Open Source software is the foundation of Tag1 Consulting’s business, and it is essential to our core values that we contribute to and support the open source communities we benefit from.

Experimenting with running Goose load tests from AWS, Goose has proven to make fantastic use of all available system resources, so that it is only generally limited by network speeds.

Load testing is a critical part of the quality assurance process in any business website. Knowing how your website behaves under load, and being sure it will stay up can make the difference between success and failure for your business. Retail websites require this for major events such as Black Friday and Cyber Monday. News outlets need to be sure that their readers can reach them and they can respond during major news cycles.
