BlazeMeter Offers Free Load Testing for Startups

BlazeMeter, provider of the JMeter-based load testing cloud, today launched its new support program for startups that offers a free, six-month package of its open source compatible load testing cloud services to qualifying startups. Now, startups can ensure their Web pages and mobile applications will hold up under high demand and perform as expected, delivering a seamless user experience when brought to production. The new program provides startups with 20 free performance tests per month for up to 1,000 users per two-load servers, and two weeks of data retention – a savings of more than $2,000 a year.

For many burgeoning startups, provisioning dozens of their own test servers and managing the distribution of large-scale load tests can present significant cost and agility barriers. BlazeMeter’s cloud-based testing solution, however, solves these problems for startups and maximizes the speed at which development teams can gather valuable load testing metrics by offering the best options for scalability, cost savings and geographic reach. The BlazeMeter cloud, which is 100 percent compatible with Apache JMeter, also allows developers and operations teams to select which global locations they want to review the load and response times of their applications for without having to stand up a data center in each location.

“We want to lend a hand to our fellow startups with this package, which will allow them to run sophisticated, large-scale performance and load tests quickly, easily and affordably,” said Alon Girmonsky, founder and CEO, BlazeMeter. “Traditional load testing solutions can be complex and time consuming, especially for smaller-scale startups that have limited infrastructure, bandwidth and financial resources. Our solution helps these companies be as agile as they can be, get more iterations in per day and achieve seamless capacity planning in minutes. Faster testing means they can roll out new products and updates more quickly, and with the absolute confidence that it will scale to meet demand and perform under the most strenuous circumstances.”
