What’s new in StormRunner 2.4?

There are three major updates in StormRunner 2.4: Private Cloud, Selenium (yes, you read it right), and Regions.

The earlier version of StormRunner has private cloud in beta. But now the private is no longer in beta. You can set up concurrent execution, automatic Vusers, and load generator distribution. If you have a private cloud in place, you can install on-premise load generators to execute tests. You can install private cloud agent in Windows and Linux. But the limitation is, you can use only below script types:

The following script types are supported:

  • Web HTTP/HTML
  • TruAPI
  • SAP Web
  • Gatling
  • JMeter

Also, if you have a private Amazon Web Services cloud account, you can run load tests on AWS by leveraging StormRunner.

Selenium Support

If you have Selenium scripts, you can run load tests using Selenium scripts. But there are limitations as listed below:

  • You need to use Selenium 3.2.0
  • Supported browsers are Firefox 52 and Chrome 56.
  • It is possible to run Selenium tests only on cloud-based load generators, but not on the private cloud.

Regions

In StormRunner 2.4, London region is supported. Canada Central region is in beta.
