Shared Load Generator Marketplace

Motivation: As performance engineers, we usually own some Load Generator machines in our team, but not all of these LGs are fully used all the time, it’s a waste of resources.
 
The idea is building a platform to allow different teams to share and borrow idle LG machines from each other:
 
1. User can share idle LG machines and use the same amount of resources for free when needed;
 
2. Usually the user's demand for LG resources is not fixed, this can maximize the use of existing resources;
 
3. Due to the wide distribution of shared users and the majority of individual users, the performance test results will be more accurate;
 
Planed features for next step:
A platform for users sharing free LGs amount different companies/individuals.
Some of companies/individuals wants to do the performance testing, but not frequently, to buy lots of LGs will increase the cost, and the LGs are free in most of time.
Our platform can increase the LG usage and help them control their cost.
