PALO ALTO, Calif.-July 11, 2012 – Apica, a leading performance testing and monitoring provider for cloud and mobile applications, has joined forces with Kaazing, the leading enabler of the Living Web™, to bring performance monitoring to applications built with the HTML5 WebSocket standard. Kaazing customers moving applications to HTML5 and WebSocket extensions will now be able to validate response time and function with Apica’s real-browser monitoring to improve the end-user experience.
“Kaazing has defined the WebSocket standard, and its platform is leading the industry for the development of live, real-time, and interactive enterprise applications,” said Sven Hammar, CEO of Apica. “Together with Kaazing, we are bringing a new layer of performance insight to web and mobile applications. These high-volume data transaction applications require real-time web communication that is both scalable and reliable. Now Kaazing customers can monitor response time of browser renderings and data communications to optimize the end-user experience of their applications.”
As mobile device usage continues to grow exponentially, accessibility to live, real-time web communications is increasingly vital to businesses. In this hyper-connected mobile world, the HTML5 WebSocket standard makes a fully connected web possible. Kaazing has pioneered this technology to give companies the power to quickly deploy distributed, dynamic, and massively scalable HTML5 web applications that are highly interactive and instantly accessible from anywhere. The Kaazing WebSocket platform builds on the Kaazing founders’ fundamental knowledge of the standard and adds security, scalability, and other key enterprise enhancements to bring companies to the next generation of applications.
Apica WebPerformance Monitor records the true user experience of web applications to measure performance metrics, including response time and availability. By automatically capturing screenshots during every step of the transaction, error messages are easier to troubleshoot.
