Appvance Unified Test Platform

The Next Generation of Testing

The only Agile app performance testing platform that drives true beginning-to-end validation, 20X faster than old tools (like LoadRunner), so you can debug, deliver, and improve applications on Web, Ajax, Mobile, publishing platforms, backend services, Oracle apps and more. Once you use PerformanceCloud, you won’t go back.

Appvance PerformanceCloud (APC) is a world-class platform for testing modern applications through functional and performance improvement (load and performance testing). APC2 tests Web and Ajax apps, SOA services, Message (EMS, BPM) apps, mobile apps, Oracle applications and many others. Test apps while they are being developed by repurposing your unit tests to be functional tests, and repurpose the same tests to be data-driven performance tests. Drive sites and apps from one to millions of concurrent users from the cloud, or your local grid, or both. Create user scenarios/profiles in minutes – instead of days – and with no coding necessary. And drive these automatically after every build from your Agile Platform (like Hudson, Jenkins, Cloudbees, Rally etc.). Tests drive the app from beginning-to-end (including the presentation layer), at a protocol level, or both. APC takes your testing deeper, faster, and larger than ever possible before.

Test Faster, Deeper, Larger
Appvance PerformanceCloud (APC) is the easiest way to surface performance bottlenecks and functional issues in the way you build and improve modern applications: Ajax, Browsers (IE, Chrome, Safari, Firefox, Opera, WebKit, Mobile Web browsers), MQ/BPM/ESB, SOA, SOAP/REST, Oracle Forms etc. APC2 rapidly puts a proven methodology into your hands with a test platform that is completely browser-based, runs tests in grid and cloud environments, pinpoints root causes and offers mitigation. APC2 repurposes a single test script to be a functional test (smoke tests, regression tests) data-driven load and performance test (scalability tests, stress tests) and production monitors. Your test script may be an Appvance Designer Script, Selenium script, Sahi script, SoapUI test suite, JMeter script, and/or unit test written in Java, Ruby, Python, and PHP. The ease of scriptless test authoring and the industries first beginning-to-end testing means your team will deliver more actionable results, sooner, and with deeper analysis.

Also Compliments Your Existing Test Platform
APC2 works well as a compliment to HP LoadRunner and other older tools. Re-imagine HP LoadRunner handling Ajax apps with ease, each and everytime. Imagine testing SOAP and REST services without additional expensive protocol handlers. Imagine running your Selenium scripts as performance tests in a global grid of test injectors. Imagine connecting your Jenkins continuous integration server with APC, LoadRunner, Selenium, and any other test platform. That is Appvance innovation. And it results in increased productivity for your entire development cycle and team.

Isolate Performance Bottlenecks
APC2 uniquely tests 100% of the end-user experience by driving the app through the browser (IE, Chrome, Firefox, Safari, webkit etc.), at the protocol level, or both together. Drives true user behavior and actual response rates as seen at the UX from the Cloud, from your local grid of test machines, or both. Tests up to millions of virtual users. Immediate access to live drill-down reports surface the root cause of performance & security bottlenecks or failures.

Increase App Availability and Performance
Apps tested with APC2 have scalability issues surfaced and resolved. APC testing and results analysis identifies why your app does not scale. APC methodology and expert product support identify the issues you will encounter and how to solve them in a Scalable Architecture using Integration, BPM, ESB, NoSQL, BigData technology.

Modernize Your App Development the Agile Build-And-Test Way
APC is a powerful integrated test platform for functional testing, performance testing, and Application Performance Management (APM) all correlated into one solution. APC integrates Continuous Integration (CI), source code repositories (GIT, svn, cvs), test management (HP QC, Rally, Jira), scheduling (Jenkins) into one solution.

Appvance CEO: Why choose Appvance?Appvance Designer Creates Complex Test Cases With No Coding
APC Designer is a Web and Ajax recording environment for creating functional tests. Designer comes with our Patent Pending uxAvatar(TM) technology to drive Ajax apps in IE, Chrome, Firefox, Safari, and Opera. Export recorded user profiles/scenarios to Java, PHP, Python, Ruby and most other common test scripts to edit. Or just run Designer Scripts from APC with no coding. Creating complex data-driven tests has never been faster or easier!Getting The Entire Picture of App Performance
Uncover performance issues in virtually all applications with complex user scenarios. Run multiple (10’s or hundreds of) user profiles/scenarios concurrently in performance tests. Run beginning-to-end browser-based app tests concurrently with HTTP, SOAP, REST, ESB, BPM protocol-level tests.

Agile Methodology, Continuous Integration, and Test Automation
APC2 includes continuous integration with Jenkins, source code repository with GIT, svn, test management for Agile story mapping to test use cases with Rally, and Cloud/Grid automation with the clients to Amazon Web Services (AWS) and IBM SoftLayer built-in. APC automates 100% of the Agile methodology.

Correlated Application Performance Management (APM)
Continuous server resource monitoring and data compilation correlated with virtual user test activity. Compatible with DynaTrace, New Relic, and the Appvance included APCMonitor, or a combination of all.

Global Test Cloud
Run tests locally in your test environment behind the firewall, from the Appvance Cloud, Amazon AWS, RackSpace OpenStack, Azure, Savvis, IBM or any combination. APC drives real beginning-to-end tests from dozens of locations around the world.

Already Supports Your Backend Systems
APC is fully compatible with TIBCO, Oracle, IBM, Redhat, Jboss, Microsoft, Mulesoft, Software AG platforms.

Easy to Use Record-Play-Results Interface Drives Rapid Adoption
Advanced uxAvatar Designer is 100% graphical record/play no-code environment. Scripting: Selenium, Java, Python, Ruby, Groovy, C#, Perl, PHP.
