Performance Test Lead at a energy/utilities company with 1,001-5,000 employees
It supports an extensive portfolio of protocols. It supports everything from the very basic web HTTP, which is kind of the bread and butter of load performance testing tools, to Citrix, Oracle, and even some Real X, and others. The breadth of the product is very valuable. It is a very powerful tool. They pitch it as the market leader and it kind of is. It's that big “one-tool-fits-all” kind of option. You don't need to go and get several tools, each of which supports an individual kind of protocol. You can do pretty much everything on the entire stack with one tool. That makes it good.

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 »

QA Automation Engineer at a tech services company with 51-200 employees
The metrics are a great feature for analyzing each test. Being able to see the errors compiled, along with their responses, has been very useful. We also love having the ability to compare multiple test results in one screen. The multi-test feature is very useful as well. The ease for creating tests in BlazeMeter has been wonderful.

We were doing load testing. We were testing web servers, and we needed to confirm that our servers were performing as well as the old ones. View full review »
CTO636 says in a BlazeMeter review
Chief Technology Officer at a non-profit with 51-200 employees
* Easy to make small changes to the test without reconfiguration, so we could step increases in load and find the limits without risk in breaking the test scripts. Consistent testing allows for confidence in the results and ease of use by the team. * Integration with New Relic - provides insight as to why the test had the results and how we can improve them. New Relic was already in our tool belt, so it was nice to not need to change to an unfamiliar tool. 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.

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 »

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 »
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 »
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 »
Erik Pena says in a Performance Center review
Senior Presales Engineer at a tech company with 51-200 employees
High scalability. Web-based testing. The interface. If you're familiar with the days of using LoadRunner, when you had to have the 32-bit client, using a web-based client is fantastic. You can spin it up relatively quickly despite the fact that it's enterprise software. You can test a huge variety of applications, not just web-based systems, but SAP, Oracle, web services, pretty much anything out in the market place, but it's mobile-based testing. View full review »

Qa manager at a tech consulting company with 10,001+ employees
For me, it's the fact that I can train my team on a single tool. It really is kind of our Swiss Army Knife in that it can handle so many different types of protocols and technologies, and I don't have to train my team on multiple tools to handle each of those. View full review »
Steve Chung says in a Performance Center review
Performance lead at a healthcare company with 1,001-5,000 employees
As a tool, it's something that we can use in all aspects of performance testing, whether it's services, whether it's web, whether it's customized APIs, like Citrix. It's the tool for performance testing, and it's definitely the industry leader that I've been using for years. It's a very powerful tool. Truthfully, I think performance is a fairly mature space now. There are not too many things popping up that we're saying, "You know, Performance Center doesn't do X, Y or Z." It's a pretty mature tool and we're happy with it. View full review »
