Micro Focus LoadRunner Cloud Review

This software solution has allowed us to run larger, high concurrency performance testing cycles in a very repetitive manner.

What is most valuable?

Flexibility and speed to provision and start large (high concurrency) performance testing cycles.

How has it helped my organization?

This software solution has allowed us to run larger, high concurrency performance testing cycles in a very repetitive manner…a requirement for validating our application solutions and supporting infrastructure for customer facing web apps.

What needs improvement?

Out of the box reporting could be improved.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using the solution for 9 months.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

Some issues with UI but HP did provide high levels of support and the issue(s) were quickly fixed (within 3 days of initial product usage).

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No issues with stability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

No issues with scalability.

How are customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

Customer service was an 8/10.

Technical Support:

Technical support 9/10.

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

Utilized a different HP toolset (ALM/PC) for performance testing. SRL provided a better solution from a pricing and scaling perspective.

How was the initial setup?

Initial setup was straightforward…cloud based solution with a simple, flexible UI.

What about the implementation team?

Vendor team…expertise (10).

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Looked briefly at Neotys…actively doing a POC of CloudTest for comparison purposes.

What other advice do I have?

You need to effectively plan anticipated usage of the toolset. This will enable you to purchase the appropriate amount of Vusers hours for your contractual period (in our case this was 12 months).
