We use a warehouse management system, my company is like a Dutch Amazon. We use LoadRunner to performance test the warehouse management system for peak load. So if Valentine's Day, Christmas, or whatever comes up, we try to run all functional loads through LoadRunner Cloud and make sure the peak count can be handled by the WMS. We use it almost daily. We have peak periods where the testing will increase, but nowadays it's so busy that throughout the year, it's almost the same. It's the same high load every day and we're testing continuously.
The amount of load on the system wasn't that large a couple of years ago for us to test. So the business case for performance testing wasn't pointing to investing in it, but now we have such huge, increasing numbers and increasing load that it's worthwhile setting up a structured and automated performance test and to invest in something like LoadRunner Cloud.
We use the cloud. The controllers and the dashboard servers are in the Micro Focus cloud. But we use our own load generators, which are on-premise. So we use a hybrid setup.
