BlazeMeter provides performance testing as a service. The company enables engineers to run load tests on any mobile app, website, or API, simulating up to one million users on a developer-friendly self-service platform.
The partnership between New Relic and BlazeMeter began in January 2013, when the Mountain View, California, testing company was looking for an APM solution to complement its cloud-based technology. As a performance-testing provider, BlazeMeter saw the importance of using testing and monitoring hand in hand. That meant integration with a leading APM partner was essential. No surprise, BlazeMeter turned to New Relic.
A multilevel partnership
Today, BlazeMeter has a multilevel partnership with New Relic as a Connect partner, Platform partner, and Insights partner. Through a seamless integration, BlazeMeter has enabled all its customers to view their New Relic application performance data on their BlazeMeter dashboards. In addition, BlazeMeter data is available within the New Relic dashboard through an easy-to-use and intuitive plugin. This allows users to easily monitor end-user experience and application system key performance indicators (KPIs) while load testing.
“Testing makes it easy to trigger a symptom, but you need monitoring to identify the problem in the first place. That’s why it’s essential for us to integrate with a first-rate APM solution,” says Alon Girmonsky, founder and CEO of BlazeMeter.
In the video below, you can learn more about how BlazeMeter partnered with New Relic to extend its value proposition and win new business–all while optimizing the customer experience. Prospects see the two technologies working together seamlessly as an extension of both companies’ value propositions. When BlazeMeter sales reps mention the out-of-the-box integration with New Relic, prospects often respond, “That’s exactly what I’m looking for.’”
For BlazeMeter, New Relic isn’t just a service offered to customers (by the way, did you know that all BlazeMeter customers get New Relic Standard free of charge?). It’s also a solution that the BlazeMeter team uses heavily to optimize its own stack. The company’s development and ops teams count on New Relic to perform root cause analysis when downtime or slow performance occurs.
