BlazeMeter Announces Partnership With CloudBees

Simplified Load and Performance Testing Enters the Java Realm

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 11/14/12 -- BlazeMeter, provider of the Apache JMeter™-based load testing platform, today announced its partnership with CloudBees, the leading provider of Java Platform as a Service (PaaS), which provides a foundation for cloud development and deployment services.

BlazeMeter is now an add-on service available for use with the CloudBees Platform. CloudBees provides continuous integration (CI) development and deployment services within its platform. Now, users can implement JMeter-based cloud testing as part of their CI process. As a result of this partnership, Java developers will be able to test their websites or applications faster, more thoroughly and more simply than ever.

With BlazeMeter, CloudBees users can load test their website or applications and fine-tune them before deploying to production. They can use BlazeMeter to simulate realistic browser traffic that originates from the cloud, which enables them to rigorously test the load that their website or application can handle, locate and resolve bugs and retest as needed. Developers benefit from a simplified load testing process (Load Testing-as-a-Service), allowing the engagement of realistic cloud testing as part of the CI process.

"Partnering with CloudBees is the next logical step in BlazeMeter's expansion," said Alon Girmonsky, founder and CEO, BlazeMeter. "With our integration into the CloudBees Platform, the continuous development process can now include JMeter-based cloud testing without the user having to set up test environments. BlazeMeter provides a scalable JMeter-based testing environment out of the box, allowing for fully automated load testing that simplifies the entire testing process. Partnering with CloudBees gives BlazeMeter an important presence in the world of Java development. It increases our reach and reinforces our reputation as the default load-tester of choice for developers."

This new partnership immediately follows BlazeMeter's release of its Jenkins CI plugin for the open-source Jenkins Continuous Integration (CI) software that allows Jenkins developers the ability to launch comprehensive load tests in minutes, using next generation cloud testing tools.

"We are pleased to offer BlazeMeter load testing functionality along with the CloudBees Platform," said Andrew Lee, Vice President of business development, CloudBees. "A significant focus for CloudBees is to provide easy access to premier partner services for use with our platform. Ecosystem partners enable CloudBees customers to accelerate development of high quality Java applications, with the assurance of platform compatibility. With BlazeMeter services, customers now have access to a very robust performance testing solution for their applications running on the CloudBees Platform."

@ThingsExpo Stories
IoT is still a vague buzzword for many people. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Mike Kavis, Vice President & Principal Cloud Architect at Cloud Technology Partners, discussed the business value of IoT that goes far beyond the general public's perception that IoT is all about wearables and home consumer services. He also discussed how IoT is perceived by investors and how venture capitalist access this space. Other topics discussed were barriers to success, what is new, what is old, and what the future may hold. Mike Kavis is Vice President & Principal Cloud Architect at Cloud Technology Pa...

The Internet of Things (IoT) is rapidly in the process of breaking from its heretofore relatively obscure enterprise applications (such as plant floor control and supply chain management) and going mainstream into the consumer space. More and more creative folks are interconnecting everyday products such as household items, mobile devices, appliances and cars, and unleashing new and imaginative scenarios. We are seeing a lot of excitement around applications in home automation, personal fitness, and in-car entertainment and this excitement will bleed into other areas. On the commercial side, m...
Almost everyone sees the potential of Internet of Things but how can businesses truly unlock that potential. The key will be in the ability to discover business insight in the midst of an ocean of Big Data generated from billions of embedded devices via Systems of Discover. Businesses will also need to ensure that they can sustain that insight by leveraging the cloud for global reach, scale and elasticity.

Public Utilities throughout the world, providing electricity, natural gas and water, are pursuing SmartGrid initiatives that represent one of the more mature examples of SAE. We have s...
Since 2008 and for the first time in history, more than half of humans live in urban areas, urging cities to become “smart.” Today, cities can leverage the wide availability of smartphones combined with new technologies such as Beacons or NFC to connect their urban furniture and environment to create citizen-first services that improve transportation, way-finding and information delivery. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Laetitia Gazel-Anthoine, CEO of Connecthings, will focus on successful use cases.
The Internet of Things will greatly expand the opportunities for data collection and new business models driven off of that data. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of MetraTech, discussed how for this to be effective you not only need to have infrastructure and operational models capable of utilizing this new phenomenon, but increasingly service providers will need to convince a skeptical public to participate. Get ready to show them the money!
