Mountain View, CA (PRWEB) March 17, 2010
SOASTA (http://www.soasta.com), the leader in cloud testing, and Enomaly, a global leader in cloud computing, today announced that they have teamed up to validate that cloud service providers can deliver the demanding SLAs increasingly required by their customers using Enomaly’s Elastic Computing Platform (ECP). ECP’s carrier-class architecture supports very large cloud platforms, spanning multiple datacenters in disparate geographies. SOASTA's CloudTest® methodology helps ensure that customers achieve high performance from their cloud infrastructure.
Enomaly's Elastic Computing Platform is the answer for service providers that want to leverage the power, flexibility and compelling economics of cloud computing. As performance is one of the most common concerns when leveraging cloud infrastructure, SOASTA and Enomaly have validated that ECP can scale to meet the needs of Enomaly’s largest customers, and are working together to ensure that ECP continues to perform optimally as service providers scale the platform.
In addition to the platform, the hardware used by the individual service provider and the applications they host can have a significant impact on performance. SOASTA is also providing its CloudTest service to Enomaly service providers so they, in turn, can build a high level of confidence in their customers’ website performance. This is particularly important as companies are increasingly responding to unexpected peaks that come from the impact of social networking, external events and promotions. Companies must accurately test dynamic applications at web-scale, often running in complex infrastructures.
“This partnership with SOASTA helps Enomaly customers understand performance at a much deeper level”, says Reuven Cohen, CEO, Enomaly. “Without the facts, the reliability and responsiveness of your website is left to chance. SOASTA CloudTest delivers a rich set of actionable performance data so our customers can be confident in their application running on ECP.”
“Performance matters. Websites have become the face to the consumer for many companies and a slow down or crash has real economic impact,” said Tom Lounibos, CEO, SOASTA. “Deploying to the cloud can feel like a loss of control. We’re pleased to see Enomaly’s focus on performance to provide confidence that ECP can reliably deliver massive scale to their customers.”
The SOASTA Performance Test Methodology is an infrastructure and software performance testing strategy with a set of lightweight processes that fit into the software development lifecycle and ensure that online applications are ready for peak usage. The methodology includes testing applications in a lab environment inside of the firewall and processes for testing the production infrastructure used by customers. In addition to testing for baseline performance metrics, the methodology includes failure, duration, spike and break-point testing. It covers standard development lifecycle steps, from requirements gathering through to delivery, with ongoing measurement through iterative cycles.
A proven cloud computing technology platform, Enomaly’s Elastic Computing Platform (ECP) and High Assurance Edition provide a strong platform with which service providers can deliver cloud services to their customers. Simple and easy to use by end-users, Enomaly provides a feature rich, customizable platform that will enable its Service Provider customers to gain competitive advantage in this fast moving market.
