Appvance introduced Appvance UTP Performance Cloud to make load testing lower cost, fast, and easy for development and QA teams.

Built atop the Appvance UTP platform, Performance Cloud brings a very easy to use interface which allows novices to advanced users to get load test results in minutes, with no additional training. Additional features include mobile load testing as well as UX-level HTML5 performance tests using real browsers in the cloud.
