HP LoadRunner 12.0: A First Look

The latest version of standalone LoadRunner (12.0) was released by HP on March 17th. With this latest release comes some significant changes over the prior 11.52 release, but not the wholesale type of changes that were present when upgrading from 11 to 11.50. If you’re wondering whether or not it makes sense to leap to version 12.0, I’ll try to highlight some main points of the release in this blog article as well as give you some initial snapshots at the interface.

By 2017 Half of the World’s Data will be Stored in Hadoop

Half the world’s data, that is hard to imagine, let alone store.

By now, certainly if you are in the IT industry, you have heard all about Big Data…and maybe even know what Hadoop is and isn’t. One reason the title of this blog could turn out to be accurate, is that half the world’s data will be from Facebook, Yahoo, and Google. Let’s not forget online video providers; because of the nature of their data, Hadoop and NoSQL solutions are the only technologies (today) that can meet their business needs.
