Impetus Technologies announced the release of SandStorm CE (SandStorm CloudEdition), a cloud-enabled version of its performance testing tool. SandStorm CE helps in saving the license and hardware provisioning costs, as well as offers affordable performance testing, with a ‘pay-as-you-go’ model.
With the release of SandStorm CE, Impetus provides its customers, enterprises, start-ups and ISVs an easy provisioning to load test their software at hugely reduced costs. It also reduces the customers’ CAPEX by automatically provisioning a cluster of servers and machines on the cloud, as and when needed. This helps customers test their applications against a concurrency of 50 – 200,000 users, with the same ease.
SandStorm CE helps test the performance of applications hosted in customers’ DMZ, datacenter or the cloud, seamlessly. The solution offers a ‘ready to use environment,’ and provides realistic test conditions across the application’s entire delivery chain from different parts of the globe.
SandStorm quickly identifies application bottlenecks and helps predict its reliability, scalability and performance issues. SandStorm is the only tool to provide multi-protocol support in a single package with easy parameterization of FLEX, AJAX, Silverlight and Applet based applications. Its integrated resource monitoring and intuitive real time status reporting enables high-end analytics and extract capabilities.
It helps reduce the performance engineering costs by at least 30%, vis-à-vis other popular load testing tools. Impetus offers comprehensive services around performance engineering, including performance testing and sizing, system diagnostics, performance tuning and optimization and capacity planning, among others.
