HP Powers Application Performance Testing in the Cloud

Dubai, UAE, March. 18, 2012 – HP today 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. Organizations with limited budgets are unable to invest in on-premise software and must rely on inexpensive or open source performance testing solutions.

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

“Organizations 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,” said Tayfun Topkoc, HP Software Director , HP Middle East. “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 withHP LoadRunner’s TruClient, an easy-to-use, toolkit-agnostic solution thatreduces testing cycles by cutting script time and correlation for Web 2.0 applications by as much as 50 percent.(1)

 Ensure cost-efficiency through subscriptions, with which customers can consume and pay for the application performance testing resources they need on a daily basis.
