When IDEXX Laboratories shifted business models to sell directly to veterinarians, IT needed to be ready to scale fast.

 

Challenge

  • Anticipated 10 times the load within a couple of months by going direct to customers
  • Applications that needed to scale were failing at 15 percent of required load

Solution

CloudTest

Result

  • Load testing found 29 actionable items to fix including hardware and code updates
  • After troubleshooting with SOASTA, IDEXX was running at six times production loads and the launch was a resounding success
  • Read case study

Tom Poirier IT Manager IDEXX Laboratories

"The problem with a lot of people who aren't familiar with load testing is they think it's just a bandage you put on right before launch. That is not the way to look at it."
