A major fashion retail group was changing the architecture of its websites. The aim was to increase website capacity to handle twice as many unique visitors.
Origin of the problem:
During the test, we detected that the customer had set up autoscaling, but it was not functioning correctly. Each time it took over 5 minutes to open a VM, and this resulted in degraded performance. Closing VMs took even longer, leading to financial losses.
ip-label conducted a first load test on the website. The targets were not met and, more significantly, errors quickly appeared. The group now had factual elements to enable them to fix the incidents.
The customer worked with its service provider to fix the problem. ip-label conducted a load test which enabled the customer to attain its objectives. The load testing process and its impactful outcomes were presented to the customer’s management committee.
