Mfr Part #: A8E90AAE
HPE Performance Center software is an enterprise-class performance engineering software, designed to facilitate standardization, centralization, global collaboration, and management of a performance engineering center of excellence.
- Supports performance testing of technologies together with your existing, legacy applications
- Accurately tests a mix of mobile and Internet users
- Decreases the risk of deploying systems that do not meet performance requirements
- Reduces hardware and software costs by accurately predicting application scalability and capacity
- Helps you establish intelligent SLAs before applications go live
- Shortens test cycles to accelerate delivery of high-quality applications
- Pinpoints end-user, system-level, and code-level bottlenecks rapidly and with ease
- Reduces the cost of defects by testing earlier in the application life cycle
- Driving quality through a standardized performance testing platform
Whether you want to standardize on a specific testing platform or develop a performance testing center of excellence (CoE), you can base your performance testing initiative on HPE Performance Center software. Test a broad range of applications, and many legacy systems. Run high-scale tests using minimal hardware, including any mix of physical and virtual environments, including public cloud infrastructure. Identify end-to-end performance bottlenecks using advanced monitoring and analysis tools, and ensure that applications meet the performance requirements of your business.
- Centralize, consolidate, control
Distributed application performance testing teams with multiple products often result in over-investment in licenses, hardware, and software. The first step toward increasing your ROI is to standardize your software and consolidate your testing resources. HPE Performance Center lets globally distributed performance engineers share a common testing infrastructure and execute multiple performance tests concurrently and continuously. Licenses and resources that were distributed across various projects can be consolidated into one central, easily accessible pool. This makes license management much easier, eliminates redundancy of hardware and software, and makes resources more accessible to various projects.
- A source of support for your IT environment
With support for more than dozens of protocols and a protocol software development kit, which allows partners to create protocols, HPE Performance Center provides a broad range of coverage and support for your strategic IT initiatives from ERP / CRM deployments and upgrades to application modernization initiatives. HPE Performance Center also supports testing for a variety of platforms including application in the cloud as well as on mobile platforms. HPE Performance Center provides the ability to seamlessly leverage public cloud infrastructure to deploy load generators (LGs) to scale up and down based on your performance testing needs, without complicated network configuration. With cloud testing, you can quickly and elastically scale up tests to meet the demands of your customer-facing business applications, reducing the cost and overhead of managing dedicated machines.
- Eyes on your infrastructure topology
HPE Performance Center also includes a topology module, which helps you define the infrastructure topology of the system under test. A high percentage of issues actually result from misconfiguration of the infrastructure and machines. Often testers don't know the details of the infrastructure they are testing against. Having everything in one place with the tests helps keep a record of the configurations, so that you know exactly what you are testing against, and keep track of changes between iterations. The visual topology also facilitates setting of monitors so that you can see exactly what is happening in the system as you run your tests.
- Increase organizational efficiencies
In addition to selecting a standard load testing solution, many companies are moving to an IT shared services model, called a performance testing CoE, to increase productivity and standardize processes. The efficiencies gained by creating a CoE with HPE Performance Center include increased testing productivity, improved collaboration across application teams, and the ability to outsource some or all of the tactical work of load testing. A CoE facilitates sharing of best practices and skills, and enhances your organizational efficiency by quickly delivering testing capability throughout the enterprise. In short, a CoE model increases your infrastructure and human resources utilization, and eventually drives better quality across the enterprise.
- Collaborate across the enterprise
Performance testers gain 24/7 web access to all testing operations, including uploading test scripts, scheduling load tests, creating load test scenarios, running multiple load tests, monitoring test executions, and analyzing results. When tests execute, any number of users can remotely observe the test and configure customized views of the application under test. HPE Performance Center provides a collaborative infrastructure so that project managers, developers, and performance engineers can all view load testing data, progress, and run information in real time. HPE Performance Center increases collaboration within teams with features such as web-based access, asset sharing, project grouping, and version control.
- Test performance in context
HPE Performance Center adds a "project" concept to the load testing process - all load testing goals, scripts, scenarios, results, users, and resources are assigned to and managed in the context of the project. It also supports project grouping such that smaller projects can inherit assets from larger projects. Project-level dashboards and business reports provide a clear view of project progress, process, and resources used. Privileged management is role based and per project, allowing users to see and interact with only the projects relevant to them. Resources are allocated per project so that the correct amount of infrastructure is available on demand to the project team. In addition, you can track project progress across releases and over time.
- Identify the performance testing model that suits your needs
For very large organizations, an optimal choice may be a hybrid solution: a CoE to focus on the most visible and critical projects in the company, and a standard, shared, testing utility that all other groups can leverage to run their own performance testing efforts for smaller projects. HPE Performance Center supports a dual-use model, allowing the CoE to focus on the larger projects while lending external technical support and other IT services to remote groups or development teams.
- Get robust management
HPE Performance Center provides enterprise-level management, including user administration and rights management, role-based privilege management, project-level resource allocation, and usage auditing features. HPE Performance Center also provides robust systems management to operate, manage, and maintain the load testing infrastructure. In real time, your system administrators can see the operational status of all HPE Performance Center resources. In addition, remote patch administration and remote reboot capabilities provide centralized control over a globally distributed load farm.
- Integration fosters testing quality
HPE Performance Center can integrate with HPE ALM to provide reporting into the quality of an application or project across the entire testing life cycle. Once it integrates, it becomes an integral part of ALM so that for a single project, you can see the status of the manual, functional, performance, and security tests to determine the exact quality of the application at any given time. Integrated dashboards provide executives with complete visibility into the application quality.
