NRG Global, the leading provider of application load and stress testing software and OpSource, Inc., the leader in enterprise cloud and managed hosting, today joined forces to offer on-demand testing and monitoring solutions for enterprise-ready cloud solutions. NRG Global and OpSource are at the forefront of the changing landscape of load testing and performance monitoring, providing cloud-based, turn-key packages, ideal for small businesses to large corporations, and consultants or value-added partners. NRG Global will also leverage the OpSource Partner Ecosystem to provide global deployment options for customers as they become available. As part of the partnership, NRG Global becomes a Validated Cloud Solution provider.
To minimize test environment expenditures and gain better control of their IT resources, companies are turning to cloud computing. Offering more than traditional cloud and hosting services, OpSource provides the integration, engineering, marketing and sales support required to launch and scale cloud-based solutions. Together with NRG Global, they provide a Testing as a Service (TaaS) solution that plays right into the hand of organizations driven to reduce IT budgets, yet faced with the task of providing quality assurance. “While there are several benefits to testing from the cloud” says NRG Global’s Sam Benihya,“the key advantage is the ability to simulate from hundreds to thousands of users without the burden of capital investments or the headache of maintaining your own test environment.”
The OpSource Partner Ecosystem is designed to enable integrators, developers, ISVs, development platform companies and service providers to provide integrated solutions for their joint customers. This eases the burden of integration, speeds time to market and lowers the total cost of implementation and ownership for the customer. OpSource’s Validated Cloud Solutions Program offers end-users the assurance that our Partners’ cloud-based application or platform operates on the OpSource Cloud. The solution has been tested and validated by OpSource and the Partner.
Businesses of every size can benefit from cloud and managed hosting solutions that are secure, high performance and easy to integrate and control. IT administrators and developers typically take on the burden of integrating software, SaaS Platforms and software development platforms on their own.
“The goal of the VCS program is to provide customers with a pre-tested and pre-integrated solution that increases operational efficiencies and is more cost-effective to deploy and manage,” says Jon Beck, SVP of Worldwide Channels and Alliances, OpSource. “Together NRG Global and OpSource offer IT and operations departments a streamlined process for rolling out new cloud-based applications, enabling organizations to focus on more strategic corporate initiatives."
The OpSource-powered NRG Global cloud solution is immediately available for online purchase directly from the NRG Global website. Signing up is simple and customers can choose either Pay-As-You-Go or Monthly Pre-Paid plans.
