What is most valuable?

StormRunner itself is a pretty good hybrid product of Performance Center. Keeping up with DevOps, thus the best feature of StormRunner is that we don't have to build and maintain infrastructure… more »

How has it helped my organization?

The best benefit would be budget. It's a really inexpensive if you are testing your application every spring or every month. Even for less frequent applications that you have to test regularly. You… more »

What needs improvement?

More insight into test results and allowances. It might be a tailor-made requirement for me, but I would like to download them offline and do my own customizations on the reports. Right now, we have… more »

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

I always thought it would be good to have something like this from HPE because we rely a lot on HPE. Then, StormRunner was released and I knew where exactly it was going and what's it would be for us.

What other advice do I have?

I like that StormRunner incorporates the idea of accepting and adapting all open sources. It is my understanding that they are planning to continue accepting, supporting, and adapting all open… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

The other product we considered was BlazeMeter. We eventually chose StormRunner. I think only those two are pretty much in the market - nothing else.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is that we do not have to accommodate the load-testing infrastructure in our own data center. Normally for load testing, you have to have your own hardware and tools on-premises. With LoadRunner Cloud, the testing… more »

What needs improvement?

There are three modules in the system that are different products packaged into one, and they can sometimes be difficult to figure out, so they should be better integrated with each other. The current support model is something that can be… more »

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

There is no monthly or yearly cost but rather, the fees are based on the amount of traffic that you use. It is difficult to predict the costs until after you have begun using it.

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

We also use HP ALM for functional testing.

What other advice do I have?

My advice for anybody who is implementing LoadRunner Cloud is to make sure that when you buy the package, it is comprehensive. All of the modules should be there, including the support package. Otherwise, it will be hard to use. In summary… more »

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is having load generators in countries where we don’t have access to them.

How has it helped my organization?

We can determine response times for our external applications, from most places around the world, for a small fee.

What needs improvement?

An area for improvement is analytics on why response times are slow from certain countries. Slowness can be caused by the laptop, the connection, the VPN, the internal network, the country's internet, etc.

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

The pricing is very reasonable and the licensing is straightforward. You decide on the number of virtual users you will need to support multiple runs or for a year and purchase that quality of virtual-user hours. We chose to procure this… more »

What other advice do I have?

I rate this solution a ten out of ten. It addresses a need in performance testing tools and is easy to purchase and use.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is that you can create an infrastructure on-demand and do performance testing with it. There is no need to create physical infrastructure. Using this solution does not require the use of a load generator.

How has it helped my organization?

LoadRunner Cloud allows us to do performance testing without having to create our own physical infrastructure and set up a load generator. Normally, these steps would be required.

What needs improvement?

Improvements to the reporting would be good. Technical support can be improved.

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

I have used some open-source tools and LoadRunner Cloud is more straightforward to use.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

What is most valuable?

The usability and ability to integrate with other solutions is quite good. When I use it in on Azure, then Red Hat is the most likely solution I use. When I use AWS, then I tend to use Lambda functions. In either case, it works well and you can use it either way. The features on offer do everything we need them to.

What needs improvement?

I don't know of any features that should be added. The solution isn't lacking anything at this point. We're happy with what is on offer.

What other advice do I have?

We're a customer. We don't have any business partnerships with the company. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten overall. The solution has been quite good and integrates well with other products. It has all of the features we need and isn't really lacking anything that we've noticed.
