With the growth and evolution of software, the need for effective testing has grown exponentially. Testing today’s applications requires an immense number of complex tasks, as well as a comprehensive understanding of the application’s architecture and functionality. A successful test team must have strong organizational skills to coordinate their efforts and time to ensure that each step of the process is efficiently completed.

AWS Device Farm, their mobile device cloud, uses immense scale to lower the cost of testing mobile apps by 90% compared to previous device clouds. Not surprisingly, AWS’s trademark combination of low price and broad coverage has quickly made it the go-to service for compatibility testing. That’s great, but load and performance testing is the truly expensive testing process in terms of
