Load Impact announces its next generation load testing solution

k6 + Load Impact Insights + Cloud Execution

Stockholm, Sweden - 26 June, 2018 - Load Impact, the leading provider of SaaS solutions for load testing of websites, apps and APIs, is excited to announce its next generation solution consisting of 3 key components: k6, Load Impact Insights and Load Impact Cloud Execution. It’s built for today’s DevOps teams and fits into software developers’ Continuous Integration workflows. Load Impact allows teams to deliver high performance software faster.


k6 is an open source load testing tool, available on GitHub. k6 allows developers and QA testers to collaborate on performance testing throughout the software development cycle. Test scripts are written in ES6 JavaScript. With k6, developers can run tests locally, behind the firewall. Local execution lets developers run daily load tests as part of their automated CI process. Cloud Execution allows much larger tests to be run later in the development and QA cycle.


"k6 is the result of collaboration between our Load Impact dev team and members of the open source community," said Robin Gustafsson, CTO at Load Impact. "We believe in the open source model for delivering innovative software solutions to the market."


Automated smart analysis of test results

Your k6 load test results can easily be streamed to Load Impact Insights for storage, analysis, sharing and trending. Insights’ Automated Smart Analysis gives you a quicker understanding of the source of your performance and testing problems. Performance Alerts, like the one shown in the screenshot below (“Too many URLs”), guide you to a fast resolution. Even if you’re not a performance testing expert, you can understand the test results and take the necessary action to improve performance of your software.



Cloud execution

The third major component of our new load testing solution is distributed Cloud Execution of k6 tests on the SaaS platform. Run much larger tests-- up to 5000 Virtual Users (VUs). Avoid the hassles of managing the cloud infrastructure needed for performance testing. Cloud Execution also lets you generate test loads from up to 10 different global locations.


“This next generation Load Impact solution lets developers and DevOps teams shorten time to market for higher quality software,” said Haakan Tylen, CEO at Load Impact. “Website, Application and API performance that meets user demand is a key aspect of product quality.”


Dev and test teams can try out k6, Load Impact Insights and Cloud Execution for free. k6 will always be freely available (see the GitHub link below) while Insights and Cloud Execution are available through a 30-day free trial. You can also request a demo.
