HP LoadRunner in the Cloud

HP LoadRunner is available via Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), making performance testing accessible to businesses of all sizes. This on-demand software gives clients a flexible “pay as you go” approach for performance testing of mission-critical applications and websites.

HP LoadRunner in the Cloud makes performance testing and load testing ubiquitous to organizations and projects of all sizes. This software delivers cloud performance testing capabilities that enable performance validation across your application lifecycle.

Intel® Core™ vPro™ Processors

XenClient can take advantage of all the great new capabilities and the new levels of performance delivered by Intel.
XenClient’s bare metal architecture is designed not only to put as little code as possible between the VMs and the bare metal but it’s also optimized to offload as much as possible to the underlying Intel hardware.

So all the great work Intel has put into their 2nd Generation Core vPro Processors gets used by XenClient and the performance gets passed right up to the Windows VMs running on top of it.

Citrix XenClient

Citrix XenClient is a high-performance, bare-metal hypervisor that runs directly on the client device hardware, dividing up the resources of the machine and enabling multiple operating systems to run side by side in complete isolation.
