SOASTA Performs 500th Test in the Cloud

Leader in Cloud Testing Repeatedly Brings the Power of the Cloud to Customers Who Demand Accurate Analysis of Web Reliability and Performance

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/27/09 -- SOASTA, the leader in cloud testing, today announced the completion of its 500th CloudTest(TM), affirming that customers are leveraging the Cloud as both a destination for their applications and as an affordable, scalable platform for testing. With over 6,500 testing hours in the Cloud simulating over 50 million global virtual users against real world usage scenarios, SOASTA has helped customers determine application reliability across a variety of market segments.

SOASTA has delivered CloudTest On-Demand services for hundreds of Web applications from a wide variety of industries such as consumer products, mobile, social networking, and financial services. Customers include Hallmark, Genentech, Marvel Entertainment, Chegg.com, Proctor & Gamble, Qtrax, and Pelago -- all seeking ways to ensure Web application performance through cloud testing.

"There was no way we could ever have simulated 500,000 users against our site in an internal test lab," said Christopher Roe, CTO, Qtrax. "By cloud testing we were able to identify connection issues immediately and fix the site prior to production."

"Cloud testing is proving very popular for companies who demand higher levels of reliability from their Web applications and networks," said Tom Lounibos, CEO, SOASTA. "Whether their application is deployed in the Cloud or behind the firewall, customers are seeing that cloud testing enables the most comprehensive analysis of how Web applications will perform in production before going live."

SOASTA's CloudTest On-Demand services leverage the Cloud to assure and tune Web performance and reliability through accurate, realistic load tests simulating tens to millions of users accessing your Web application. As a full service solution, customers simply provide user scenarios and test criteria, and SOASTA's cloud testing experts build the tests, provision the complete cloud environment, execute the tests and work with customers in real-time to analyze, fix and tune their Web applications.
