LoadTeam is load and stress testing the way it should be: real world, geographically distributed desktop computers running full-stack browsers ready to find out the limits of your site.
"Traditional" load testing sites use cloud-based virtual machines to load test your website. One problem with this approach is that all requests sent to your site come from one or a few cloud computers. A single network bottleneck between the testing virtual machines and your website means you will never know how many users your website can take. Another problem is that full-stack web browsers that support modern HTML5 technologies such as Ajax, WebGL, video, require a lot of memory and processing power, which can be expensive even for the cloud and that cost is passed on to you. In fact - in order to save costs - traditional load testing services commission virtual machines just before a test starts and then decommission them once the test completes. It means you have to wait a long time until all virtual machines are booted up before your test starts.
LoadTeam is different: your test is going to be run by real, geographically distributed end-user computers. Testers get paid to run tests, so everybody wins.
LoadTeam employs lots of testers around the world. Each tester downloads a copy of LoadTeam client software which runs quietly in the background waiting for new tests to be run. When a load test is submitted to LoadTeam, a request is sent to testers and they all test your website, simultaneously. Testers get paid to run tests. Our community of testers is huge and it keeps growing!LoadTeam
