Extend maxDuration for tests

As a user I would like to run tests for longer than the 3 hour limit currently set with the maxDuration command.

    Sure, have you ever worked with big data (ie. ~500Gb) before? Processing this amount of data takes time, specially if you do this in the cloud. Now, imagine if you have to test this process. You'll have to wait until all the data processing is done. This usually takesĀ  way more than 3hr.

    Could you elaborate what kind of tests you believe require the ability to run over 3 hours?
