CloudTest Lite Removes Barriers to Performance Testing Web and Mobile Applications at Any Stage to Reduce the Risk of Costly Downtime.
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. – July 19, 2011
, the leader in cloud-based performance testing
, today launched CloudTest® Lite
, an important new edition of SOASTA’s award-winning CloudTest Platform. Available as free downloadable software, CloudTest Lite removes the barriers to performance testing Web and mobile applications at any stage in the development lifecycle. This free, enterprise-grade solution gives developers and testing professionals the flexibility to performance test applications from the beginning, reducing the risk of damaged brand image or lost revenue resulting from poor application performance.
“CloudTest Lite eliminates the barriers to conducting critical performance testing of Web and mobile applications,” said Tom Lounibos, CEO at SOASTA. “Now, for the first time, developers and seasoned testers alike can test application performance at low levels throughout the development lifecycle and identify issues early to lower costs, get to market faster, and reduce the risk of poor customer experience.
“Especially today, no Web or mobile application can have slow response or downtime without serious risk. Through performance testing from the earliest stages of development, CloudTest Lite helps ensure that apps can handle anticipated traffic with ease.”
SOASTA’s CloudTest is the world’s largest platform for testing the performance of Web and mobile applications at scale. CloudTest’s patented visual test creation, automated test server provisioning, and real-time resolution allow testing teams to execute performance tests with unparalleled speed and agility, whether testing internally or from the cloud.
CloudTest Lite is the newest member of SOASTA’s growing line of CloudTest editions. It is an enterprise-class offering that enables rapid test creation and real-time resolution for performance testing early and often throughout the development lifecycle. Delivering internal testing behind the firewall on a single server, customers can execute performance tests of up to 100 concurrent virtual users in development, QA, staging or production. With CloudTest Lite, customers can:
- Test Web and mobile applications, including applications using the latest technologies from HTML5 to REST Web services
- Quickly build tests with visual test creation tools
- Integrate application, system, and network monitoring data
- Analyze results in real-time through an interactive, integrated dashboard
- Easily upgrade to a more scalable CloudTest edition to meet expanding testing requirements
“When it comes to performance testing, too many organizations report not testing regularly or well, and some report not testing at all. The commercial tools they need are too expensive and open source options lack sufficient features, training, and support,” states Scott Barber, founder and CTO of PerfTestPlus. “With SOASTA’s CloudTest Lite, now every web performance tester can design, implement, execute, and analyze performance tests every day with a product that is easy to learn, yet has the capability to cover complex testing requirements. CloudTest Lite is a game changer.”
SOASTA Launches Performance Testing Community Website: CloudLink
In addition to CloudTest Lite, SOASTA today also unveiled CloudLink
, an online resource designed to support the entire SOASTA community, including new CloudTest Lite users and partners. At CloudLink, SOASTA CloudTest customers and partners can participate in discussion forums and access a rich library of content for training and support, including access to performance management best practices and SOASTA’s proven methodology for performance testing from lab through production.
