Date 2014/10/6 8:20:00 | Topic: Product News

BlazeMeter, the leading load and performance testing as a self-service platform for mobile, web and APIs, today announced a new multi-phase technology partnership with Sauce Labs. This technology partnership will enable developers to seamlessly combine both functional and performance testing with BlazeMeter and Sauce Labs platforms, streamlining the testing process.  The announcement cements an already solid relationship between BlazeMeter and Sauce Labs, who will be joining forces at FutureStack14 to further educate developers about their combined solutions.

“BlazeMeter and Sauce Labs are the best-of-breed open source testing vendors,” said Alon Girmonsky, Founder and CEO of BlazeMeter. “JMeter and Selenium are the best open source functional and performance testing tools. The combination of the two companies and solutions will provide an industry standard testing stack based completely on open source.”

As the first step in the partnership, developers can now run performance tests on BlazeMeter using Selenium scripts simulating thousands of virtual concurrent users, each emulating a real browser or application, using a mobile device on a mobile network. Selenium performance testing is ideally suited for complex applications, and this new feature offers a valuable time-saving solution for large-scale retailers who can now create performance tests in minutes, not days. In the next phase of the partnership, BlazeMeter and Sauce Labs users will have access to an integrated solution that offers a one-stop-shop for all testing needs. This integration promises manifold benefits, including a single dashboard for all front-end and back-end testing KPIs and the ability to view the actual user experience on the browser when the site is under load.

“BlazeMeter does for load testing what Sauce Labs does for functional testing,” said Steve Hazel, Chief Product Officer, Sauce Labs. “With BlazeMeter's new support for Selenium, our services fit together better than ever. Developers can now efficiently cover different testing needs with a single investment in open source tools and skills.”
