Cloudy days ahead for Performance Testing

Deploying optimized solutions which provide response times exceeding customer expectations requires the development team to validate application performance and tune the environment as part of their development process embedding best practices. However, performance testing takes time - procuring and provisioning pre-production load generating environments to validate the stability and scalability of applications and services costs money and can contribute to project delays.
CloudOne, an IBM Business Partner, has recently announced a new offering where development organizations can rent IBM Rational software licenses and load generating environments built using IBM Rational Performance Tester technology. This innovative solution enables organizations to execute performance on demand tests or increase their current performance testing capabilities for an hour, a day, a week, or a month. CloudOne staff and automated processes can accelerate the availability of private Cloud load generating environments, in a fraction of the usual deployment time offering 10 mbps of bandwidth with the ability to request more as required.
Organizations wanting to run performance tests of higher loads or test new protocols can lease the necessary software licenses for an hour, week or month simply by contacting a CloudOne representative. Using leased load generating environments and software licenses in this innovative manner offers a cost effective solution for organizations wanting to temporarily increase their performance testing capabilities or simply performance test their applications without having to maintain an on-premise dedicated performance testing environments.
