Cloud Computing's 'Killer App': Load and Performance Testing

SOASTA CloudTest Lab Turn Cloud Computing Environments into Virtual Test Labs

SOASTA announced SOASTA CloudTest Lab. A Web testing solution built on the cloud to enable application testing in the cloud, SOASTA CloudTest Lab allows developers to turn any cloud computing environment into a Virtual Test Lab for load and performance testing of their applications.

SOASTA CloudTest Lab provides engineers with a 24x7x365 Web application test lab at their fingertips. The combination of a scalable hardware architecture with leading-edge Web testing technology enables the testing of every layer of a Web application or service. It delivers immediate value, scales seamlessly up or down with testing needs, and does not require investment in a cost prohibitive testing infrastructure. SOASTA CloudTest Lab natively supports every testing type including Load, Performance, Functional, and Web UI/AJAX.

"Load and performance testing is the 'killer application' for cloud computing," said Tom Lounibos, CEO of SOASTA. "Companies can very easily create a real-world test environment without having to invest in it. Developers have virtually unlimited and affordable access to thousands of servers, memory, storage, etc. and can, essentially on demand, simulate load and performance tests for tens of thousands of users without having to purchase the hardware."

Why SOASTA CloudTest Lab is different:

  • It's Real World: Load and performance testing in cloud computing environments is the closest thing to running an application in production minus the worry of negatively impacting your customers. SOASTA CloudTest Lab provides you with a controlled environment to thoroughly simulate and stage a real world scenario before it goes into production.
  • It's On Demand: No more costly investment in new hardware or worries about staffing up for support and management. Ready when you are, SOASTA CloudTest Lab serves as a virtual test lab at your service 24x7x365 and has you testing in a matter of minutes.
  • It's Scalable: An overloaded Web site is a major problem. Being prepared and understanding the limits of your application is crucial to maintaining availability and a quality customer experience. SOASTA CloudTest Lab allows you instant access to up to 1,000 available test servers when needed, and the ability to shut them down when unused to reduce costs. In short, you pay only for what you need. Find out, without the cost and time of setting up and tearing down hundreds if not thousands of servers, whether or not your Web application can scale exponentially at a moment's notice.
  • It's Affordable: Load and performance testing is no longer cost prohibitive. A capability that would typically cost hundreds of thousands of dollars is now available to companies of all sizes in a matter of minutes for only a few hundred dollars.
