CA Technologies on Tuesday said that it has acquired BlazeMeter, which specializes in open source application performance testing.

The deal expands CA's DevOps portfolio and application delivery tools.

Terms of the deal, which will close by year end, weren't disclosed.

BlazeMeter's open source tools will be used to better link CA's technology with developers. BlazeMeter is compatible with Apache JMeter and open source software including Locust and Selenium. BlazeMeter customers include the Gap, NBCUniversal, and Adobe.

As for pricing, BlazeMeter is free for up to 50 concurrent users and 10 tests. For $99, there's a basic subscription for 1,000 concurrent users and 200 tests a year. A pro version is $499 and there are enterprise licenses.

Alon Girmonsky, CEO of BlazeMeter, said in a blog post that it was the right time to join CA so it can continue to scale. BlazeMeter has more than 60 employees evenly split between offices in Palo Alto, Calif., and Tel Aviv, Israel.
