Look Who's Made the Move

What do GoDaddy, Ebay and McAfee all have in common? They made the move from HP LoadRunner to WebLOAD.

More Virtual Users at Half the Cost

WebLOAD is the sweet spot of load testing. No hidden costs, no setup fees. Our standard offering includes twice the virtual users for typically half the price when compared to LoadRunner.

No one likes buying software only to find out that the best features are locked. WebLOAD has only one tier of users – VIP. You get all of our features from day one.

Enterprise-Scale Features Plus a Few Surprises

Like LoadRunner, WebLOAD is designed to handle large-scale performance testing. Many of our customers run hundreds of use cases on a daily basis with 3,000 – 10,000 concurrent users to load test on- premise, cloud and hybrid applications.

Customers who have switched from LoadRunner have found WebLOAD’s correlation engine to be much faster and efficient, saving hours of manual edits. And our Web Dashboard (which is supplied, by the way, at no extra cost) is used in so many ways for collaborative analysis, that it’d take too long to elaborate.

But since we do need to convince you of WebLOAD’s breadth and depth for you to download the free trial, here are its key components followed by a short LoadRunner comparison.

WebLOAD offers:

A comprehensive IDE with correlation, parameterization, response validation, native JavaScripting and Java that both let you enhance your scripts in the most detailed and creative ways, and of course debugging.

A Load Generation Console generates massive virtual user load – locally and on the cloud, on Windows or Linux, via AWS or other cloud providers.

Analytics dashboards with over 80 configurable report templates and a web dashboard for collaborative root cause analysis.

Integrations for using WebLOAD together with existing applications such as APM tools (Dynatrace, AppDynamics, NewRelic), open source software (Selenium, Jenkins, Git), mobile testing (Perfecto Mobile), functional testing tools (Ranorex, Original Software), and more.
