Continuous Integration (CI) is a development practice that requires a team to integrate code into a shared repository several times a day. Each check-in is then verified by an automated build, allowing teams to detect problems early.  With services such as RedLine13 it is now cost-effective and easy to integrate load testing into this lifecycle.

One of the leading open source products is Jenkins.   Jenkins manages and controls development lifecycle processes of all kinds.  Providing one of the best tools for building dev to ops lifecycle.
