Introducing Practically Free Load Testing up to 1,000,000 Virtual Users

Its election season, and one of our clients got listed on the Drudge Report: a single page instantly got millions of hits before the site crashed. We thought it would be cool to provide an inexpensive load testing service that could test for this simple scenario so websites could make sure their site wouldn't be crushed when their page views go through the roof.

Agile Analytics, Ken Collier

I recommend this book to every developer or manager involved DW and BI projects, but this book has also a much broader appeal. The issues specific DW or BI are not far for every large project where databases play a major role, as it might be for instance in a mainframe environment.
