LoadUI Pro agents are now available for download on Amazon's AWS Marketplace!
If you are a LoadUI Pro user you can now easily deploy your LoadUI Pro agents in Amazon's cloud. This functionality was available before, but the addition to the AWS Marketplace makes installation and deployment much easier.
Distributing your load tests in the cloud is a great way of getting extra load for your load tests without having to deal with the up-front cost of purchasing and setting up your own physical computers. LoadUI Pro Agents in Amazon's EC2 also has the added benefit of being able to generate load from multiple locations around the world by letting you specify the region for the EC2 instance. That way you can make sure you API is on par with your performance needs, and within your SLA, at a global scale.
While LoadUI Pro agents are included in the LoadUI Pro license at no extra cost, Amazon will charge you depending on the amount of traffic you send through EC2, in accordance with their Amazon EC2 pricing.
