Expands Availability of Neotys Cloud Locations; Enables Testers to Replicate Production-like Conditions in Minutes

Boston– February 25, 2013–– Neotys, a leader in easy-to-use, cost-effective load and performance testing tools for web and mobile applications, today announced it has added HP Cloud Services as a cloud provider. HP joins the group of hosting providers already accessed by customers including Amazon Web Services, Rackspace US & UK and CloudSigma.

By using HP Cloud Services through the Neotys Cloud Platform, application developers, performance engineers and operations professionals can rapidly implement production scale tests on web and mobile applications across thousands of servers. The NeoLoad Load & Performance Testing solution integrates on-demand cloud load generation from the Neotys Cloud Platform, providing an easy-to-use and affordable way to leverage the benefits of using the cloud in load testing campaigns. It is designed for organizations that need to execute high-volume load tests but may not have the necessary infrastructure and/or time to requisition and configure internal servers.

The NeoLoad Load & Performance Testing solution is ideal for applications that have users in multiple geographies as the solution enables testing of the entire application delivery chain from the network to the various geographical regions of the users. Additionally, the “pay as you go” model helps organizations reduce capital expenditures while ensuring operating expenses are incurred only for load they actually use.

Neotys’ cloud testing platform is fully integrated into the latest NeoLoad version 4.1 which means that testers can replicate production-like conditions for all web and mobile applications. This includes all relevant components; client devices and WIFI or mobile networks. NeoLoad 4.1 is the industry’s first tool that combines WAN emulation and performance testing in a single, integrated solution. Customers benefit by having real-world mobile network conditions incorporated into their load test environments, including bandwidth, latency and packet loss simulation. The integration improves the realism of mobile load tests which helps organizations increase the quality and performance of their mobile applications.

Other key features & benefits of Neotys’ Cloud Service include:

  • Cloud Management: Cloud Load Generators can be scheduled and managed from the customer area of the Neotys website. Users can even reserve machines to facilitate setting up the firewall. Load Generators can be started and managed directly from the NeoLoad Controller GUI.
