Free app testing set for Ruby on Rails

FiveRuns and Morph Labs are partnering to provide free application performance testing for RoR applications.

FiveRuns and Morph Labs on Tuesday announced they are partnering to provide free application performance testing for Ruby on Rails applications, with the goal of bolstering applications running in the cloud.

The companies will run the FiveRuns TuneUp application profiling tool on the Morph AppSpace platform-as-a-service offering for Web applications. Also part of the plan is FiveRuns Manage, for monitoring the performance and availability of Rails applications. Developers gain insight in application performance and can make decisions on code optimization via a managed hosting platform.

"Our goal is to provide a forum for focused collaboration to solve interesting and difficult performance problems. TuneUp gives developers deep visibility and relevant information to debug and improve the performance of their application and a community setting to collaborate with others to solve tough problems," said Steve Sanderson, vice president of development and Technology at FiveRuns, in a statement released by the company.

Morph uses virtual infrastructure to provide an environment for Web applications that can be provisioned and scaled.

Developers can subscribe to Morph AppSpace for free and select the version that integrates FiveRuns TuneUp. They also can participate in a secure group or open community to share performance information and advice.

FiveRuns Manage will be offered as a fee-based production option for Morp AppSpace and will enable monitoring of the health of applications within an AppSpace subscription. This integration between Manage and AppSpace is expected to be available in the fourth quarter of this year. FiveRuns Manage costs about $40 per managed server per month.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
