SUNNYVALE, Calif., Sept. 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Mu Dynamics, Inc. (www.mudynamics.com), the leader in validating and testing applications and application-aware networks, today announced the integration of Blitz into multiple platforms – making it easily accessible to virtually all developers in the tools they are already using. This integration seamlessly incorporates Blitz, Mu's unique, cloud-based load and performance testing solution, with major Platform as a Service (PaaS), Content Management System (CMS) and web security and performance offerings in use by app developers and website managers today. This integration enables developers to quickly, easily and affordably test the performance of cloud applications without leaving the workflow of their PaaS, CMS or web management applications. With this announcement, Blitz has now been integrated into the platforms of industry leaders such as Heroku, AppHarbor, Acquia and CloudFlare.

Mu Dynamics created Blitz specifically for the fast-paced application development market.  Blitz is now fully integrated into the PaaS providers most commonly used by application developers.

"Blitz integrates seamlessly into our offering, enabling our developer community to quickly and easily test the performance of their apps before going live. They can do this from within our platform and without the need for any prior testing expertise," said Rune Sorensen, CEO, AppHarbor. "This ensures the apps will be able to withstand heavy usage and also ensure the highest levels of performance. Even as they make changes, developers can easily quantify the impact on performance."

"Website owners choose CloudFlare because we make their sites faster, safer, and smarter: they care about web performance," said John Roberts, Platform lead at CloudFlare. "With Blitz's load and performance testing service integrated as a CloudFlare App, our developer customers can measure the baseline performance of their web applications with quantifiable metrics."

"As our customers build complex and high performance web applications with Drupal, they need to be able to integrate performance testing into the development and deployment workflow to ensure that any code changes do not impact end user performance," said Peter Guagenti, vice president of services at Acquia. "With Blitz, our customers can affordably run load tests in a matter of minutes, ensuring their sites can handle traffic spikes before they ever occur."
