Known initially as Flood IO, Flood was founded by Tim Koopmans, Mikel Lindsaar, and Ivan Vanderbyl in 2013. Flood set out to automate the deployment of open-source load testing tools in the cloud to allow performance testers to see results quickly and focus on delivering quality.
Flood was born out of our experience as load testers needing to move from running load tests from our laptops and into the cloud. This created its own challenges managing servers and collecting results. Realizing we weren't the only ones with this problem, so we created Flood.
After a successful few years running load tests with some very successful companies, Flood was acquired by Tricentis in July 2017. Joining the Tricentis family allowed Flood to grow the product offering, adding browser-based load testing with Flood Element, integration with qTest, and on-premise load testing with Flood Agent.
Flood's core team are 100% remote, and we believe strongly in building a balanced and inclusive work environment.
Being part of Tricentis, we have offices in a dozen cities worldwide, but we primarily operate from:
Level 3, Suite 4, 2-12 Foveaux St. Surry Hills, NSW 2010, Australia
Vienna, Austria (Tricentis HQ)
Leonard-Bernstein-Straße 10, 1220 Wien, Austria
All data consumed and produced by Flood is transferred through an encrypted connection and encrypted at rest. This includes our time series results, account data, log files, and test artefacts.
Flood provides SSO with support for most modern directory systems so that you retain control over access provisioning and data isolation.
Flood Hosted and On-Premise load generation enables you to retain control of all data and network configurations while load testing.
Flood is SOC2 compliant.
Flood Grid handles deploying load generators such as JMeter or Element to the cloud at the press of a button, so that you can focus on results.
