AWS Device Farm

AWS Device Farm is perfect for small teams who don't have enough resources to conduct large scale testing scenarios or even large teams who would like an easier time with testing on various devices. [AWS] Device Farm makes it very easy to interact with a multitude of devices right from the browser.

[k6 (formerly Load Impact)] is well suited to run performance automated suites and to run stress tests, spike tests and load tests[.] We can run tests from recorded [sessions] but we cannot run npm modules and we cannot run nod js libs[.]

The users have no issue. The IT staff have learned to work with the software with the help of AWS support. I find it very effective. Could it be easier? Of course. That doesn't mean this isn't a great solution. I would recommend it to anyone based on usability. Overall, it is easy enough to use.

We had the enterprise support with AWS, so overall support experience was good with great engineers on the back providing answers. As you may know, overall AWS support is different and this is not different. Responses through the regular web support channel came easily, fast and accurate. We had questions/issues which were solved fast. Documentation is good as well, especially around the test automation pieces.

I got more features and handy within AWS Device farm than AWS Cloud9

K6 is a very different kind of tool to the other load testing tools we tried. Most other tools like LoadComplete for example are more focused on creating tests from a user interface, recording tests for running later, etc. These are all very good and useful, but if your focus is running load tests on APIs only, K6 is a very good option. It's also open source and therefore can be used even if you don't have the budget for buying a pro version of a load testing solution
