BlazeMeter Named a 2013 Emerging Vendor by CRN

BlazeMeter, provider of the Apache JMeter™ compatible load testing platform for developers, today announced it has been named a 2013 Emerging Technology vendor by UBM Tech Channel’s CRN Magazine. The annual list highlights hot tech startups making an impact on the channel and an impression on the tech industry as a whole. These up-and-coming technology vendors have recently introduced a new product or technology that is not only innovative, but generates the high margins solution providers required in today’s competitive marketplace. Like other top emerging vendors on CRN’s list, BlazeMeter is recognized for being both an innovative cloud service provider, and for generating a comprehensive, cross-platform load testing solution required in today's competitive marketplace.

 

BlazeMeter’s enterprise performance and load testing platform helps developers find and fix bottlenecks on websites, mobile sites and apps and enables devops to perform real-world capacity planning. BlazeMeter’s platform simulates browser traffic that originates from the public cloud or from inside your own firewall and enables developers to better assess the realistic load capacity that their websites, mobile sites or applications can handle.

 

During the load, real time KPIs present themselves on the report dashboard, allowing users to quickly assess system performance and run numerous iterations, allowing users to locate bugs and bottlenecks, fix and re-test time and time again.

 

During a load test, a dedicated cluster of load engines is launched from any of BlazeMeter’s 11 global public cloud locations or from behind the firewall using BlazeMeter’s on-premise load agents. During the load, real time KPIs present themselves on the report dashboard, allowing users to quickly assess system performance and run numerous iterations, allowing users to locate bugs and bottlenecks, fix and re-test time and time again.

 

“Any technology vendor can claim to offer innovative products and groundbreaking technology, but only a select group can truly impact the marketplace with their offerings,” said Robert Faletra, CEO, UBM Tech Channel. “The companies named to the 2013 Emerging Vendor list offer solutions that deliver as promised while creating the high margins that solution providers demand. We congratulate all the vendors for their commitment to delivering technological innovations that map to the needs of the dynamic channel market.”
