NCC Load Testing – proof we can take the strain

With several thousand end-users totally reliant on our solutions to run their retail, e-commerce and m-commerce operations, it is vital that our infrastructure is resilient. For that reason, we decided to carry out a number of carefully planned and structured load tests to ensure that our e-commerce operations could deal with the expected peak in web traffic in the run up to Christmas 2013. We appointed the load testing specialists from NCC Group’s Web Performance division, and the tests were conducted in three phases: mid and late October and at the end of November on the website of one of our largest customers. We are pleased to say we passed with flying colours.
