Next week, I am heading to Rome to present at the International SOA Conference – Moving SOA into the Cloud. I’ll be giving the presentation I gave at DataCenter 2011, but with additional content. Of course there will be some specifics about how to approach testing SOA in the Cloud but also content on the type of problems cloud testing allows to find across all environments we usually test in ie. Lab, staging and production environment via real customers’ story.
For example, how easy it is for a badly designed page to cap out your bandwidth (yes, we’re at 238mbits/s!) and max out your webservers with a low volume test in a staging environment.
How a fix in a load balancer firmware can help you go from this (horrible) situation ie. 6% error rate, response rate to the roof after 15min, bandwidth capping out.
To this much better situation ie. 0.001% error rate (can’t get better than that!) with 172K virtual users.
Here is the presentation I’ll be giving:
