Episerver Broadens Everweb Hosting with Cloud-Based Load Testing

Partnership with Apica signals Everweb’s evolution into a single resource for all Episerver web hosting needs.

Chicago, IL – November 30, 2011 Episerver, the world’s fastest growing provider of platforms that drive online engagement, today extends its Everweb offering to provide cloud-based load testing, providing increased online performance for clients and consumers.

By knowing how a website will perform before launch, Everweb clients ensure that site performance meets visitor expectations to boost conversions and achieve business results. In partnership with the market-leading performance testing supplier, Apica, Episerver will begin offering scalable cloud-based load testing packages immediately.

Load testing is an important performance assurance tool used throughout the lifecycle of any website. During initial setup, load testing can pinpoint the right sized infrastructure as well as opportunities for optimization of code and content. When deploying major changes to a website, load testing ensures that new configurations perform under standard loads and identifies for peak loads before going live.

"Episerver customers demand premium site performance because a seamless user experience boosts conversions. We found Apica's capabilities to be a great fit. Many of our largest clients using the service saw immediate improvements with Apica's performance tools," says Bob Egner, Vice President of Global Marketing and Product Management.

Apica is a leading EPiMore Alliance Partner for web performance and load testing. "Apica's knowledge and depth of experience of load testing has helped numerous clients significantly improve the business-critical online systems. We are very pleased to extend our relationship with Episerver's rapidly growing client base."

Episerver's Everweb load testing packages are available immediately for hosting clients at the Enterprise and Dedicated Server levels. To learn more contact everweb@Episerver.com.
