apicxaloadtest_02Apica has launched a new SaaS-based load testing portal to meet the needs of developers and businesses that want to test applications but don’t have their own platforms or networks to do so. ApicaLoadTest.com can initiate on-demand cloud, mobile, and enterprise load tests for up to two million concurrent users.

The goal of ApicaLoadTest.com is to provide dev/test professionals more accurate control and monitoring of load testing to provide better application performance, according to Apica CEO Sven Hammar. ApicaLoadTest.com’s SaaS approach to testing allows devsto better plan, execute, and analyze any size load tests, as well as to accurately measure exactly how many users an app can handle systems slow down or totally crash, he added. 

“As applications become increasingly complex, the need for on-demand load testing is at an all-time high,” Hammar said in a statement. “We are opening up access to our tools, services, and global network of test center locations so users can test their application performance from selected physical and cloud locations around the world.”

The ApicaLoadTest.com SaaS offering offers four testing options:

Internal testing. This option uses Apica ProxySniffer to develop loads based on local resources of up to 100,000 virtual concurrent users per test server – capacity can be increase as necessary.

 

Pure cloud testing. This option uses Apica ProxySniffer to let testing pros with cloud-based and public Internet sites quickly scale loads up to 200,000 virtual concurrent users from nine AWS data centers. Users can pay for the cloud testing on a pay-as-you-go pricing model based on capacity.

 

Apica LoadTest Self-Service. This testing option lets testing teams create and store scripts in the repository so they can perform load tests and evaluate results over time from Apica’s testing network.

 

Apica LoadTest Full-Service. This service gives CIOs and business/IT managers running cloud-based and public Internet sites access to

expert script design, test execution, and interpreted results.

Because Apica LoadTest runs in the cloud, there’s no need for any hardware of software to conduct the load tests  Users can access the test results, which are stored in the portal, throughout the entire API, according to officials.

Apica LoadTest.com users can conduct load tests locally behind a firewall, from AWS (Amazon Web Services) data centers, or from Apica’s testing network, which consists of more than 50 virtual and physical locations worldwide.

 

Apica LoadTest.com is part of the Apica WebExcellence Suite of managed services and SaaS tools for performance monitoring and testing.
