-- New Comprehensive Management Dashboard and Enterprise-Level Account Management Features Added
SAN MATEO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr. 22, 2009--
Keynote® Systems (Nasdaq:KEYN), the global leader in on-demand mobile
test & measurement solutions for continuously improving the online
experience, today announced LoadPro
2.0, a greatly enhanced version of the world’s most powerful Web site
load testing solution delivered as a turnkey managed consulting service.
The much enhanced version includes a brand new end user portal, an
expansive overview dashboard, complete and precise visibility into real
time tests as they execute and comprehensive enterprise-level account
management. All of this new functionality is built on top of a dedicated
load testing network that generates unrivaled load capacity. LoadPro 2.0
can deliver up to one million concurrent users with the capability to
generate load across multiple Internet backbones and countries.
“The biggest retail and online portals that use Keynote LoadPro wanted
real time visualization of running tests, a complete management
dashboard and enterprise account management functionality,” said Vik
Chaudhary, vice president of product management and corporate
development at Keynote. “We’re delivering those features in this release
and breaking new ground in the value that managed load testing services
When conducting load tests, the importance of precisely monitoring the
ongoing test is paramount. Keynote
LoadPro 2.0 provides this capability in a single pane including a
comprehensive overview of the ongoing status of the live test as it
occurs. Real time graph modification and drill down metrics are also now
just a click away, allowing system administrators and technical staff
from various departments the ability to access the portal to correlate
LoadPro load metrics to their own system’s data.
Conducting very large scale Web site load tests requires the involvement
of a great number of staff across multiple departments within an
enterprise. The new enterprise workgroup administration functionality
included with LoadPro 2.0 now delivers a high degree of sophisticated
management capabilities including the ability to assign appropriate
levels of authorization. The new enterprise workgroup administration
features increases the number of people across departments that can now
easily and comfortably work together on setting up and running Web site
Additionally, Web site load test budget allowances can now be assigned
and tracked departmentally, while allowing visibility of test results
across multiple departments within a single company.
Delivering the power of the Internet at the click of a mouse
necessitates the need for comprehensive overview and tracking
capabilities. With the new release users now have a management console
dashboard with high level summary script, load test scheduling and
configuration information. Furthermore, users can now schedule and run
their own Web site load tests and are provided with increased visibility
and insight during the actual real time running of the load test while
it’s being executed.
“This release of LoadPro improves upon what is already the industry
leading solution,” said Vik Chaudhary. “We already offer the Internet’s
largest and most accurate Web site load testing and measurement
infrastructure. Now, we’ve greatly improved the LoadPro portal interface
to exert the full power of our load generating infrastructure and test
the limits of any Web site.”
LoadPro is a hosted Internet-based service. As companies move away
from enterprise-based client-server applications to Internet-based
applications, traditional onsite load testing solutions are losing favor
to hosted Internet-based services. In contrast to other solutions,
Keynote owns their load testing server network to guarantee the delivery
of pre-configured precisely timed load levels and accurate performance
measurement from the end user perspective. With this release, LoadPro
increases the distance between it and any other competitive solutions on
the market today.
