Software Testing Leaders Collaborate to Bring the Crowd into the Cloud

Partnership enables the two firms to work closely together in multiple ways

Early Bird for Cloud Expo Santa Clara!

At the 5th Cloud Expo held at the Javits Center in NYC, April 19-21, SOASTA, a provider of cloud testing, and uTest, a software testing marketplace, announced a partnership to leverage their respective on-demand offerings to help customers deliver the best possible website user experience to their visitors. This partnership enables the two firms to work closely together in multiple ways.

Both firms will offer a new approach for load and performance testing by combining SOASTA's cloud-based, distributed architecture with the uTest community of 25,000+ professional testers. The two companies are leveraging their innovations to offer customers the richest and most complete set of Business Intelligence tools available for performance engineers.

SOASTA CloudTest enables the simulation of up to millions of users by leveraging the SOASTA Global Test Cloud, which can be deployed in minutes, to stress the infrastructure of a website or web application. uTest's Live Load Testing services add a team of live testers from around the globe that can perform functional testing while an application is under synthetic load. This enables customers to:

  • Measure the performance impact on live end users, and
  • Test the functionality of an application to reveal defects during peak usage conditions

These combined data sources are loaded into SOASTA's data warehouse through an extraction layer and pulled into the CloudTest real-time OLAP engine. Performance engineers can view real-time, dynamic dashboards that provide actionable information while a test is running. This results in a clear understanding of how a web app performs under real-world conditions, and identification of bottlenecks and potential areas of stress. The metrics are derived by reaching behind the firewall to monitor the application, databases, web servers, load balancers and firewalls, all the way to the actual end user experience. And all of this diverse data is correlated in easy to understand, multi-dimensional charts and graphs.

This partnership also enables uTest to add CloudTest to their load testing offering, providing a logical extension to their existing load testing services. uTest provides a one-stop shop for testing - from on-demand functional testing to extremely high-scale load and performance testing services. Additionally, SOASTA can now provide their customers with access to functional testing services from the world's largest community of professional testers.

"With SOASTA CloudTest we focus on results: actionable performance intelligence to quickly identify anything that might impact web performance," said Tom Lounibos, CEO, SOASTA. "Our on-demand approach is a perfect match with uTest. We both enable our customers to buy precisely what they need, when they need it, for an affordable, agile and scalable solution."

"As our customers have grown in maturity and technical sophistication, so too have their requests for high-traffic load and performance testing services," said uTest CEO, Doron Reuveni. "This partnership with SOASTA enables us to extend our current testing solutions and better meet the needs of our diverse base of customers."
