Content delivery networks, or CDNs, are one of the easiest ways to improve the performance of a web application. By caching assets on servers around the world, you can minimize the stress on the original server and dramatically improve load times. Load testing CDNs can help you quantify their benefits, identify any configuration errors, and choose the best provider for your requirements.

REST versus SOAP. It’s been an issue for a while now. And really, they’re just two answers to the same question: how to access web services. But deciding one over the other can be surprisingly difficult. SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol) is a standards-based web services access protocol that has been around for a long time. Originally developed by Microsoft, SOAP isn’t as simple as the acronym would suggest.

Most load tests look at high-level metrics. If there are issues, developers have to look deeper into the server logs to identify the bottlenecks. This is usually a problem: These server logs don’t necessarily include network metrics, such as a slow DNS server or third-party API. And they aren't particularly useful without knowing what’s considered abnormal and what's happening at the browser level. It eats lots of valuable time. Read more about Why the Network Matters in Load Tests.

We rely on APIs for critical aspects of our digital infrastructure. Much like the nails that connect and support a house's foundation, APIs ensure that the necessary parts of your digital network are connected. Understanding how they are behaving is vital to gain full visibility into the performance and availability of your digital assets.

We’ve all heard the stories about the overnight sensation that took decades to achieve. The “API Revolution” has that same feel to me. Some version of APIs has been at the heart of application development for many years, but as the web application world grew more and more connected and developers learned to leverage code built outside their own application, the API industry began to boom and flourish.

When it comes to APIs, performance is just as important as accuracy. No matter how good the features and functionality of your application might be, if it performs poorly by crashing or loading slowly, your users will lose interest quickly. With this in mind, we've put together a comprehensive guide to the fundamentals of API load testing.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) isn't just a buzzword - businesses across all industries are leveraging the technology today to solve a wide range of problems. Even test automation tools are benefiting from AI, from AI-powered visual recognition and intelligent test recommendations, to risk profiling and bug hunting. At every step in the QA cycle, we see AI infusing itself to accelerate test creation, maintenance and execution.
