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 anymore. Whenever we have to test lab scale applications, and in a scenario where we don't have to test every day, we don't have to build the machines and pay for it. Instead, we can get the infrastructure from on-demand from StormRunner, and its ability to run it anywhere just by opening it in browser is the best part. The evolution of StormRunner starting with supporting LoadRunner along with the open source technologies like JMeter and Selenium. Their unit testing tools are actually very advanced in the region of the product. That's why I would recommend anyone to use StormRunner, even though something is not supported now, eventually it's going to be supported by StormRunner. That's the kind of credibility that's needed for any customer when it comes to relying on a product or going for a new product. View full review »

The record and playback feature is the most valuable feature. It's all driven by the script, so it's a script-based tool where the background tracing starts. Java's background process does a lot of tracing. The process starts in the background. It sees what peaks of volumes the process can handle. It's easy to use because it's script based, record and playback. I play certain tests. I record those tests, see how they pass through the entire environment, and see how many breaks I get. Then we repeat that for multiple numbers. If the first time, I pumped in 1 million trades, and get 5% of the failures, then I try with 2 million trades and I see that there is a 7% failure. These scenarios are easy to do in the LoadRunner. LoadRunner has been the best tool for more than 20 years in the market. You can do endurance testing, you can do load testing. These are the different types of load testing. It lets you see how much volume you can benchmark in your entire environment, given the resources like CPU and RAM. The record and playback is the best feature. You need to use a console. You log in to your console and see the dashboard with how many trades failed and how many trades passed, what the peak loads endurance load were. View full review »

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 will be done remotely using their resources. View full review »

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. View full review »

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. View full review »
