LoadRunner Cloud Review

Valuable features include the fact that you don't have to worry about the infrastructure setup.


What is most valuable?

  • The fact that you don't have to worry about the infrastructure setup.
  • The fact that 1000's of virtual users can log on to the cloud without having to set up.
  • Provides a solution for new or existing customers.
  • Alternative to LoadRunner, for new or existing clients with agile.

What needs improvement?

At the moment, its a bit early for us to tell - does everything we need it to. HP is looking to expand to see what exactly it can be used for.

For how long have I used the solution?

We did a trial since it was launched.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

No issues with deployment.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No issues with stability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We were only running a small set of numbers, but no issues.

How are customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

It's not something we've really had to worry about - we were able to crack it open and begin.

Technical Support:

The help files on the web are good and the video links/ guides are good.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We use LoadRunner extensively for Performance testing.

How was the initial setup?

Setup was straightforward.

What about the implementation team?

In-house implementation.

What was our ROI?

I can't calculate the ROI right now but I would assume a lot considering savings on infrastructure cost and license costs. It will still take some time to run a performance test but setup saves a lot of time.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluate a lot of testing tools. NeoLoad, LoadRunner, we prefer HP.

What other advice do I have?

If you're looking at an application that can be seen on the WAN and using agile approach, then its a tool that should be recommended and used.
