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."

How CloudTest On-Demand Works

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.

Most DevOps journeys involve several phases of maturity. Research shows that the inflection point where organizations begin to see maximum value is when they implement tight integration deploying their code to their infrastructure. Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage, for instance, is more capable than where we read and write data. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Atwell, a Developer Advocate for NetApp, will discuss the role and value...
SYS-CON Events announced today that DatacenterDynamics has been named “Media Sponsor” of SYS-CON's 18th International Cloud Expo, which will take place on June 7–9, 2016, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY. DatacenterDynamics is a brand of DCD Group, a global B2B media and publishing company that develops products to help senior professionals in the world's most ICT dependent organizations make risk-based infrastructure and capacity decisions.

DevOpsSummit New York 2018, colocated with CloudEXPO | DXWorldEXPO New York 2018 will be held November 11-13, 2018, in New York City. Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with the introduction of DXWorldEXPO within the program. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term.
Consumer-driven contracts are an essential part of a mature microservice testing portfolio enabling independent service deployments. In this presentation we'll provide an overview of the tools, patterns and pain points we've seen when implementing contract testing in large development organizations.
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
In his general session at 19th Cloud Expo, Manish Dixit, VP of Product and Engineering at Dice, discussed how Dice leverages data insights and tools to help both tech professionals and recruiters better understand how skills relate to each other and which skills are in high demand using interactive visualizations and salary indicator tools to maximize earning potential. Manish Dixit is VP of Product and Engineering at Dice. As the leader of the Product, Engineering and Data Sciences team at D...
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the bene...
In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Scott Davis, CTO of Embotics, discussed how automation can provide the dynamic management required to cost-effectively deliver microservices and container solutions at scale. He also discussed how flexible automation is the key to effectively bridging and seamlessly coordinating both IT and developer needs for component orchestration across disparate clouds – an increasingly important requirement at today’s multi-cloud enterprise.
"We do one of the best file systems in the world. We learned how to deal with Big Data many years ago and we implemented this knowledge into our software," explained Jakub Ratajczak, Business Development Manager at MooseFS, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
