Cloud scalable

  • Scale to hundreds of thousands of concurrent users, and generate hundreds of thousands of connections in minutes.

  • Cloud-based load testing leveraging the power of Azure is like having a whole performance lab at your fingertips.

  • Of course you can run your performance test from on-premises agents too!

Cloud scalable

Generate load from multiple regions worldwide

  • Run tests from one of many global Azure datacenter locations to minimize latency and simulate users' real-world conditions.

Free allocation and flexible low-cost pricing

  • Pricing is per virtual user minute (VUM) - a measure of how long your test is and how many users the test simulates.

  • You get a generous allocation of virtual user minutes free each month.

  • See the section Performance & Load Testing at the bottom of the Visual Studio Team Services Pricing page.
