HP powers application performance testing in the Cloud

7 Feb 2012 Palo Alto - HP has launched a new offering that allows partners to provide a branded solution for application performance testing in the Cloud, helping their customers to rapidly and cost-effectively deliver high-quality applications.

Enterprises need to quickly deliver web and mobile applications to ensure productivity and gain a competitive advantage. However, ensuring applications can perform in a production environment requires setting up a test environment for performance validation, which can be costly and time-consuming. Organisations with limited budgets are unable to invest in on-premise software and must rely on inexpensive or open source performance testing solutions.

With the new HP LoadRunner-in-the-Cloud offering, qualified partners use the flexible, on-demand service model of the Cloud to deliver consumption-based performance testing of Web 2.0, AJAX, mobile and other applications to their customers. The new offering complements HP's own solutions for performance validation, which span on-premise, software as a service and managed services.

HP's performance validation solutions and robust service portfolio enable clients to select the offerings that best meet their testing requirements, timeline and budget. The HP performance testing services portfolio is complemented by the on-demand, pay-per-use LoadRunner-in-the-Cloud solution available from partners, including performance testing-as-a-service, as well as testing from anywhere with large loadtests.

"Organisations that do not have robust performance testing may face application delivery delays or risk performance bottlenecks if they are unable to get timely access to testing resources", stated Matthew Morgan, senior director, Product and Solution Marketing, Software, HP. "The HP LoadRunner-in-the-Cloud offering allows partners to deliver cost-effective, on-demand access to leading performance testing in the Cloud."

The HP LoadRunner-in-the-Cloud partner offering, coupled with a partner’s cloud infrastructure, enables customers to:

  • Accelerate time-to-market with access to the hardware and software resources required to conduct application performance testing anytime, anywhere.
  • Deliver high-quality applications with a comprehensive view of system performance that identifies and eliminates potential bottlenecks before the application is deployed in production.
  • Simplify performance testing of complex applications with HP LoadRunner's TruClient, an easy-to-use, toolkit-agnostic solution that reduces testing cycles by cutting script time and correlation for Web 2.0 applications by as much as 50 percent.
  • Ensure cost-efficiency through subscriptions, with which customers can consume and pay for the application performance testing resources they need on a daily basis.

HP performance testing partners Orasi Software Inc., Genilogix and J9 Technologies have selected the HP LoadRunner-in-the-Cloud partner offering. The companies will use it to introduce new public Cloud offerings that extend their existing portfolios with short-term, pay-per-use web and mobile application performance testing solutions.

"Our clients are looking for a solution that offers flexible consumption for their performance testing initiatives", stated Caleb Billingsley, area vice president, Performance Technology, Orasi Software Inc. "With HP LoadRunner-in-the-Cloud, we can offer robust, industry-leading performance testing capabilities in a short-term, on-demand model that helps them meet their goals, without breaking the bank."

"Composite architectures, with so many moving parts, can easily become points of failure if not tested prior to deployment", stated Dennis Matson, director, Sales, Genilogix. "We are pleased to partner with HP to deliver a pay-as-you-go, on-demand option for application performance testing that enhances application quality and accelerates time-to-value."

The HP LoadRunner-in-the-Cloud partner offering is a key component of the HP IT Performance Suite, which helps businesses and governments in their pursuit of an Instant-On Enterprise. In a world of continuous connectivity, the Instant-On Enterprise embeds technology in everything it does to serve customers, employees, partners and citizens with whatever they need, instantly.

The HP LoadRunner-in-the-Cloud partner offering is currently available to qualified HP partners based in the United States and Canada for servicing their customers based in the United States and Canada.

Market pricing of the HP LoadRunner-in-the-Cloud solution is determined by participating partners on an individual basis.
