Love Your Data and Tear Down Walls between Ops and Test

How often have you deployed an application that was supposed to be load tested well but then crashed in production? One of the reasons might be that you never took the time to really analyze real-life load patterns and distributions.

In this podcast Brian Chandler, Performance Engineer, discusses how he has worked with Operations Team to not only start loving application-specific performance data captured in production but also help break down the DevOps walls from right to left by sharing this data with testers to create more realistic load tests (learning from real-live production issues).

Scaling Continuous Delivery: Shift-left Performance to Improve Lead Time and Pipeline Flow!

Transforming from Agile to continuous delivery by embracing DevOps best practices and a high degree of automation is a desirable goal for many IT organizations. From talking recently with companies such as Capital One, BCI, BCP, BBVA, and even our own engineering teams, the biggest challenge we’ve seen is scaling that transformation.

There are two approaches to mitigate that issue, especially for the performance phase: (1) increase throughput: run performance tests in parallel using Docker and (2) Shift-left performance: identify performance problems in early phases.

Learn more about these approaches in our blog reprint.
