LoadUIWeb by SmartBear Surpasses 16,000 Downloads, Simplifies Host Management in New Version

Developers Laud New Host Management Configurator for Significantly Improving Efficiency, User-Friendliness and Giving Testers What They Really Want
Anaheim, Calif. — October 01, 2013 — SmartBear Software, provider of software quality tools used by more than one million developers and testers worldwide, is taking aim at efficiency and user-friendliness with new LoadUIWeb 2.9. The new version of the popular free web performance testing tool, which has been downloaded over 16,000 times since its launch in April, continues to help testers and DevOps teams to do more with much less with the addition of the new Host Management Configurator.
“The Host Management Configurator is definitely a time saver,” said Jaakko Anttonen, IT Service Manager at Rautaruukki Oyj, who took a test drive of LoadUIWeb 2.9. “It has greatly simplified load testing for developers and is a great feature to have for development teams who are always under time pressure. The Host Management Configurator in the free version of LoadUIWeb will definitely help to improve overall software development quality.”
The Host Management Configurator empowers testers to replace any host called in a scenario while turning on and off any host called in a scenario. The feature, available in both free and Pro versions, improves ease-of-use and efficiency by several fold and simplifies host configuration tasks that require several hours to just a few mouse clicks.
“Testers will definitely appreciate the time-saving benefits of the Host Management Configurator,” said Mike Punsky, Product Manager, Performance Tools at SmartBear. “By adding this feature to both the free and Pro versions, we reinforce our freeware promise on delivering standalone, fully-featured free tools that drive product leadership and innovation through quality software development. The fact that LoadUIWeb has already passed the 16,000-download mark since its launch is testament to its continuing success.”
LoadUIWeb Pro 2.9 is available with the free version. Besides the Host Management Configurator feature, the new paid version improves performance and stability with a high number of virtual users and cloud connectivity enhancements.
