BlazeMeter Announces Partnership With Acquia

A New Era in Load and Performance Testing for Drupal Users

TEL AVIV, ISRAEL--(Marketwire - Aug 6, 2012) - BlazeMeter, provider of the Apache JMeter based load testing cloud, today announced its partnership with Acquia as an Acquia Network Partner. The combined forces of Acquia and BlazeMeter create a new standard in the world of load and performance testing. Acquia is a commercial open source software company providing products, services, and technical support for the open source Drupal content management system and BlazeMeter provides developers ways to quickly and seamlessly create comprehensive load tests on its load testing cloud.

This swiftly follows BlazeMeter's release of its module for the open-source Drupal software that allows Drupal developers the ability to launch comprehensive load tests and fine tune Drupal websites in minutes, using next generation cloud testing tools.

Acquia Network customers can now load test their Drupal installations and fine-tune them before going to production. They can use BlazeMeter to simulate realistic traffic that originates from the cloud, allowing users to test the load their website or app can handle, locate and resolve bugs and retest as needed.

"Partnering with Acquia was an obvious step in BlazeMeter's evolution," said Alon Girmonsky, Founder & CEO of BlazeMeter. "Acquia is the world leader for enterprise level Drupal deployment. Together, we provide the most comprehensive combination of tools for the development and testing of Drupal based sites representing a significant leap forward and reinforces BlazeMeter's position in the vanguard of performance and load testing."

Peter Guagenti, Acquia's Vice President of Products, agrees, "Acquia continues to build great relationships with organizations that provide amazing software and tools for Drupal. BlazeMeter's load testing service will be tremendously valuable to our customers as they work to ensure their site is performing at its peak."

Getting started with BlazeMeter is simple. Acquia Managed Cloud customers will have BlazeMeter provisioned for them automatically. Customers hosting their own sites on the Acquia Network should log into the Acquia Network, select BlazeMeter from the Services page and follow the on-screen instructions. Time to test is less than 5 minutes. 

Acquia offers free Drupal distributions, commercial support, and a cloud-based hosting platform for one stop Drupal infrastructure support. Acquia's portfolio of Drupal products and services, along with the Acquia Network of support experts and management tools, combine to create an unparalleled enterprise Drupal solution. BlazeMeter is integrated with the Acquia Network subscription service.

Acquia customers are eligible to run 40 tests on BlazeMeter's load testing cloud for one month -- free of charge!
