how well your API scales in response to large volumes of traffic,” said Paul Bruce, API Product Manager at SmartBear. “Pulling in the power of Amazon EC2 cloud resources into a load test is a fast and inexpensive way for anyone on a software team, developers or testers, to be confident that their API will handle high demand situations gracefully.”
Ready! API 1.5 includes updates to LoadUI NG Pro to make it easy for developers and testers to tap into the power of cloud computing to execute large-scale, distributed performance tests from a single interface.
With minimal configuration, software teams can load test their APIs from a variety of locations around the world, managing cost and complexity with the freedom to choose what types of cloud-based resources to use for different testing scenarios.
