PRNewswire: CYRANO Announces Release of OpenSTA, Free and Open Source Web Load Testing Architecture

Sep 28, 2000, 22:54 (0 Talkback[s])

"CYRANO today announced the availability of OpenSTA (Open System Testing Architecture), a distributed software testing architecture based on CORBA. By using OpenSTA, Project Managers and IT Staff can generate load to any targeted system by realistically simulating hundreds to thousands of virtual users through OpenSTA's distributed architecture. Additionally, users of OpenSTA can gather precise performance measurement and analysis on the system under test, so that they can predict how their systems will behave under unexpected growth rates in customer load. OpenSTA source code and installable is now available on http://opensta.sourceforge.net. OpenSTA is licensed under GNU GPL."

"This could not have come at a better time," said Noelle Beaudin, Marketing Product Manager for OpenSTA. "Many DOTCOM and DOTCORP companies have told us that their Web applications are becoming an IT management crisis. The cost of downtime can be enormous, and something which is clearly measurable, usually in big dollar signs and lost customers."

"Reliability is a key concern to any business owner. The concern about the reliability of their web applications, and the reliability of the software they implement to analyze and test those applications. Investing in a proprietary capture and replay tool to simulate realistic load of thousands of virtual users may be wasting money if the evolution of such a tool is not fast enough. Open Source software has a proven reliability track record. By releasing OpenSTA today, every business owner can now ensure the quality and reliability of their applications, and the software that they choose to analyze and test those applications."
