Tricentis Acquires Flood IO
July 31, 2017

Tricentis has acquired Flood IO: a flexible and scalable on-demand load testing solution.

Flood’s breakthrough technology frees load testing from resource-intensive performance labs and “shifts it left” with a simplified and highly-scalable approach. Together, Tricentis and Flood are transforming load testing for today’s lean, fast-paced delivery pipelines.

Flood lets DevOps teams test how their applications scale with massive load generated from around the world. Test plans can be defined in open source tools such as JMeter, Gatling, and Selenium, or specified directly in the Flood interface.

“Times have changed. Old performance testing approaches are too late, too heavy, and too slow for today’s lean, fast-paced delivery pipelines,” explained Sandeep Johri, CEO of Tricentis. “Yet, releasing updates without insight into their performance impact is incredibly dangerous in today’s world—with competitors just a click away. Flood’s technology offers DevOps teams unparalleled flexibility for load testing early and continuously. This acquisition enables us to take our mission of ‘transforming testing for DevOps’ to the next level.”

The Flood team has joined Tricentis and will continue driving the Flood technology forward.

“At Flood, we set out to build insanely easy-to-use performance testing tools that help teams scale their apps to millions of users,” remarked Tim Koopmans, Flood co-founder. “Joining forces with Tricentis will help us advance our vision for achieving Continuous Load Testing in a DevOps environment. We’re excited about the opportunity to accelerate the path to Continuous Testing—making it faster and easier to ensure that applications meet users’ rising expectations.”

To bring load testing into the fold of Tricentis’ Continuous Testing platform, a fully-integrated offering uses Tricentis’ scriptless test cases for “shift left” load testing. This enables teams to:

- Start load testing with any Tricentis Tosca cross-browser test case

- Create smoke tests on the fly with the Tricentis Tosca recorder

- Integrate load testing into CI for immediate feedback

- Identify performance problems early — when they’re easiest to fix
