"Companies using Shunra for HP LoadRunner and Shunra for HP Performance Center over the past year have given it rave reviews for increased accuracy in predicting how their applications will behave for end users in remote locations," said Shunra CEO Gary Jackson. "We have surveyed those customers and found they are now far more confident in deploying the newest network applications, with the result that they are load testing more applications and migrating from HP LoadRunner to HP Performance Center. We are pleased to be able to bring the extraordinary value of Shunra's services to the full HP Software ecosystem."

The platform of programs includes:

  • A new performance engineering service offering called Rapid Performance Assessment™  (RPA), which engages Shunra's engineers to evaluate a customer's application performance and deliver business-critical results within one to five days;

  • The new Shunra Certified Partner Program, which offers in-person certification training on performance engineering best practices and provides access to Shunra solutions at compelling price points;

  • The availability of Shunra for HP LoadRunner in the Cloud (in support of the HP/Amazon Cloud Alliance) – access performance testing software on-demand using a flexible, affordable, hourly usage model;

  • The availability of Shunra for HP Performance Center within HP's SaaS (Software as a Service) offering, a "pay as you go" subscription service.

"The combination of Shunra's 30-day free trial and the Rapid Performance Assessment makes it easy for our joint customers to significantly increase confidence in their application performance with a minimal initial investment," said Jackson.

"To guarantee 100% customer satisfaction, ING DIRECT's network dependent applications have to perform optimally – all the time.
