Resource Requirement Testing

What is Resource Requirement Testing?

Resource Requirement testing identifies the most optimal hardware and software requirements for a solution or its components. This includes determining cloud offerings vs local infrastructures, CPUs vs GPUs, HDD vs SSD, the ideal quantity of resources (cores, ram, and disk storage), etc.

How It Helps Companies

This testing allows companies to better understand their solution’s hardware and software requirements. By defining the requirements of its solution, businesses can optimize cloud resources to fit their needs while ensuring they pay the appropriate amount for performance. Resource requirement testing gives businesses the information they need to make those decisions and prevents them from wasting capital.


By using monitoring tools during a scale testing project, organizations can understand the computing resources their solution requires. Using this information, organizations can work with their cloud provider to extrapolate these required resources at scale and represent them in terms of cloud operating expenses. With this knowledge, businesses can ensure they’re pricing their product appropriately and can cover their cloud operating expenses as they grow.
