S12-203: Planning For The Perfect Storm: The Value Of Peak Testing

Track: Performance Testing

Christmas 2004 was devastating to Comair, a subsidairy of Delta Air Lines. A winter storm during the holidays along with an overloaded flight tracking application wreaked havoc on the company. It caused the loss of their CEO, millions of dollars, and their reputation. This is a perfect example of how a combination of events can devastate a company.

This presentation will be centered around the three main questions:
Has anything in IT changed since then?
What about the Cloud?
Are our performance worries all in the past?
Scott Moore will demonstrate the value of performance testing and how to properly plan for your perfect storm. In this presentation, attendees will learn tried and true guidelines that can be used to plan for realistic peak loads and understand what worse case looks like before customers do.
