Armada and SOASTA Team Up to Validate Cloud Computing Environments

Companies certify web applications meet performance standards of enterprise customers

Armada and SOASTA announced on Thursday that they have teamed up to validate that cloud environments built by Armada can meet demanding SLAs for business-critical applications. Armada and SOASTA are working together to certify that projects meet or exceed the performance demands of customers deploying key applications onto cloud platforms.

"Armada develops private, public and hybrid cloud computing environments for leading enterprise companies. These clients want to ensure their mission-critical business applications and infrastructure will perform and scale in the cloud as well or better than in a conventional computing environment," said Jeff Tavangar, President, The Armada Group. "SOASTA's CloudTest enables Armada to benchmark and validate that our deployments perform better than customers' existing implementations."

The two companies also are working together to ensure that Armada-developed cloud computing solutions running on Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and other cloud platforms perform optimally even when usage spikes under peak traffic loads.

"Cloud computing provides compelling economies of scale for many companies, yet poor performance in any environment directly impacts the bottom line," said Tom Lounibos, CEO, SOASTA. "We're pleased to team up with Armada to provide confidence that cloud computing environments can reliably deliver top performance and massive scale to Armada's customers."

SOASTA's Performance Test Methodology is an infrastructure and software performance testing approach that includes testing applications in a lab environment inside of the firewall with a particular focus on testing the production infrastructure at web-scale. Supported by CloudTest Analytics, the first real-time Business Intelligence engine purpose-built for performance management, the methodology is comprised of a set of lightweight processes that fit into an iterative software development lifecycle and ensure that online applications are ready for peak usage.

Armada delivers highly customizable cloud computing solutions that combine discovery, prototyping, test and deployment in rich and extensible environments for scaling any business application into the cloud.
