Appvance, Inc. Key Developments

Appvance, Inc. Announces the Release of Appvance PerformanceCloud 2

Appvance, Inc. announced the release of Appvance PerformanceCloud 2 (APC2), the next generation of its groundbreaking, testing platform. APC2 now has the broader and deeper testing capability of any product available and is the only platform on the market now to offer true rapid beginning-to-end performance testing. Most test tools are either cumbersome, bloated with archaic features or lack the ability to truly test at a level beneficial for present complex apps and websites. APC2 combines advanced features with ease of use, allowing test teams to integrate APC2 easily into the current performance improvement and load testing processes. Its advanced feature set allows for test teams to develop complex and comprehensive testing scenarios, plus repurpose functional tests to data-driven performance tests all with detailed simulated user controls previously unattainable anywhere. And test scripting with APC2 is up to 20x faster than other tools. The deep and rich feature set includes unparalleled and detailed control of simulated users to provide the most realistic and comprehensive test scenarios, plus maintaining compatibility with industry standard script types such as JMeter, Selenium and Jython, which run seamlessly in APC2 and take advantage of all features. The latest release also provides incomparable support for cloud and agile development along with combining load and performance testing with the continuous integration process. APC2 will arm serious testers with a real-time analytics dashboard that helps quickly isolate and eradicate bottlenecks and problems while tests are running. Through APC2's Live Active Virtual Users real-time analytics dashboard, Appvance helps test teams isolate issues as they happen, down to the millisecond. With APC2, testers also get complete stack traces, along with outputs and errors for active virtual users, so they can easily investigate and intricately assess error log details of active transactions. APC2 gives testers the ability to simulate millions of users at the UX level on-demand, providing real transaction times right to the eyeball (including all client-side code), and run performance tests that mimic real-world user behavior, all while providing a secure and scalable product that can run in the cloud as well as behind a customers firewall. APC2 has added an enormous breadth of features to meet the ever-growing needs and requirements of testing teams from large and most demanding enterprise customers, including: advanced analytics and reporting: Helping testers identify application performance issues faster with the least amount of effort, including: honing in on a specific time period, creating report templates, viewing response times of each element, location based reports, test error logging of full page error results, and increased monitoring of database and application server performance. · Enhanced cloud support: Giving testers a wider array of Amazon Web Services instances for load generation, while offering new capabilities for IBM SoftLayer cloud. Autonomous Agile stories: Agile stories can run autonomously each time code is checked into the continuous integration platform, offering a more comprehensive REST API library. Mobile and network simulation: Testers can gauge response times over simulated 3G, 4G, LTE or Wi-Fi network bandwidths (WAN Emulation). Java support: APC2 comes equipped with Appvance Java Technology (AJT), a proprietary technology that allows deeper direct testing of java-based applications including AWT, SWT, and Swing apps. Additional features include: Support for up to 1,000 browsers per generator node; iteration based testing; APC2 Designer now has recordable think times; supports IP spoofing at the user level for all script types; full REST API to all features; centralized management of resources; includes action APIs. Advanced control and definitions include: Ability to comment out steps, define completion criteria, cloud clusters and regions, define ramp times, set interval times and set sleep time/iteration pacing, test case offsets, and to set global think times, manage cache and cookies across all browsers during test, and to specify time-out conditions. Designed to meet the rigorous demands of global companies and enterprises, APC2 addresses the needs of performance testers looking to pinpoint issues that could cost companies customers, revenue and brand loyalty. For serious testers of large-scale, enterprise-caliber apps and websites, APC2 allows them to create test scenarios in hours, instead of days or weeks, enabling performance issues to be located quickly with little or no coding necessary.

Appvance, Inc. Adds Akamai Edge Cache Testing to PerformanceCloud

Appvance Inc. announced the addition of Akamai Edge Cache Testing in Appvance PerformanceCloud (APC), that combines functional, performance, stress, load tests and monitoring, with Akamai. Large enterprises depend on Appvance to analyze Akamai Edge Cache performance by directing virtual (simulated) user traffic equally to up to dozens of Akamai regions concurrently. Appvance uses an advanced allotment technology to access the Akamai load balancing of the regions, including North America, Europe, and Asia. The new features include: automatic checking of accuracy and consistency in Akamai configurations, the major obstacle to app performance and scalability. Compares Akamai Cache performance to app origin server performance, Logs Akamai Edge Cache HTTP header responses to Appvance results repository: Customer name, region identifier, and cache hit/miss. Integrated Monitoring to App Servers, DB Servers, Load Balancers, Node.js Servers. Quickly create Akamai Edge Cache Benchmarks to App Performance for DevOps and Engineers. Live Web-based Results, Drill Downs to Request/Response Level As The Tests Run, application Performance Management For Deeper Root Cause Analysis, 85 reports from results repository for app functional and performance analysis, runs in Amazon, IBM SoftLayer, Rackspace, Savvis (CenturyLink), corporate private grid (behind your firewall), or both, compatible with Selenium, JMeter, Sahi, Appium, Java, PHP, Perl Tests, data driven tests and analysis from live operational test data sources across Akamai network. From the latest Ajax JavaScript toolkits to legacy Oracle Forms, from video to mobile apps, APC drives substantially higher productivity in SQA, and thus deeper analysis. APC runs in a public cloud or in a private cloud behind the firewall to fully support Agile workflows defined in popular test scripting languages such as Selenium, JMeter, Sahi, Java, PHP, Perl for all test methods, and includes Appvance's patent-pending uxAvatar technology, that allows even complex sites and apps end-user experience to be tested without coding. APC is installation-less and runs fully within any browser, including IE, Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and Mobile Web browsers.

Appvance, Inc. Adds JMeter Testing to PerformanceCloud(TM)

Appvance Inc. announced the addition of JMeter compatibility in Appvance PerformanceCloud, its next generation cloud testing platform that combines functional, performance, stress, load tests and APM. JMeter is widely used by individual software performance engineers and testers. PerformanceCloud provides large organizations with a standard way to roll-out and maintain JMeter tests through standard grid and cloud test server infrastructure, test management services, and Agile processes. Appvance PerformanceCloud (APC) is the first beginning-to-end test system which accurately drives 100% of the actual user interactions, even with complex HTML5 and AJAX client-side code. Apache JMeter is an Apache project to test Web applications at the HTTP protocol level.
