Service Virtualization-why

Service Virtualization

Application and data simulation software that enables development and testing teams to simulate a service’s behavior without impacting delivery regardless of access to production systems.

Key Features

Design Studio

Easily create simulations of application behavior. With application virtualization solutions you can keep to your development and testing schedule even when you can’t develop or test the real versions of applications, dependent systems, and services.

Wizard-Built Models

Model the functional network and performance behavior of your virtual services by using step-by-step wizards. No need for expert developers or coding to create virtual versions of services that behave just as they would in production.

Support for Multiple Technologies

Virtualize what matters: Create simulations incorporating a wide array of message formats, transport types, and even ERP application protocols to test everything from the latest web service to a legacy system.

Dynamic Changes

Modify data, network, and performance models easily. You don’t need to reprogram to accommodate changes in test conditions and performance needs.

Web-Based Management Interface

Manage from anywhere with support for user roles, profiles, and access control lists. Publish virtual versions of real application components and services on a shareable platform for use across teams.

Integration into HPE Testing Solutions

Easily configure and use virtual services in your daily testing practices. Service Virtualization features fully integrate into LoadRunner, Performance Center, ALM, and Unified Functional Testing.

  • Manage your virtual services with easy updates on who is using each one, when it is being used, and its service health by using an intuitive web dashboard.

  • Record (learn) a simulation easily in the Service Virtualization Designer (IDE) and then apply modeling parameters to the virtual service behavior for performance and data model.

  • With HPE application virtualization solutions you can model network as well as app performance by integrating Network Virtualization with Service Virtualization.

  • Virtualize performance of batch processing transactions to help you test ERP applications.
