SOASTA CloudTest Leverages Rackspace Cloud Servers to Deliver Confidence in the Performance and Reliability of Web Applications

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 08/25/09 -- SOASTA, the leader in cloud testing, today announced support for The Rackspace Cloud and its new strategic partner initiative from Rackspace's cloud computing division to help companies achieve success in the cloud. With this announcement, SOASTA's CloudTest load and performance testing solution is broadly available to Rackspace customers using The Rackspace Cloud and those using the Rackspace Managed Hosting solution.

SOASTA provides load and performance testing solutions to ensure web applications and services perform in a highly reliable, scalable and predictable manner. SOASTA CloudTest is an end-to-end, integrated solution: available as an on-demand cloud service for external, web-scale testing and as an appliance for internal testing behind the firewall. Cloud testing easily enables low cost testing (often on production web systems) at full web-scale, providing the confidence that the web application or site can withstand peaks and surges in traffic. SOASTA CloudTest provides:

--  an integrated solution for internal and external testing
--  the ability to easily test at or above peak expected traffic
--  a modern, intuitive test development environment
--  real time analytics to immediately identify issues
--  an affordable alternative to traditional performance testing

"We're pleased to expand our relationship with Rackspace and to be included as a launch partner in their Cloud Tools ecosystem site," said Tom Lounibos, CEO, SOASTA. "We share Rackspace's commitment to an open cloud where the latest cloud services and tools are readily available to customers building their cloud infrastructure. We believe The Rackspace Cloud is a key environment for enabling web-scale cloud testing in a fraction of the time and cost of traditional vendors."

"During development and deployment of web applications, testing is critical for our customers," said Jim Curry, Vice President of Corporate Development, Rackspace. "We're excited to have SOASTA as a strategic partner in The Rackspace Cloud ecosystem. Their CloudTest On Demand service is built to allow our Cloud Servers users to identify performance issues before they occur by simulating real world traffic and load scenarios. SOASTA's focus on reliability and performance is a perfect complement to Rackspace Fanatical Support®."

SOASTA CloudTest

CloudTest On Demand enables developers and IT managers to minimize the upfront investments and high costs associated with dedicated software and hardware by leveraging the elasticity of the cloud for straightforward or complex test scenarios. It enables load generation from thousands of servers from cloud platforms around the world, providing the most accurate representation of real world web traffic and usage. SOASTA's team of expert performance engineers works with customer teams to create and run the tests, as well as monitor and analyze the results in real time.

The CloudTest Appliance is ideal for creating and executing tests in-house, typically against development and QA environments. Often these tests occur with greater frequency and don't require web-scale loads to accomplish the goals of the test. Tests can be easily shared between the two environments, enabling rapid reuse of scenarios for testing inside the firewall or from the cloud. The appliance is also used for day-to-day functional testing of today's web applications.

Information about SOASTA CloudTest can now be found on Cloud Tools, Rackspace's new online service for sharing tools built by the company's strategic partners and independent developers for The Rackspace Cloud, at http://tools.rackspacecloud.com/applications/soasta-cloudtest-on-demand/.


SOASTA's mission is to ensure that today's Web applications and services perform in a highly reliable, scalable, and predictable manner. The company's product, SOASTA CloudTest(TM), is available as an on-demand service that leverages Cloud networks or as an appliance (virtual and hardware), and enables developers to test and monitor their Web applications and services at an affordable price.
