Soasta CloudTest is an integral part of our performance testing strategy and key in generating load across geography. This is an awesome performance testing tool for web based applications, able to generate load multiple geographies, dynamic ramp-up to any levels of virtual users. View full review »
Aditya Kattamuri says in a StormRunner Load review
Senior Performance Engineer at a retailer with 1,001-5,000 employees
StormRunner itself is a pretty good hybrid product of Performance Center. Keeping up with DevOps, thus the best feature of StormRunner is that we don't have to build and maintain infrastructure anymore. Whenever we have to test lab scale applications, and in a scenario where we don't have to test every day, we don't have to build the machines and pay for it. Instead, we can get the infrastructure from on-demand from StormRunner, and its ability to run it anywhere just by opening it in browser is the best part. The evolution of StormRunner starting with supporting LoadRunner along with the open source technologies like JMeter and Selenium. Their unit testing tools are actually very advanced in the region of the product. That's why I would recommend anyone to use StormRunner, even though something is not supported now, eventually it's going to be supported by StormRunner. That's the kind of credibility that's needed for any customer when it comes to relying on a product or going for a new product. View full review »

QAmgr9845 says in a LoadRunner review
QA Manager at a tech services company with 1,001-5,000 employees
The features that are most valuable are synchronization capabilities and the ability to interact with it on different types of systems and protocols. It is a market leader and it integrates with different applications. When you compare it to JMeter, LoadRunner is more flexible and has more capabilities than JMeter to support different technologies. View full review »
Riccardo Marchiani says in a BlazeMeter review
IT Systems Development Manager at a transportation company with 1,001-5,000 employees
The reuse of JMeter scripts has allowed us to have continuity with the past, meaning that we didn't need to change the way we write scripts and collaborate with business users. Furthermore, it has given us a common way to modelize our campaigns with different technical partners, or different development teams. View full review »
reviewer1080093 says in a BlazeMeter review
The most valuable feature is simply the ability to have a basic POST request while simulating many users at one time. Being able to determine either a number of iterations or having all users hit the application for a duration, are both useful options. View full review »

Desil Ponnatt says in a LoadRunner review
Technical Leader at Valtech
One of the most valuable features of LoadRunner is the correlation feature which is automated now. All year when I started this with a lot of manual processes, it would actually capture dynamic values, but now these new versions have made it very easy for any newcomer to form whatever you want. Get in other agitation settings which are very detailed and any tester can go through everything they intend to do, customize their execution patterns. The results are very detailed, presenting a very comprehensive summary that anyone can read and understand. View full review »

JeanSOCHA says in a Performance Center review
Architecte principal with 1,001-5,000 employees
The controller and analysis engine are a piece of cake, configuring the scenario and gathering results are the most important to me. From my 15 years experience, I measure that I spend only 5% of my time to script, other tasks are more consuming: understanding the business process, making the dataset relevant and reliable with workflow (with VTS for instance which is very great), finding how and what to measure and so on.

IT Analyst at a tech services company with 10,001+ employees
To me as we have used most of the MQ stub," MQ recording" is the best useful feature i would say -because of its flexibility to configure various MQ recording methods as per the implementation and "pass through"feature too. View full review »
SeniorMaff3f says in a Performance Center review
Senior manager at a transportation company with 10,001+ employees
One of the things in the airline business, we see that our number of users varies on a day to day basis, from season to season. So, from an airline business standpoint, we are looking at scalability as one the major things and how can we adapt the solution in an agile fashion. If we want to ramp up the "Our Views" account, from, let's say 10,000 to 50,000, how can we do that? That kind of scalability is the main key thing we are looking at. View full review »

Director of QA at a insurance company
It helps us to test the performance of our applications at load, and what sets it apart is the number of types of applications that it covers from web to back office, and even mobile. Makes multiple protocols available to us. View full review »
Mark Chase says in a Performance Center review
Test Management Architect at a insurance company with 1,001-5,000 employees
It provides a different platform for testing in an organized fashion. One of the big things is data warehousing, data analytics, you want to get from being reactive to proactive to predictive. Those are the progressions that we want to make. It's going to be extremely difficult when you start to incorporate testing platforms, testing techniques, to tooling, into pipeline, into any of these DevOps pipelines. If we can't collect the data, if we don't really know what's going on, then it becomes very hard to make testing decisions from tooling to technique to platforms. Performance Center innately provides you the ability to manage those assets. And it's also a different type of testing, independent of something that might be more unit based. We want to be able to test at the integration or the system level, which is a completely different approach to testing compared to a developer who may be doing something very, very low-level. Instead of changing the class. We want to make sure that all these areas of testing are not just being done, but they're also able to be audited. Because, without access to the data, it makes it very difficult to implement solutions going forward. Whether they're new or they may be something that's up for modernization to keep up with DevOps and pipelining. View full review »
Joaquin Huante says in a StormRunner Load review
Support director of academic systems
It's very valuable because with StormRunner we can validate the capacity of our systems. Specifically, we use it for one system that is from two years ago. We have an increment of the users, about 300% more, so we need to assure that the quality of the service keeps up with the users. StormRunner helps us to validate that. View full review »
Managereb4c says in a Mobile Center review
Manager at a consultancy with 10,001+ employees
The fact that it allows users to test on real mobile devices instead of emulators is something that projects have told us is beyond compare. Your app or your website won't behave on an emulator like it will on a real mobile device, no matter how great the emulator is - even if it's the one that comes from the OS developer that ships with the development studio. There's just no substitute for a real mobile device with its hardware constraints and the way it will behave in the hands of a user. View full review »
Managereb4c says in a Performance Center review
Manager at a consultancy with 10,001+ employees
The fact that you can have tens of thousands of virtual users and just expand an army of load generators to hammer on whatever application you're testing. It seems to be so scalable, and we haven't approached any limits. We have some projects that have over 100 load generators and they don't have many issues using the tool. View full review »
Ameet Patil says in a LoadRunner review
Principal consultant at a tech vendor with 51-200 employees
The ability to do multithreading. That's available in any performance testing tool, but the number of protocols that this particular tool supports has been very good. The support and the stability of those protocols are amazing. That's why I like LoadRunner. View full review »
