SendGrid Rolls Application Load Testing Service

SendGrid, the developer of email delivery APIs and infrastructure which has major operations in Anaheim, said Thursday that it has launched a new, cloud-based service for load testing their applications and APIs. The firm said its new service lets developers stress their web apps and APIs with thousands of concurrent connections, and makes it easy for developers to routinely load test during their daily coding and deployment routines. SendGrid said the new service is free to developers, and comes out of its SendGrid Labs effort, a program it has to internally incubate new software and ideas.
