Free Cloud Based Load Testing Tools

Good load testing of web and cloud applications should involve many concurrent connections originating from diverse networks. To set up such tests on your own is not trivial and probably very expensive. Thankfully, there are numerous service providers, which allow to use their infrastructure for testing your applications.

A few of these offer free online load tests. These fall into the two categories of free On Demand Tests which usually allow to test a website with 5 to 10 users and free tier accounts, which allow to use a certain number of concurrent users after sign up.
