Monitis Launches Database Load Testing from the Cloud

Press Release

San Jose 31 Aug, 2009 Monitis Inc., a premier provider of centralized systems monitoring in the cloud, today announces a new important release for its on-demand load testing service. New version of Monitis’ WebLoadTester allows database performance management and load testing from the cloud.

The new release of the Monitis’ WebLoadTester allows generation of the load for popular databases such as open source MySQL, Oracle, MS SQL, DB2 and others from the cloud. Usually it is the database that interferes with performance bottlenecks in the system and often just a single SQL query will be able to destroy the performance of the whole application. WebLoadTester makes database performance tuning simpler and affordable for application developers, database administrators (DBA), performance and quality engineers.

Applications load and performance testing are considered by many to be the “killer application”for cloud computing. WebLoadTester already supports both static and script based http load tests and supports SOAP load testing for service oriented architectures (SOA). WebLoadTester makes the load testing affordable for all kinds of businesses. The price per test is estimated to be as low as $4.18 per test with the use of  Monitis load tester. A user just has to enter the parameters of a database connection and queries, which he/she is keen to load and test metrics for. With a single click the load test will get started and the performance report will be generated. Then through e-mails it will be sent to the users and will be reachable on the web. These tests can be saved and recurrently executed by the users.

Professional Web testing requires effective resource monitoring. Monitis systems performance monitoring oversees utilization of resources such as databases, application servers, load balancers, and firewalls. During load tests, usage information about these resources can be collected and analyzed. When problems arise, you will need information about how resources are used throughout the entire structure of your Web application. “Our goal is to provide our customers an easy and cost efficient centralized performance management in the cloud, so that there is no need of purchasing, deploying and maintaining multiple servers, tools and services.” says Hovhannes Avoyan, CEO of Monitis.
