PC12.60 looks like ALM Octane!
I just did install the new #PerformanceCenter 12.60 server and was surprised by the new look and feel: It is now a pure HTML5 web frontend and looks like #ALM #Octane!!!
You can now define recurrent timeslots for your performance tests if you e.g. want to run performance tests on a weekly or daily (nightly) basis.

You can simply register for a trial and will have your own trial version available within minutes. With StormRunner Load there is nothing you need to install, maybe a scripting environment, if you want.
PS: The screenshots are actually from Performance Center 12.61 release. I also did install Patch 1 for Performance Center 12.60. If you install this patch your Performance Center will show up as “Performance Center 12.61”.
