Cloud Load Testing: Micro Focus LoadRunner Cloud
Performance testing is key for any web or mobile application today. Yet many organizations don’t have the resources or need to bring such technology in-house. Or, they may need a larger footprint for only a short period of time. For those organizations, Software as a Service (SaaS) can provide a host of benefits, including decreased costs and overhead. In addition, SaaS can provide users with the ability to quickly increase or decrease their software usage as projects and teams demand.
Cloud-based testing services can provide the benefits of comprehensive performance testing without the overhead.
SaaS performance testing solutions offer the best of both worlds: the flexibility of a service model with the capabilities of best-of-class technology. And when your testing needs change, you can easily scale the solution up or down to meet demand. There’s no need to purchase expensive hardware or hire the personnel to manage them. And for Agile development teams, that can be especially valuable.
To provide development teams with performance testing on demand for web and mobile apps, Orasi has partnered with Micro Focus to offer LoadRunner Cloud (formerly StormRunner Load).
