Benchmarking vs Load Testing
Benchmarks are short duration tests designed to see how a system performs under a specific load. Load testing is a longer duration test that simulates how the system will perform under real world conditions.
Blockchain and performance testing
The blockchain is a whole new way to think about systems, services, and processes. It offers security and transparency that is extremely valuable for the financial services industry, but it may also be relevant for other sectors. It’s a potentially disruptive technology—a technology that may put many organizations out of business.
