LoadRunner Cloud Review

I have been able to run several tests from outside the corporate LAN which in the past used to be an infrastructure nightmare.


What is most valuable?

  • Ability to get started on the fly
  • Reusability of existing HTTP/HTML scripts

How has it helped my organization?

I have been able to run several tests from outside the corporate LAN, which in the past used to be an infrastructure nightmare as it required opening up ports, disabling firewalls, etc.

What needs improvement?

It needs the ability to execute other protocols, especially the TruClient for Firefox without having to convert them.

For how long have I used the solution?

We've used it for over a year.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

There have been no issues with the deployment.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We have had no stability issues.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It's scaled to our needs.

How are customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

Customer Service is immaculate.

Technical Support:

Tech Support is immaculate.

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

There was no solution in place previously.

How was the initial setup?

There was no set-up required.

What about the implementation team?

It's done in-house, but there's no actual implementation needed.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

There pricing and licensing options are very aggressive, but the holiday discount brought down the price further.

What other advice do I have?

I think that StormRunner Load is the way forward and if HPE manages to support all protocols currently supported by LoadRunner/Performance Center eventually in StormRunner, it would be a massive game changer.

Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Is the testing can be done on real devices and if so can we get device side metrics too?

How can we use StormRunner for company's internal network applications, which can't be accessed by outside users?
