LoadRunner in the Cloud to help IT organisations optimise their website performance
HP has unveiled LoadRunner in the Cloud, a new application performance testing offering designed to help IT organisations optimise their website performance for changing business demands.
HP said that the on-demand software LoadRunner is now available via Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), making performance testing accessible to businesses of all sizes.
According to HP, LoadRunner in the Cloud allows businesses to protect the integrity of apps and website performance; and increase agility for quicker response to unplanned, ad-hoc situations with an on-demand, preinstalled performance testing application.
The company also offers testing services delivered via software as a service (SaaS) to help IT organisations further reduce costs and improve business results.
The HP Elastic Test enables IT organisations to utilise cloud elasticity to instantly expand testing capacity cost-effectively. It is designed for spike load testing and provides the ability to scale up to very large loads in a utility-based fashion. HP Cloud Assure delivers four of the attributes analysts believe are key to cloud computing, security, performance, availability and cost control.
Jonathan Rende, vice president and general manager for business technology optimisation applications, software and solutions at HP, said: “Application performance and customer loyalty go hand in hand.
“HP and Amazon Web Services are helping businesses increase their competitive advantage by ensuring their mission-critical applications and websites perform as expected and are responding to dynamic business needs.”
