Cloud Testing Breaks the Price Barrier
Campbell, California (PRWEB) December 11, 2009
PushToTest(tm), the open source application performance management and test automation solutions company, has released a white paper titled "Cloud Testing Breaks the Price Barrier" for application testing in the cloud. The white paper can be downloaded today at http://cloud.pushtotest.com
With today's budget constraints, traditional testing tools have become cost-prohibitive for many organizations who need to scale to millions of users but cannot afford the costs of an internal QA lab, test software, test maintenance and expert consultants.
Cloud Testing, or application testing "in the cloud", has emerged as a ground-breaking solution to this problem by delivering bandwidth and computing power to run tests at user levels never before possible, at commodity prices.
The new white paper includes:
- The Top Costs and Risks to Successful Load Testing
- How to Run Tests from Your QA Lab, From the Cloud, or Both
- The Cloud Testing Checklist for Building a Successful Cloud Testing Strategy
"There is no question that load testing is important for any company with customer-facing applications, however some organizations have been forced to minimize their testing efforts due to budget constraints… which can lead to risks of service outages and disappointed customers, vendors, and employees," said Frank Cohen, CEO and Founder of PushToTest. "The great news is that Cloud Testing offers companies a way to conduct large-scale load tests at prices unheard of just a few years ago."
PushToTest commercial customers already realize cost savings and test
"At Tribal DDB we have cost-conscious clients who demand performance and have high thresholds. You could not call any average load testing company and pull that off. It became cost-prohibitive to our clients," said Alan Rodriguez, Director of Data Center Operations and Testing at Tribal DDB. "PushToTest is capable of going to very high transaction levels at low price rates. We are not covering the capital expenditure of server infrastructure. Unless someone is using a cloud platform, you can't come close to the same transaction level and cost as we did with PushToTest."
