DURHAM, N.C., April 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Website traffic continues to increase while expectations for web page load times are now under a second. To meet the demand for testing with very large numbers of users Web Performance, Inc. has released Load Tester PRO™ 5.0, load testing software which generates traffic of up to 1,000,000 virtual users on complex, dynamic websites under a new, affordable flat-rate pricing structure.
Load Tester PRO™ automatically scans through huge amounts of performance data and analyze a site's performance to find out how many users the site can handle, regardless of the number of users or number of web servers involved. To handle the special demands of large tests the new release has been optimized from the ground up. The accuracy of the simulated users is maintained using a proprietary load-generation balancing and monitoring algorithm specifically designed for the cloud, while the user interface has been optimized to monitor and analyze large numbers of web servers.
So, thanks to the cloud you can now have 1,000,000 virtual users pounding your website in about five minutes with no investment in infrastructure. Another benefit unique to Load Tester PRO™ is its low, flat rate price. "Current pricing models for load testing are based on how the web was 15 years ago. With the advent of the cloud the real cost of generating 100,000 users is about the same as generating 1,000, so you shouldn't pay 100 times as much," says Web Performance president Michael Czeiszperger. "Our pricing reflects the new reality so you don't need a calculator to figure out what your load testing will cost today or tomorrow."
Load Tester PRO integrates easily with existing technology on most platforms, including AJAX, Apache and httpd, PHP, Java and J2EE, ASP and .NET. Users can generate load from inside their own network or from the cloud using load-balanced computers that continually monitor the accuracy of up to 1,000,000 simulated users.
"For the past 13 years we have worked quietly and collaboratively behind the scenes to make sure critical websites work like they're supposed to." says Czeiszperger. "If you've gone online and signed up for cable, or donated to a large charity, or accessed a government website in the US, Canada or France you've probably experienced a site tuned by Load Tester PRO™. We make websites work."
Web Performance is staffed by technology experts who think it's fun to pound the crap out of a website. We provide both testing services and software, including Web Performance Load Tester PRO™. For more information, visit webperformance.com, or call 919-845-7601.
