SaaS Based Performance Certification

Learn, why our customers selected NetCloud over other Products

Cavisson NetCloud is a feature rich enterprise-ready SaaS based Performance Testing, Certification, and Capacity Analysis solution, the capabilities of which, by no means are restricted to the features mentioned below:

  • Massive, internet scale load generation: NetCloud makes testing with millions of active users not only possible, but easy to manage. Ability to run high volume tests in a controlled lab environment allows multiple executions while “tweaking” appropriate variables being analyzed, with the assurance that other variables will not change. Without such a solution, the only alternative is to use a microcosm of users, which is likely to produce distorted results. NetCloud appliance’s advance technology can simulate millions of concurrent users.
  • Internet-TrueTM load modeling: NetCloud makes testing with millions of active users not only possible, but easy to manage. Ability to run high volume tests in a controlled lab environment allows multiple executions while “tweaking” appropriate variables being analyzed, with the assurance that other variables will not change. Without such a solution, the only alternative is to use a microcosm of users, which is likely to produce distorted results. NetCloud appliance’s advance technology can simulate millions of concurrent users.
  • Web user behavior simulation: Built-in mechanism to allow modeling of page reloads and click-away by users.
  • Cache Monitor: Cavisson NetCloud is that rare cloud-based performance certification solution that also monitors cache (Akamai) and is able to monitor and determine the % of cacheable application along-with the % that got cached.
  • Powerful Monitoring and Diagnostics: NetCloud allows deep insight into the behavior of the application as the tests are executing. Its powerful diagnostics for performance testing includes but is not limited to following:
    • Correlation: With a single click, analyze two or more members or measurements in the groups showing the tendency to vary together, contributing to the issue. The root cause can be determined by correlating spike with other metrics.
    • Alerts: NetCloud allows setting up of early warning mechanism in form of behavioral or capacitive alerts to find out metrics deviating from its baseline.
    • Runtime comparisons with baseline: NetCloud offers ability to validate new releases or fixes by performing comparisons with baseline.
  • Production Scenario Recreation: NetCloud has ability to recreate production scenario, using access log replay, to:
    • Mimic the real-life production traffic to test applications with a more practical approach, or
    • Recreate production issues for validation of fix
  • Client-side testing: NetCloud provides comprehensive client side testing to help improve the user experience. It offers following reports:
    • Performance (DOM load, on-load, page load, rendering time)
    • Caching metrics (browser cache, network cache)
    • Offenders by DNS time, Load time
    • Page score
    • Waterfall and comparison
    • Clips and recording of page-wise user interaction
  • Built-in internet topographies: Enable real world modeling of test scenarios based on actual geographical distribution of users. For instance, a test scenario can be modeled to run with 20% users in EMEA, 35% eastern US, 20% western US, 15% Asia and the data center in Boston, MA. NetCloud introduces appropriate WAN degradation characteristics (see WAN simulation) based on built-in empirical mapping, which can be easily customized.
  • Reporting and Dashboard: NetCloud comes with a powerful dashboard to visually illustrate performance test metrics. NetCloud has specific dashboards providing both technical (engineering) view as well as business (executive) view. Besides this, it has comprehensive report templates providing:
    • Trend analysis
    • Comparison of releases
    • Run-time percentile distribution
  • Compare application metrics for behavior and responses at different geographical location: NetCloud allow comparing metrics, for example, response time of an application when accessed by users from New York, Chicago, and San Francisco. This helps organizations optimize application performance for real-life geographically distributed users.
