Spirent Communications (News - Alert), a company that offers testing wireless networks, services and devices, recently announced that aiScaler has selected its Spirent Blitz.io cloud-based testing solution for a comparative analysis of its solution with those from two other vendors in the Amazon Web Services (News - Alert) (AWS) marketplace: Citrix NetScaler and F5 BIG-IP.
Blitz helps application and website developers with powerful yet simple capabilities including continuous monitoring, performance testing, and remediation. The solution brings load and performance testing early into the development cycle. Blitz can also be used through a Ruby GEM (News - Alert) and triggered through the Firefox or Chrome plugins. In the development phase, Blitz's Performance Testing capabilities allow the users to quickly understand the performance of their application in an easy, simple, and affordable manner.
"When selecting a load-testing tool, a cloud based tool was really our only option,” said Milo Muller, director of cloud operations at aiScaler. “Our product is hosted in the cloud, and needed something capable of attacking the ADC (News - Alert)'s from multiple servers around the world, ensuring a real-world simulation, something that is simply impossible with a local machine. aiScaler tried several cloud-based solutions, but in the end it decided to use Blitz.io for their comparison review with F5 Big IP and Citrix NetScaler.”
Spirent Communications offers an extensive portfolio of solutions to test data centers, cloud computing environments, high speed Ethernet networks and services, 3G/4G wireless networks and devices, network security, and global navigation satellite systems.
The company recently launched Quantum, an automated system for measuring and driving improvements to the battery life of mobile devices. Quantum (News - Alert) is the industry's first user experience analytics system to automatically execute consumer use cases on a mobile device while performing synchronized power consumption measurements. Quantum allows thousands of tests to run automatically, ensuring power consumption and battery life measurements are statistically robust, repeatable, and highly realistic with respect to real-world performance.
