(From the Q&A session after Ruud’s EuroSTAR webinar).
Q: Would you slice the performance testing with a load test tool on parts of the cloud to provide 24×7 availability with a distributed (physically throughout the main markets) performance monitoring as a strategy? – Bernhard Klemm
A: Only if the risks are high enough to want to do this. 24/7 availability checking is an expensive measure to use. To perform a thorough check on availability it is needed to slice and distribute, since we want cloud services to be available from multiple locations – Ruud Teunissen
