Performance Testing

Builds performance quality into your systems, using the best tools to fit with your infrastructure and architecture.

Performance Testing from Ten10

Our Performance testing service provides assurance that a system will perform at an acceptable level when there is a high number of users or volume of data throughput. We typically use specialist simulation software to replicate the user loads and data volumes predicted during peak load.


We recommend that performance testing is incorporated as early as possible in the systems development life cycle (SDLC) – in partnership with performance engineering – to identify and resolve issues. Clients who adopt an integrated approach and build performance into their products enjoy much greater trust from their users and importantly minimise associated reputational risk.


Our performance testing specialists carry out a discovery phase with clients to determine exactly how the application or system is used in order to accurately design truly reflective performance test scenarios. We are skilled in the design of performance test frameworks to simulate your product’s behaviour with a range of conditions to determine if it is capable of supporting a predefined volume of business transactions during a set period.


Clients are presented with clear, user-friendly performance test reports. We help clients to understand and diagnose performance issues, as well as identifying opportunities to improve system quality through tuning and optimisation.
