“Not Free But Close Enough!”
We have worked hard to make our prices as reasonable and flexible as possible. By offering the Community Edition at no charge, we expect developers to quickly adopt it for running performance tests as part of their automated build and continuous testing processes. The prices of the other paid plans are far lower than our competitors at the high end of the market, and even people using the Community Edition can purchase a Day Pass or a Week Pass to run tests as large as they want – the LoadLogic record is 500 load agents, 350,000 virtual users, and over a million hits per minute! The application under test was an e-commerce site that also ran in the cloud, with 300 load balanced servers in EC2. Think Godzilla versus Mothra with Godzilla (LoadLogic) winning!
The cost to run a test that big? The LoadLogic Linux load agent costs 5 cents an hour, so that translates to $25. Go to any load testing vendor and ask for a quote for 350,000 users – after you recover from sticker shock, come to SQALogic where you will learn the true meaning of “Load Testing On Steroids”!
