BLAZEMETER RELEASES THE ‘HOLY GRAIL’ OF CLOUD TESTING FOR
OPEN SOURCE DRUPAL
New Drupal Module for Load and Performance Testing
Tel-Aviv,Israel. July 16, 2012 --BlazeMeter, provider of the Apache JMeter™ based load testing cloud, today announced the release of its module for the open-source Drupal software. For the first time ever, Drupal developers can now launch high volume load tests and optimize Drupal websites in minutes, using next generation cloud testing tools.
“Until now load and performance testing was time consuming, expensive, and required expertise in performance. BlazeMeter now steps in to do all the legwork, allowing developers to focus on their web applications.”, said Alon Girmonsky, Founder & CEO of BlazeMeter. “The BlazeMeter module, having an insight into the specific Drupal installation, automatically creates the test script and builds a dedicated testing environment in the cloud, ready to run on-demand“.
The BlazeMeter module supports Drupal 6 and 7 and will support Drupal 8 upon its release. The BlazeMeter module will create a load script that will simulate both anonymous users and authenticated users visiting the Drupal website. During a load test, a dedicated cluster of load engines is launched from a preconfigured geographic location. These servers generate traffic according to a load script generated by the BlazeMeter module according to the parameters set by the user. During the load, real time measurements of KPIs present themselves on the report dashboard, where users can easily evaluate system performance and run numerous iterations, allowing users to locate bugs and bottlenecks, fix and re-test time and time again.
Signup to BlazeMeter is free and no credit card is required. A lifetime free tier enables users to run limited size tests free of charge.
BlazeMeter is a self-service, load and performance testing cloud, 100% compatible with open source Apache JMeter™, the popular performance testing framework. An optimal solution for developers and Quality Assurance (QA) professionals, BlazeMeter provides an enterprise grade, out-of-the-box JMeter environment with unlimited load testing capacity, comprehensive, interactive real-time reporting and sophisticated result analysis and recommendations.
