  2. 2. Performance testing on Ravello with HP LoadRunner (target application) www.ravellosystems.com 2 • Setup your ‘application under test’ environment on Ravello. • Same VMs, same networking as on premise – no changes whatsoever • Run the application instance on public cloud. • Execute load test from windows load generator application in Ravello. • Save the state of the application instance under duress as a blueprint -> create an instance from this blueprint-> troubleshoot the problem. • Save the application environment as a Gold Blueprint -> Add components, fix bugs, make changes -> create another application instance from the updated copy -> execute load test again.
