Load Impact Releases Plug-in for TeamCity Build Management and Continuous Integration Server; Runs 1 Millionth Load Test

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/13/14 -- Load Impact today announced the immediate availability of a plug-in for TeamCity that allows users of the popular Java-based build management and continuous integration server to run automated tests on the performance of their software.

The new plug-in gives TeamCity users access to multi-source load testing from up to 12 geographically distributed locations worldwide, advanced scripting, a GUI based session recorder to easily create tests simulating multiple typical users, and Load Impact's Server Metrics Agent (SMA) for correlating the server side impact of testing with CPU, memory, disk space and network usage.

Continuous integration is used by software engineers to merge multiple developers' work several times a day. Load testing is how companies make sure that code performs well under normal or heavy use.

"Using our for TeamCity plug-in makes it incredibly easy for companies to add regular, automated load tests to their nightly test suites, and as a result, get continuous feedback on how their evolving code base is performing," said Ragnar Lönn, Load Impact founder and CEO. "Any performance degradation, or improvement is detected immediately when the code that causes it is checked in, which means developers always know if their recent changes were good or bad for performance -- they're guided to writing code that performs well."

TeamCity is used by over 1 million developers at a diverse set of industry leaders around the world -- from Apple, Twitter and Intel, to Boeing, Volkswagen and Bank of America. More than 45,000 new developers join the TeamCity user community every month.

The release of the new plug-in coincides with the announcement today that Load Impact's cloud-based service has now been used to conduct over 1 million performance tests by website, app and API developers around the world.

"More than 100,000 developers in 190 countries are now using our tool to execute over 1,000 stress tests daily," said Lönn. "This is a major milestone for us, and a clear indicator that load testing is increasingly being integrated into the daily work of businesses worldwide."
