Shunra Software Demonstrates Integration Points with HP for its Mobile Performance Platform
PHILADELPHIA --(Business Wire)--
Shunra (News - Alert) Software, the industry-recognized authority in network
virtualization and application performance engineering, today announced
integration with HP load testing and performance technologies in support
of the company's mobile
Shunra demonstrated this integration in a webinar presented with HP on
January 24, 2012, now available on Shunra's website at http://www.shunra.com/resources/on-demand-webinars.
The webinar details Shunra's ability to capture real-world mobile
network conditions and virtualize those dynamic conditions in a load
test environment powered by HP
LoadRunner and HP
"By combining Shunra's industry-leading mobile application performance
testing solutions with HP's load testing products and HP
Application Lifecyce Management (ALM), organizations now have the
ability to reduce risk, cost and time, by preventing failed application
launches," said Bill Varga, COO, Shunra. "The mobile wave has the power
to propel companies and organizations forward, or wreak havoc. With
Shunra's vision of a mobile performance platform and our demonstrated
integration with HP in mobile application test environments, the risk of
mobile failure is greatly diminished."
Shunra's vision on mobile application performance testing includes best
practice guidelines in several areas of the testing process: Functional
& Device, Networks & Variability, Load & Performance, and Backend
Infrastructure and Capacity.
The vision includes Shunra's open approach to technology, making
integration with leading mobile test technologies easy. For example,
Shunra for HP, a network virtualization and performance testing
solution, is embedded in and shipped with both HP LoadRunner and HP
Performance Center. Customers benefit by having real-world mobile
network conditions incorporated into the load test environment,
including virtualization of variable bandwidth, latency, jitter and
The integration improves the accuracy and reliability of load test
environments, making them more representative of the real world. In
addition, customers have the ability to precisely virtualize the real
world in the test environment, which means that load and performance
test results are more predictive of how an application will actually
behave once deployed.
"Testing applications without consideration for the variability and
constant changing nature of mobile network conditions is a mistake that
organizations cannot afford to make," continued Varga. "The impact of
the mobile network is not just felt by the mobile end user; back-end
infrastructure and server resources are particularly susceptible to
network conditions and the user sessions they support. With Shunra and
our partners powering a mobile performance strategy, organizations can
take the guesswork out of performance testing and deliver optimized apps
without fear of post-deployment failure."
Shunra is actively taking its mobile platform to market, participating
in numerous partner-driven events. Shunra will participate with HP at
the upcoming Mobile World Congress (News - Alert) in Barcelona, Spain from February 27
to March 1. Shunra will demonstrate its integrated mobile performance
capabilities in the HP Mobile booth in Hall 7, 7C37. Shunra will also
participate as an exhibitor at HP's premier client event, HP
Discover, taking place June 4 - 7 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Shunra is part of the HP
Enterprise Management Alliance Program (EMAP), where Shunra has been
certified as a Gold Business Partner.
