It's fast, easy to use, has a user-friendly UI, and you can split users.Keeping up with DevOps, thus the best feature of StormRunner is that we don't have to build and maintain infrastructure anymore.This solution is SaaS based so we can utilize cloud technology, which is less time consuming and saves a lot of of money.The most valuable feature is the ability to configure browser settings for different operating systems and on different versions without the need to install every single version on each machine and to manage them.

Cons
It is tough to maintain from the infrastructure side.New features have been added in latest version and need to be improved with the DevOps integration.We are expecting more flexible to use Jenkins in continuous integration going forward.On the newer versions, I think the bleeding edge is still being worked on.I think better or more integration with some of the monitoring tools that we're considering.I think better support for cloud-based load generators would help. For example, integrate with Amazon AWS so you can quickly spin up a load generator in the cloud, use it, spin it down.Canned reports are always a challenge and a question with customers because customers want to see sexy reports.For such an experienced team as mine, who have been with the product for over ten years, sometimes working with technical support is not that easy.

It doesn't provide custom reports. You can only use the default reports which contain irrelevant data or is missing data that we need.There is a steep learning curve for the product, too.Sometimes, you are utilizing one of the low generators, then all of a sudden if you discontinue from one project, it actually deletes the entire low generator.I'd like to see more ability to dive more deeply into the configuration.

Pricing and Cost Advice
It is a bit expensive when compared with other tools.ROI is 200%.It does everything you could hope for in a performance testing solution. It's not cheap.For Performance Center, you have to add additional load generators, and then you can do more. I think it is a matter of the price, in terms of how many machines you can buy.
