Performance Testing in a Containerized World

Add to calendar

Containerizing applications introduces major changes to the way we run those applications. With Docker and other container orchestrators, we can now share infrastructure and resources, but this introduces the need to control the way resources are used—from a sanity perspective first and a financial objective second. There are several use cases for containerization, from the legacy application replatforming to the creation of a new stateless microservice. Any of those may lead to a specific approach, depending of the risk it brings. This presentation will expose typical risks of containerization from a performance perspective and describe some testing approaches that should be introduced. Learn about the cost-saving opportunities that containerization and performance optimization may bring.
