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."

WebRTC services have already permeated corporate communications in the form of videoconferencing solutions. However, WebRTC has the potential of going beyond and catalyzing a new class of services providing more than calls with capabilities such as mass-scale real-time media broadcasting, enriched and augmented video, person-to-machine and machine-to-machine communications. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Luis Lopez, CEO of Kurento, introduced the technologies required for implementing these idea...
The WebRTC Summit New York, to be held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY, announces that its Call for Papers is now open. Topics include all aspects of improving IT delivery by eliminating waste through automated business models leveraging cloud technologies. WebRTC Summit is co-located with 20th International Cloud Expo and @ThingsExpo. WebRTC is the future of browser-to-browser communications, and continues to make inroads into the traditional, difficult, plug-in web co...
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and shared the must-have mindsets for removing complexity from the develop...
While not quite mainstream yet, WebRTC is starting to gain ground with Carriers, Enterprises and Independent Software Vendors (ISV’s) alike. WebRTC makes it easy for developers to add audio and video communications into their applications by using Web browsers as their platform. But like any market, every customer engagement has unique requirements, as well as constraints. And of course, one size does not fit all. In her session at WebRTC Summit, Dr. Natasha Tamaskar, Vice President, Head of C...
Who are you? How do you introduce yourself? Do you use a name, or do you greet a friend by the last four digits of his social security number? Assuming you don’t, why are we content to associate our identity with 10 random digits assigned by our phone company? Identity is an issue that affects everyone, but as individuals we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ben Klang, Founder & President of Mojo Lingo, discussed the impact of technology on identity. Sho...
DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...
With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...
WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...
Internet of @ThingsExpo, taking place June 6-8, 2017 at the Javits Center in New York City, New York, is co-located with the 20th International Cloud Expo and will feature technical sessions from a rock star conference faculty and the leading industry players in the world. @ThingsExpo New York Call for Papers is now open.
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
Big Data engines are powering a lot of service businesses right now. Data is collected from users from wearable technologies, web behaviors, purchase behavior as well as several arbitrary data points we’d never think of. The demand for faster and bigger engines to crunch and serve up the data to services is growing exponentially. You see a LOT of correlation between “Cloud” and “Big Data” but on Big Data and “Hybrid,” where hybrid hosting is the sanest approach to the Big Data Infrastructure pro...
Businesses are struggling to manage the information flow and interactions between all of these new devices and things jumping on their network, and the apps and IT systems they control. The data businesses gather is only helpful if they can do something with it. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Witeck, Principal Technology Strategist at Citrix, discussed how different the impact of IoT will be for large businesses, expanding how IoT will allow large organizations to make their legacy applica...
