What is the contrast between volume, and load testing?

Volume test tests performance under intense pressure, a vast number of server requests, or data load. It's like you want to check how your car behaves at the maximum possible speed.

While Load testing, on the other hand, is about testing performance under optimal conditions and expected daily data load. Like you want to test your car at average driving speeds.
