"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(TM) (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.

"Storpool does only block-level storage so we do one thing extremely well. The growth in data is what drives the move to software-defined technologies in general and software-defined storage," explained Boyan Ivanov, CEO and co-founder at StorPool, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 16th Cloud Expo, held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City.
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, which can process our conversational commands and orchestrate the outcomes we request across our personal and professional realm of connected devices.
While some developers care passionately about how data centers and clouds are architected, for most, it is only the end result that matters. To the majority of companies, technology exists to solve a business problem, and only delivers value when it is solving that problem. 2017 brings the mainstream adoption of containers for production workloads. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben McCormack, VP of Operations at Evernote, discussed how data centers of the future will be managed, how the public cloud best suits your organization, and what the future holds for operations and infrastructure engineers in a post-container world. Is a serverless world inevitable?
ChatOps is an emerging topic that has led to the wide availability of integrations between group chat and various other tools/platforms. Currently, HipChat is an extremely powerful collaboration platform due to the various ChatOps integrations that are available. However, DevOps automation can involve orchestration and complex workflows. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Himanshu Chhetri, CTO at Addteq, will cover practical examples and use cases such as self-provisioning infrastructure/applications, self-remediation workflows, integrating monitoring and complimenting integrations between Atlassian tools and other top tools in the industry.
As DevOps methodologies expand their reach across the enterprise, organizations face the daunting challenge of adapting related cloud strategies to ensure optimal alignment, from managing complexity to ensuring proper governance. How can culture, automation, legacy apps and even budget be reexamined to enable this ongoing shift within the modern software factory? In her Day 2 Keynote at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Aruna Ravichandran, VP, DevOps Solutions Marketing, CA Technologies, was joined by a panel of industry experts and real-world practitioners who shared their insight into an emerging set of best practices that lie at the heart of today's digital transformation.
