When it comes to building high quality apps, ensuring that they can handle even the toughest loads is one of the most important steps in software testing. But despite its importance, companies often see load testing as too difficult, too expensive, and too distracting from the goal of simply shipping the app. For many companies, their first load test comes in the “real world,” in the hands of their devoted users. And for all too many of them, the results are disastrous.
Our customers have been asking us for more and more help with load testing, and earlier this year we started seeking a partner who could help us execute high volume load tests. When we met the team at BlazeMeter, we immediately knew we had made the right connection. When it comes to modern load testing, these guys get it. They’ve built an outstanding cloud platform to run load tests using JMeter, a hugely popular load testing tool, with the ability to quickly scale from a few thousand to hundreds of thousands of virtual users.
Today we’re pleased to announce a new partnership with BlazeMeter, and we think that by working together we will make it substantially easier for companies to load test their web and mobile apps quickly and affordably.
BlazeMeter has built their load testing technology on JMeter - an open source platform with thousands of man hours of active development – for companies like Nike, Adobe, MIT and others. By creating a cloud platform for JMeter scripts, BlazeMeter has made it easy to deliver load tests on any scale without their customers having to manage expensive infrastructure.
uTest brings to the table our team of performance experts to help create JMeter scripts and interpret the results. With our community of load testing professionals, we have some of the smartest JMeter experts in the world who know how to build testing scripts, execute them, and then interpret the results. Companies can work with us to have their web and mobile apps load tested using industry-leading tools, even if they have have no prior background in running a load test.
And because JMeter is an open platform, companies are not locked into an expensive tool with recurring licensing fees. Customers can reuse their JMeter scripts however they like, including on their own systems.
