Users can modernize and vastly improve their Legacy load testing procedures and outcomes by using the Enteros ZeroDev solution. It takes real production traffic and creates business scenarios for preproduction testing.

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Jan. 19, 2010 - Enteros, Inc., the industry leader in Production Performance Management, today announced extending the support of its Load2Test ZeroDev offering to a host of platforms including Oracle, SQL Server, Sybase, MySQL, Oracle EBUS Oracle Forms and HTTP/XML.

The ZeroDev offering, unique in the industry, analyzes production database and application network traffic and easily converts this information into load tests, load testing scenarios and resources. From the end user perspective, ZeroDev provides transparent operations for recreating production activity for load testing prior to production deployment. ZeroDev allows the user to generate load testing scenarios for performance, scalability and stress load testing. It offers validation for impact of hardware platform migration or consolidations as well as impact of application of software patches and upgrades. All this is based on replaying of business requests captured in the production environment. Data collection is achieved in a non-intrusive way from the network switch or interface. It requires no changes on production servers or any additional instrumentation and no specific agent is necessary.

"Economic reality demands that businesses become increasingly more agile and positioned to take advantage of the any new revenue markets and expand on existing ones while pursuing an optimum go to market time line. Therefore, business supporting applications need to be scalable to meet these growing demands. However, with growth comes the risk of customers not getting the expected quality of service they expect", said Ron Warshawsky CTO of Enteros. "Given this challenge, businesses are constantly faced with how to obtain a realistic prediction of application scalability. To address this problem, with new and customer proven technology, we are offering ZeroDev and supporting it on the most popular application and database platforms".

The commonly accepted legacy approach for load testing incorporates use of synthetic set of load tests. This assumes to represent some average production-like customer activity. However, there are inherent flaws with this methodology since only some hypothetical average set of customer transactions are used and the distribution similar of real customer activity is not achieved. Therefore, the application is tested using some mix of synthetic data rather than real production customer activity. This effort provides not fully accurate business outcomes and endangers an organizations ability to sustain production activity and endangers potential revenue growth. The ZeroDev solution enables a business to load test their applications and databases with authentic production traffic tailored to meet the real expectations of its current and future customers.

Use of ZeroDev improves the load testing process through increased authenticity of generated load. Making load testing simpler and less time consuming; resulting in the entire load test process becoming more manageable and reliable and a part of the day to day IT and QA tasks.
