SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - February 23, 2011) - Impetus Technologies, an award-winning software product engineering company, today announced the release of SandStorm 5.4, the new version of its automated performance testing tool -- SandStorm.

SandStorm 5.4 is the enhanced version of its previous avatars and provides a host of new benefits. Some of its notable features include easy parameterization of FLEX, Ajax and Java objects using correlation, multiple browser simulation during test execution, auto-correlation, UI for request filtering and response evaluation, advanced script debugging capabilities, wizard for test scripting, and reporting dashboard with drill down capabilities. Sandstorm offers support for multiple communication protocols, monitoring module and Virtual user control as a single package. 

This tool can help reduce the cost of an enterprise's performance engineering initiatives by at least 30%, vis-à-vis other popular performance testing tools. The upcoming SandStorm release on cloud infrastructure will further increase the savings up to 60% over current performance testing costs.

Shirish Bhale, Director - Engineering, Impetus Technologies, quotes, "When it comes to enterprise applications, there are numerous 'potential points of failure' beyond the limits of application code that can be addressed by Performance Engineering. Our services in this domain help predict application performance, system diagnostics and capacity planning through the use of proven technologies."

SandStorm, a pure Java, non-intrusive software, exercises an entire enterprise infrastructure, emulating thousands of concurrent, active and/or passive connected users with real-world production scenarios, and using minimal hardware resources. It enables performance measurement and prediction, thereby helping solution providers realize these objectives in a competitive yet cost-effective manner.

SandStorm has been successfully implemented across various domains and has been effective in performance testing of Mobile, Healthcare, SIP protocols, AMF, Messaging protocols, Web services, JDBC, Scalability and Software Capacity planning.
