SmartBear ServiceV Pro Review

Helps debugging API client issues with closed-off APIs

How has it helped my organization?

Helps debugging API client issues with closed-off APIs (behind the VPN).

What is most valuable?

Ties-in with the rest of the SoapUI platform and its ability to record traffic and create a virtual endpoint.

What needs improvement?

Greater capacity to create Virtual APIs based on HAR files or wireshark recordings.

For how long have I used the solution?

Three months.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No, but we haven't ran it for very long.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

For very complex and load intensive virtualization, the heap size needed to be increased.

How are customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

10 out of 10. Very responsive.

Technical Support:

Eight out of 10. On par with VMware, when they had more North American support.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?
