Load Impact Brings Cloud-Based Performance Testing to IBM Cloud Marketplace

Load Impact joins a variety of leading SaaS applications, including Twilio, New Relic and MonoDB, in the IBM Cloud marketplace.

SAN FRANCISCO – April 29, 2014 – Load Impact today announced a partnership with IBM that brings the power of Load Impact's cloud-based performance testing service to the IBM Cloud marketplace. Starting today, IBM clients can execute large-scale performance tests - up to 1.2 million concurrent users - with just a few clicks and without any software to install or licenses to buy.

Load Impact enables web and mobile app developers to quickly and easily ensure the scalability and reliability of their platforms by making performance testing completely self-service and on-demand. All of Load Impact's testing features - including realistic user simulation, full mobile client and network emulation, simultaneous multi-geographic load generation and advanced scripting capabilities - are accessible through its intuitive user interface (UI) at loadimpact.com and available for trial prior to purchase.

The IBM Cloud marketplace offers clients access to more than 100 SaaS applications, IBM's Bluemix platform-as-a-service with its suite of composable services, the powerful SoftLayer infrastructure-as-a-service and IBM's rich intellectual capital and deep industry expertise. This single online destination with a suite of cloud services delivers a new buying experience for clients that enables business professionals to deploy new services faster; allows developers to build them with greater speed; and offers IT departments more creative, efficient and lower-cost ways to deliver these services.

"We no longer live in a world where upgrading one's server hardware or internet bandwidth is enough to stay competitive. The rising performance expectations of users and the complexity of mobile connectivity means app developers have to take a proactive approach to performance in order to stay ahead of the game. That means performance testing early and often throughout the development process and making sure that no line of code passes into production without meeting at least a minimum performance threshold." - said Ragnar Lönn, founder and CEO, Load Impact. "Thankfully, our partnership with IBM will make it easier for developers and testers to quickly run a load test and find performance bottlenecks before their customers do."
