BlazeMeter Anticipates Traffic Torrent by Releasing Five Advanced Load Testing Features

New Load Testing Capabilities Offer Developers Stronger Performance Testing Tools for Accelerated Holiday Usage

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 11/27/12 -- BlazeMeter, provider of the Apache JMeter™ based load testing platform, today released five new features to their already rich load testing cloud. The suite of new features further simplifies load testing just in time for the expected rush of traffic over the holiday season.

BlazeMeter's New Load Testing Features

- Google Analytics Integration *Exclusive*
Retrieve relevant site data from your Google Analytics account and integrate automatically into a new test setup.

- Comprehensive Protocol Support
Stress test your SQL systems (MSSQL, MySQL, Oracle), HTTP/S, Web services, Mobile and TCP/IP.

- Test Behind the Firewall
Use your VPN credentials to integrate a series of our dedicated load servers into your private network.

- Smart Functional Testing
Analysis of .JTL files to assess errors or failed transactions of any tests run using a JMeter script to ensure assertions are met.

- Master/Slave Reporting
Test your website and aggregate multi-geo locations results into a single report OR run numerous tests, each executing a different script from a different geo-location and then aggregate results into a single report.

"It's crunch time from now through the holiday season and sites are scrambling to prepare. Potential customers are typically lost when a page takes even as little as five seconds to load. So, at a time of year when traffic is at its most intense, effective load testing is critical to ensure that sites can cope with the highest volumes of visitors. Ultimately it can save them from losing customers and money when competition is fiercest," said Alon Girmonsky, BlazeMeter Founder & CEO.

He continued, "Companies are recognizing the urgency for regular performance tests to keep their own products viable online. Our new features respond to the growing needs of developers and we will continue to provide cutting edge features to optimize and simplify load testing for all. We provide developers faster and easier methods to implement a serious load testing protocol based on best practices."

As an added holiday promotion, users who sign up for BlazeMeter's Annual plans have a limited time offer for the holidays. Users can save 20% (compared to monthly subscription plans) They can load test 50% more concurrent users, use double the load engines and receive 20% more testing hours.

When applications are hosted on servers, they produce immense quantities of logging data. Quality engineers should verify that apps are producing log data that is existent, correct, consumable, and complete. Otherwise, apps in production are not easily monitored, have issues that are difficult to detect, and cannot be corrected quickly. Tom Chavez presents the four steps that quality engineers should include in every test plan for apps that produce log output or other machine data. Learn the steps so your team's apps not only function but also can be monitored and understood from their machine data when running in production.
Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Alex Lovell-Troy, Director of Solutions Engineering at Pythian, presented a roadmap that can be leveraged by any organization to plan, analyze, evaluate, and execute on moving from configuration management tools to cloud orchestration tools. He also addressed the three major cloud vendors as well as some tools that will work with any cloud.
DXWordEXPO New York 2018, colocated with CloudEXPO New York 2018 will be held November 11-13, 2018, in New York City and will bring together Cloud Computing, FinTech and Blockchain, Digital Transformation, Big Data, Internet of Things, DevOps, AI, Machine Learning and WebRTC to one location.
With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
Discussions of cloud computing have evolved in recent years from a focus on specific types of cloud, to a world of hybrid cloud, and to a world dominated by the APIs that make today's multi-cloud environments and hybrid clouds possible. In this Power Panel at 17th Cloud Expo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed the importance of customers being able to use the specific technologies they need, through environments and ecosystems that expose their APIs to make true change and transformation possible.
