ShunraPredictor Accelerates Application Performance Analysis From Days to Minutes
PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Shunra, the industry-recognized leader in Application Performance Engineering (APE) solutions for WAN, Web, Mobile, and Cloud-based networks, today announced the availability of ShunraPredictor(TM), the fastest and most comprehensive technology yet developed for identifying, predicting, analyzing and reporting application performance prior to deployment. In seconds, ShunraPredictor pinpoints and analyzes application and network performance – identifying performance bottlenecks, enabling rapid pre-deployment remediation, and helping significantly reduce remediation costs and time to solution.
According to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), 80 percent of Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) costs are associated with remediating failed or underperforming applications after deployment, when the ineffective application has already had a negative impact on the end user or customer experience.
“ShunraPredictor is about saving our customers time and money,” said Shunra COO Bill Varga. “By providing a quick turnaround on performance analysis, ShunraPredictor accelerates decisions about remediation, optimization and time-to-deployment. Applications are launched with expediency, efficiency, and confidence in performance. ShunraPredictor aligns application performance through customer SLOs and SLAs, helping drive improved ROI through coordinated goals and expectations.”
ShunraPredictor’s actionable and customizable reports can be automatically created for unique constituents within an organization, delivering high-level performance and SLO/SLA analysis of potential performance bottlenecks for executive review while at the same time enabling the QA and development teams to accelerate and automate their analysis process.
“Why wouldn’t you test the performance of your applications before you deploy?” said Jim Metzler, Industry Analyst, Ashton, Metzler and Associates. “It’s much easier to remediate performance issues in a pre-production environment than it is to clean up and resurrect once you’ve disappointed your customers with poor performance. ShunraPredictor provides the analysis that allows enterprises to expeditiously take action, remediate and deploy successfully.”
ShunraPredictor is a significant enhancement of the Shunra for HP Software(TM) solution for HP LoadRunner and HP Performance Center. Shunra for HP Software is the only HP-certified application performance solution for customers to test, analyze and remediate the performance of distributed applications using real-world network impairments. Shunra for HP Software identifies latency, bandwidth, packet loss and congestion issues in networks – without the need to deploy remote load generators – and enables enterprises to deploy applications with confidence in performance.
“ShunraPredictor completes the picture for load testers in the HP Software community,” said David Berg, Senior Product Manager for Shunra. “Customers testing applications leverage HP technology to simulate users and Shunra’s technology to replicate the network, and then report on their results. Creating those reports was previously a manual task requiring days or weeks, and still left customers without location-specific performance insight. With ShunraPredictor, this is an automated process that is completed in seconds. The outcome is an immediate, high-level overview of how applications are currently performing all over the world and how future access state performance will change. Shunra’s accuracy provides customers with a high level of confidence in their application deployments.”
