PHILADELPHIA--(network virtualization and application performance engineering, today announced that HP can now directly sell Shunra Network Virtualization to extend HP Performance Center and HP LoadRunner performance testing solutions for mobile applications. The collaboration will help organizations test apps with real-world network conditions by addressing the challenge of ensuring reliable mobile performance regardless of the network type.)--Shunra Software, the recognized authority in
“Businesses that succeed in managing and optimizing network performance in these changing times will have the best combination of network and application visibility and control in their management infrastructure”
“Businesses that succeed in managing and optimizing network performance in these changing times will have the best combination of network and application visibility and control in their management infrastructure,” said Jim Rapoza, senior research analyst at Aberdeen Group.
Shunra Network Virtualization significantly enhances test accuracy and reliability by incorporating real-world network conditions into the load and performance test environment. With Shunra’s technology, developers, test engineers, and quality assurance (QA) teams can:
- Reduce or eliminate the need to rely on remote load generators by enabling each load generator in a test environment to emulate a different network location’s transaction response time;
- Aggregate test results into a single database for ease and completeness of location-specific performance analysis;
- Extend testing scripts with a single click; and
- Automate reporting and analysis for performance engineers, line of business owners, and other business constituents.
“Working together with HP, we enable organizations to emulate real-world network conditions to achieve more precise and reliable mobile performance testing, resulting in higher performing mobile apps and improved end-user satisfaction,” said Gary Jackson, Shunra CEO. “According to a recent survey, the combination of both companies’ technologies has helped reduce the occurrence of performance issues for joint customers by an average of 25%, resulting in an average return on investment of less than 90 days.”
Shunra Network Virtualization for HP Software includes:
- Shunra NetworkCatcher for automatically gathering real-world network conditions and collecting interval statistics such as bi-directional bandwidth, latency, jitter, and packet loss;
- Access to the Shunra Global Library of mobile and broadband conditions, a regularly updated library of average, best-case, and worst-case network conditions from thousands of cities worldwide;
- Shunra Analytics for deep-dive test analysis, including location-specific performance information, automatic identification of poorly performing business transactions, and root cause performance issue information; and
- Shunra’s proprietary performance scorecard which automatically grades application performance and provides optimization suggestions that have been shown to improve performance by over 40%.
