Keynote: Flying KITE in the Cloud
Keynote Systems launches a new version of its Keynote Internet Testing Environment to test Web application performance from the desktop and the Internet cloud.As application developers move from building applications to run on their organization's own servers to writing applications for the cloud, there is more need for the services of a company like Keynote Systems and a tool like the Keynote Internet Testing Environment, or KITE. Keynote officials say their new tool makes performance testing of Web 2.0 applications across the Internet cloud as easy as flying a kite. The maker of on-demand mobile and Internet test and measurement solutions announced KITE 2.0 at the O'Reilly Velocity Web performance and operations conference June 23 in Burlingame, Calif.
Vik Chaudhary, vice president of product management and corporate development at Keynote, described KITE 2.0 as a new desktop-based test-and-measurement environment for recording, editing and analyzing the performance of Web applications from the desktop and Internet cloud that will bridge the gap between Web application developers, quality assurance teams, performance analysts and Web operations by providing them with a common, easy to use test script language and repository.
