Initially, I've been using it for small use cases, just to test scenarios of less than 1,000 users. I think generally it's been very good. My team has even deployed it for clients within banking. It's still a go-to tool; although, as far as SaaS goes, recently we have had more suggestions to go with Neosyde.

I am a managed service provider, a reseller, and a consultant. In other words, I am a total geek. I added a whole bunch of features and changes three or four years, but I don't know if they followed my recommendations; however, they did implement some changes that I suggested. There's an onsite version and there's a cloud version. We typically don't want an enterprise type version because the clients that we work with are fairly large. The last place we used this solution employed 150,000 people. We have clients that have as few as 10 employees, and other clients that have thousands of employees. I would say the mid-sized businesses that we work with are between 250 and 700 people. It's all Citrix. We do load balance. We do load testing for Citrix deployments to determine whether or not we're going to get what we expected. The ability to run long packages for extended periods of time, and actually mimic end users. That's really what we use it for. We use it for validation. When you put together a system that has two to three thousand people on it, you need to be able to test it. To do that, you need a product that allows you to cast two to three thousand users on a system.

The primary use case for clients is that they often have large application development teams and application development projects that they needed to scale. So, for instance, if they were developing a new banking website and they needed to check that the application that sits on that website was scalable from a few hundred concurrent users to many thousands of users, they could test the load response using LoadRunner. That is what LoadRunner does, it does the performance testing and measures load-bearing response.

We use LoadRunner for performance testing.

The primary use case of this solution is for testing and for systems that we deploy in AWS, Azure, on-premises using Cisco UCS, and HP Hyperconverged. We need to know how the desktops are going to load and run daily. As an example, when you build a Citrix desktop and not paying attention, you can make mistakes. The next day, when someone is trying to log in, it may be that they can't because the mistake is on the desktop. Rather than risk errors, we perform load testing on new desktops and new desktop builds. That way, we know if they are done correctly, or if they have an issue then we can rectify it before going into production.

Our primary use case for Performance Center is testing the performance of all of our applications.

Even if the protocol and API doesn't cover your need, you can always find a solution. That means you can always handle any situation with a piece of code, whatever the target application is.
