BlazeMeter Announces Partnership With New Relic

(Marketwire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 02/07/13 -- BlazeMeter, provider of the Apache JMeter™ compatible load testing platform for developers, today announced its partnership with New Relic, a leader in application performance management (APM) based in San Francisco, California. The combined solution provides developers a single dashboard that overlays both BlazeMeter's load testing data and New Relic's end user performance data, enabling users to test how much traffic their application can handle.

BlazeMeter's load testing platform enables developers to proactively fix performance issues related to loads before they occur and cause a degraded user experience. BlazeMeter generates accurate and highly realistic load that quickly surfaces any performance related problem in BlazeMeter's self-service and secure load testing cloud. By injecting synthetic loads up to hundreds of thousands of simulated browser users through the veins of the application, performance related problems can be diagnosed in a matter of minutes and on demand.

"The integration between BlazeMeter and New Relic allows for side-by-side analysis of simulated load performance and application performance related issues. Fixing bottlenecks and re-testing becomes a seamless part of development," said Alon Girmonsky, Founder and CEO, BlazeMeter. "Our best of breed combination between BlazeMeter's load testing platform and New Relic's application performance monitoring is an ideal solution for the agile continuous development life-cycle." Through the partnership, all BlazeMeter customers receive New Relic Standard free of charge and BlazeMeter's Load Testing Cloud is available to all New Relic customers. BlazeMeter customers can start using New Relic today and New Relic customers can sign up immediately.

"By partnering with BlazeMeter, we are bringing our leading solutions together in a way that makes it easier than ever to identify and fix application performance issues in test environments," said Bill Lapcevic, New Relic's vice-president of business development. "New Relic data and analysis reveals what is happening inside the app environment through end-user performance and error analysis and overlaying it on BlazeMeter load bearing results, all in a single dashboard. Now users can analyze how much traffic their app can really handle." Getting started with BlazeMeter is simple. Read: How to Use BlazeMeter with New Relic to learn more.
