While cloud testing may not be the most thrilling topic in the Web industry right now, there is no doubt that as the cloud continues to pervade the 'Net landscape, it will take on a much loftier status.
So it's a big deal that CloudTest, a solution from SOASTA, is going to be the first mobile and Web performance testing service in CloudForge, the new hybrid cloud development platform from CollabNet. Developers on the CloudForge development-platform-as-a-service (dPaaS) will now have access to CloudTest products and services to help evaluate their projects and deliver faster results.
SOASTA's CloudTest provides fast, functional test automation and performance testing with critical integration, ultimately expediting the creation and time-to-results process for developers from the beginning of the project through its live production.
Existing integration with Continuous Integration servers, like Jenkins and Hudson, as well as monitoring technologies like New Relic, make it easy for developers to immediately start building new tests to assure the highest coverage and deepest performance diagnostics.
Thus, it is a perfect fit for CloudForge, the industry's first enterprise-level dPaaS solution. CloudForge will give users codes for repository hosting, access to both hosted and third-party Agile tools and will help facilitate application deployment in public and private clouds. Ultimately, the hybrid technology enables developers to lever Agile processes, and provides enterprises with a centralized view of their company's productivity, cost management and compliance.
CloudTest is already available for CollabNet users as a free download in the App Center.
