Neotys' NeoLoad Picked by VFA

Neotys, a company specializing in performance testing tools for web and mobile applications, revealed that its load testing tool NeoLoad has been chosen by VFA, a provider of comprehensive solutions for facilities capital planning and asset management, to load test VFA’s flagship software product VFA.facility before its availability.

Neotys NeoLoad is a load testing software solution designed for Web applications to realistically simulate user activity and analyze server behavior. Its exclusive technology enables quick and easy test.

VFA indicated in a press release that the company was looking out for a load testing solution for its VFA.facility, a facilities capital planning and management software that can be used to manage more than four billion square feet of real estate assets across the government, education, healthcare, and corporate markets.

VFA wanted to standardize the load, scalability and concurrency testing efforts for its VFA.facilty projects, which are delivered within a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS (News - Alert)) framework. The company also revealed that its evaluation group looe at several alternative load testing tools and determined that none of the other products would work because they were too complex, priced too high or fell short with regard to reporting and monitoring.

The evaluation group ultimately chose NeoLoad because of its ease-of-use, reporting and monitoring capabilities, and breadth of technologies that it supports, including Apache, JBoss, Oracle, Linux and Microsoft (News - Alert) Windows.

“Over five hundred customers around the world rely on VFA.facility, and part of our job within the software quality assurance group is to ensure that our SaaS platform remains available, stable and scales with user load. NeoLoad significantly raises our confidence in the quality of our software, enabling us to release a steady stream of stable, scalable software updates to our customers. We are extremely happy with the tool, and Neotys' support personnel are responsive and excellent,” said Lonnie Colman, senior director of Software Quality Assurance at VFA, in a press release.

Recently, BenchTech Software entered into an agreement with Neotys for using its NeoLoad load testing solution.
