Appvance Adds New Relic APM Testing To PerformanceCloud

Continuous Simulated User Load Gets To The Root Cause of App Performance Issues Faster

SAN JOSE, Calif., April 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Appvance Inc., a leader in app performance testing, announced the addition of Application Performance Management (APM) integration with New Relic in Appvance PerformanceCloud, its third generation cloud testing platform that combines functional, performance, stress, load tests and monitoring, with New Relic.

"Our customers have requested this new capability we call Proactive APM," said Kevin Surace, CEO at Appvance. "Before this, APM was most useful once an app launched, the app delivered a poor end-user experience, and was flagged by New Relic. Proactive APM gives business managers, engineers, and testers a way to anticipate the end-user experience while the app is under development, then compare simulated user performance to real user performance once the app launches. This allows for instant diagnoses when there are production issues, by comparing expected transaction times with potential issues. If you are already using New Relic, you'll want to add Appvance PerformanceCloud to your app development and testing environment."

Appvance PerformanceCloud (APC) is the first beginning-to-end test system which accurately drives 100% of the actual user interactions, even with complex HTML5 and AJAX client-side code. APC has had a monitoring capability to correlate resource – CPU, Network, Memory, and other aspects of performance – to app end-user experiences. Adding integration with New Relic helps surface and pinpoint app end-user performance issues and functional issues in Web apps, Ajax apps, Mobile (iOS/Android), and Oracle Forms apps more easily and more accurately.

The new features include:

  • Integrated New Relic Monitoring to App Server, DB Server, Load Balancer, Node.js Server
  • Quickly create Benchmarks to App Performance for DevOps and Engineers
  • Live Web-based Results, Drill Downs to Request/Response Level As The Tests Run
  • Analysis From Simulated Use Of Your App to CPU, Net, Memory, DB Query Analysis
  • Use New Relic Application Performance Management For Deeper Root Cause Analysis
  • 85 Reports from Results Repository for 
App Functional and Performance Analysis
  • Define Appvance PerformanceCloud Integration To Any New Relic Report
  • Select An App Transaction, see New Relic Report on Server, App, DB
  • Runs AWS Cloud, Private Grid datacenter, or Both
  • Compatible with Selenium, JMeter, Sahi, Appium, Java, PHP, Perl Tests
  • Data driven tests and analysis from live operational test data sources

From the latest Ajax JavaScript toolkits to legacy Oracle Forms, from video to mobile apps, APC drives dramatically higher productivity in SQA, and thus deeper analysis. APC runs in a public cloud or in a private cloud behind the firewall to fully support Agile workflows defined in popular test scripting languages such as Selenium, JMeter, Sahi, Appium, Java, PHP, Perl for all test methods, and includes Appvance's patent-pending uxAvatar technology, that allows even complex sites and apps to be tested without coding. APC is installation-less and runs fully within any browser, including IE, Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and Mobile Web browsers.

Adding public cloud resources to an existing application can be a daunting process. The tools that you currently use to manage the software and hardware outside the cloud aren’t always the best tools to efficiently grow into the cloud. All of the major configuration management tools have cloud orchestration plugins that can be leveraged, but there are also cloud-native tools that can dramatically improve the efficiency of managing your application lifecycle. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Alex Lovell-Troy, Director of Solutions Engineering at Pythian, presented a roadmap that can be leveraged by any organization to plan, analyze, evaluate, and execute on moving from configuration management tools to cloud orchestration tools. He also addressed the three major cloud vendors as well as some tools that will work with any cloud.

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure using the Kublr platform, and how Kubernetes objects, such as persistent volumes, ingress rules, and services, can be used to abstract from the infrastructure.
