Apica Unveils Load Testing Portal for Cloud, Mobile, and Enterprise Testing

PALO ALTO, Calif. --(Business Wire)--

Apica, a leading load testing and performance monitoring provider, has introduced ApicaLoadTest.com, a powerful new load testing portal that brings together the tools, premium load generation testing networks, and professional experts to initiate on-demand cloud, mobile, and enterprise load tests for up to 2 million concurrent users. The new SaaS (News - Alert) testing platform, powered by Apica ProxySniffer, enables developers and IT professionals to plan, execute, and analyze load tests of any size to measure exactly how many users an application can handle before response times degrade or systems crash.

The Apica LoadTest platform offers testing options with flexible pricing and licensing to meet every user's needs, from single projects to ongoing large-scale testing initiatives. Load tests can be conducted locally behind a firewall, from AWS data centers, or from Apica's premium testing network of over 50 worldwide virtual and physical locations.

Four testing options are available within the portal, including:

  • Internal testing, which utilizes Apica ProxySniffer to generate loads based on local resources of up to 100,000 virtual concurrent users per test server, with options to expand capacity as needed.
  • Pure cloud testing also utilizes Apica ProxySniffer to enable experienced testing professionals with cloud-based and public Internet sites to quickly scale loads up to 200,000 virtual concurrent users from nine AWS data centers. Cloud testing is available via a pay-as-you-go pricing model based on capacity.
  • Apica LoadTest Self-Service allows testing teams to create and store scripts in the repository to perform load tests and analyze results over time from Apica's premium testing network. Apica professional service experts are available on-demand for either hourly or project-based consultation to ensure successful load testing execution.
  • Apica LoadTest Full-Service is a fully-managed service that provides CIOs and business/IT managers running cloud-based and public Internet sites with access to expert script design, test execution, and interpreted results, with fixed pricing for up to 2 million virtual users.


"As applications become increasingly complex, the need for on-demand load testing is at an all-time high," said Sven Hammar, CEO of Apica. "We have created a flexible load testing portal to meet the needs of developers and businesses that want to test applications but don't have their own platform or network to do so. We are opening up access to our tools, services, and global network of test center locations so users can test their application performance from selected physical and cloud locations around the world. Accurately controlling and monitoring the effects of a load test over time leads to application performance improvements."

Apica LoadTest is part of the Apica WebExcellence Suite of managed services and SaaS tools for performance monitoring and testing. It is cloud-based so no hardware or software is needed to conduct the load tests. Test results are stored in the portal and can be easily accessed throughout the entire API. Through integration with AppDynamics' real-time application performance monitoring users are also able to drill down to the code level to better understand the factors that impact testing results and isolate problems before they can affect overall performance.

Apica ProxySniffer is available as a free download for 20 virtual-user load tests of up to 10 minutes per test. Apica is also offering one-week evaluations of its internal testing option for 5,000 virtual users and pure cloud testing option for 20,000 virtual users.
