BlazeMeter, provider of the JMeter-based performance testing cloud, has announced that it has secured $6.5 million in series A financing. The financing round was led by previous investor, YL Ventures and joined by Glilot Capital Partners. The new funding will be used to further develop BlazeMeter’s mobile testing platform and establish leadership in the mobile testing market for application performance. It will also be used to help grow BlazeMeter’s business in North America by establishing its U.S. headquarters in the San Francisco Bay Area.
BlazeMeter provides a single, cloud-based platform for all performance testing needs throughout an application’s lifecycle – from early development to production performance testing and post-production monitoring. YL Ventures and Glilot Captial Partners both support BlazeMeter’s vision for bringing simple scalability to Web and mobile app development and testing. BlazeMeter already enables companies to run tests in minutes scaling from 1,000 to more than 1,000,000 concurrent users across multiple geographic locations, all without the burden of building a full performance testing infrastructure.

“Application development is my passion,” said Alon Girmonsky, founder and CEO, BlazeMeter. “I consider creating tools that will simplify the application development and testing processes for developers as BlazeMeter’s mission. Our user base has grown six fold over the past 12 months and this is attributed to the increasing demand for mobile performance testing. The new funding will enable BlazeMeter to release many new features that will make this testing process even easier and more agile.”
