SOASTA CloudTest Available on Microsoft Azure and Visual Studio Marketplaces
June 03, 2016

SOASTA announced its expansion of Microsoft support with the availability of its global test platform for cloud and DevOps solutions – SOASTA CloudTest – on the Microsoft Azure Marketplace and the Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS) Marketplace.

“SOASTA has been a great collaborator for us,” said Paul Roy, Principal Development Manager of Performance in Microsoft’s Universal Storefronts division. “SOASTA provides an excellent feature set and strong technical team and is easy and low-cost to integrate.”

Developers using Azure cloud services and Microsoft Visual Studio Online can now take advantage of continuous integration with SOASTA CloudTest, eliminating all necessary manual tasks for testing applications, including those for regression and user experience, reducing the testing process for new app versions by as much as several days.

The expanded relationship brings together two companies dedicated to both the developer community and deployment of cloud applications at scale. Now, the millions of developers who use Azure and Visual Studio Team Services have access to SOASTA’s CloudTest with Azure for easy-to-deploy load testing and integration with Microsoft VSTS.

“SOASTA and Microsoft are two companies that come together naturally through their commitment to DevOps,” said Tom Lounibos, CEO of SOASTA. “CloudTest, with Microsoft Azure, delivers peak customer load to web and mobile channels just as real customers would – from the outside in. Unlike traditional performance testing done in a lab, CloudTest delivers full-scale ‘dress rehearsals’ of peak events, allowing all stakeholders to observe performance at scale in real time, identify problems and resolve them before putting revenue and reputation at risk.”

SOASTA CloudTest on Azure provides:

- Seamless testing in production, at scale, with real-time analytics

- Open source community mindshare with JMeter support

- World-class reporting with easy-to-customize dashboards

- DevOps readiness: first-class Continuous Integration (CI) support

Microsoft users can get SOASTA CloudTest for free in the Azure Marketplace and start testing in minutes. Additionally, they can integrate CloudTest with Visual Studio Team Services in just a few clicks for automated continuous testing.

“SOASTA CloudTest on Microsoft Azure helps developers test applications at scale to ensure peak performance in production, while the integration aids VSTS developers in finding performance issues early in the development process with continuous performance testing,” said Tom Lindeman, Director of Partner and Channel Marketing, Microsoft Corp.
