It doesn’t have to be StormRunner specific. There should be SaaS option. Check it out with your local HPE rep.

Yes its a SAAS offering you pay for monthly. Its a fine tool.
There are also many other options which might be less expensive or offer other features as well. It's always good to shop around.

Not sure what you mean by “as a service”; do you mean saas? If yes, that is exactly how it works. The load generators are hosted by Amazon, HP or Microsoft. It is also possible to setup load testing hosts in house and use them in your load test. Pricing information as well as tool purchase is online If you cannot purchase online using a credit card, you can contact a HPE Vendor such as Avnet ( with pertinent details of how many VU hours you require so that they are able to provide a quote and you can go through with a PO. Be sure to calculate VU hours (number of tests X duration of each test X number of virtual users) You will also need to know the type of VU (Web TruClient or Developer) Web TC will enable you to use the latest 12.53 TruClient protocol as well as standard http/html.

Hope this information helps.
