Track: Performance Testing
Though dealing with a single distributed system may prove challenging, the game is significantly changed when considering a distributed platform. A platform can consist of 50+ distributed systems and components, all integrated to process millions of transactions per day, dealing with millions of users, and hundreds of terabytes of data. The ramifications of one component or system not scaling to support the hundreds or even thousands of transaction per second can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars in lost revenue for a single system disruption. Performance engineering must be implemented across the development lifecycle, affecting all aspects of IT. Performance testing is critical, but may be performed too late to provide the level of assurance needed from such systems. In the MASSIVE system platform world, the diversity of technologies requires a disciplined approach to building, measuring, and ensuring system scalability, performance, and throughput.
