The Load Storm test is designed to simulate real users coming to the site, logging in and browsing the site bursting some of the caching mechanisms typically found on managed WordPress hosts.

WP Oven had a whopping single error on Load Storm and kept a sub 400ms response time. This was the fewest of any company in the price tier. An excellent showing.
