Performance Testing

Deliver reliable applications which meet performance expectations.
Performance Testing

Validate for maximum application performance

Many businesses depend on mission critical software applications, whether to drive internal execution, external customer engagement, or both. In all cases, the ability for those applications to handle demand and maintain robust performance is paramount to your business’s success.

We provide a variety of refined and highly cost-effective performance and load testing solutions. These enable IT and business stakeholders to test mission critical applications to ensure they’re able to handle peak loads and perform robustly for all users regardless of device, network, or location.

Micro Focus' Performance Testing Solutions

What is performance testing?

Definition

Performance testing is carried out to determine how responsive and stable a system’s performance is, under a particular workload.

What sets us apart from other performance testing solutions?

Effective performance testing requires workloads that replicate real user behavior. Micro Focus performance testing solutions enable you to accurately mimic real user behavior over different devices, networks, and locations.

Providing these solutions as a cloud based performance testing service gives you the ability to cost effectively ensure that mission critical applications are able to handle peak loads and perform as expected for all users, on any device, anywhere in the world.

Fine-tune your business applications

Fine-tune your business applications

Performance testing ensures efficient and responsive internal business applications, which means you can make the best use of your infrastructure resources.

Silk Performer CloudBurst

Silk Performer CloudBurst supports tunnelling of load over VPN, so you can provide the flexible workflows you need in order to fine-tune and scale application resources.

Offer your customers the best experience

Offer your customers the best experience

High application performance is crucial. Diverse access profiles which involve user behavior patterns, device types, network speeds, and locations, make it difficult to accurately replicate real world workloads, which is essential for driving effective performance testing.

Silk Performer

Silk Performer is unique in its ability to accurately replicate real world workloads. This involves replication of distinct user behaviour patterns, complex asynchronous web applications, mobile applications, different network speeds, or even, with Silk Performer CloudBurst, global access patterns.

Ensure application availability under peak load

Ensure application availability under peak load

Organizations must ensure that applications can handle peak loads brought on by spikes in market demand. Driving load testing via physical infrastructure can negatively impact capacity and capital expenditure, as well as result in low utilization of infrastructure in between running peak tests.

Silk Performer CloudBurst

Silk Performer CloudBurst enables you to flexibly plan performance and load testing workloads in the Cloud. This enables performance engineers to cost effectively generate peak loads on demand, and test application performance for users in different locations across the globe.

Successfully handle the mobile multiplier effect

Successfully handle the mobile multiplier effect

Apps have become wide-spread and frequently used, which introduces challenges to the back-office systems, which must deal with constant increases in traffic, as well as larger volumes of data. This means your application back-end can experience a 20-30 times increase in load as your users adopt mobile. This is known as the mobile multiplier effect.

Silk Performer

Silk Performer makes it very easy to record mobile application generated workloads directly from mobile devices over WiFi. Simply record the new workloads introduced by your mobile application, and load test mobile adoption levels to ensure that you are ready for the mobile multiplier effect.
