webappVM and SOASTA to Bring Reliability to Cloud Computing

Enterprises can now easily deploy, test and manage web applications in the cloud

SOASTA CloudTest at Cloud Expo

webappVM cloud application management platform announced on Wednesday it is collaborating with SOASTA, the leader in cloud testing, to empower developers to rapidly onboard applications to the cloud and get those applications tested and ready for production.

The unique solution will enable developers to accelerate applications from development to production with confidence they will perform as planned.

Cloud computing adds a new layer of complexity for enterprise web applications. Deploying to the cloud and having visibility of the infrastructure and connected components within the cloud is difficult, if not impossible.

The importance of performance testing and ongoing monitoring is even more critical to deliver reliable web applications that provide business value. webappVM and SOASTA are making it easy for developers to test and monitor web applications in the cloud to ensure ongoing application performance.

"Application management has not caught up with cloud computing, forcing enterprises to use outdated, agent-based methods in the new world of virtualization. This is keeping companies from realizing the full benefits of running applications in a cloud environment," said Issac Roth, CEO of webappVM. "We're happy to work with SOASTA to provide developers a platform on which they can test and monitor their web apps in the cloud."

webappVM makes it easy to deploy applications to the cloud and gives IT the necessary management to ensure applications are running properly when pushed to production. The company is pioneering a new approach to application management that works as part of the underlying platform with all management and monitoring built into the virtual layer. This new approach will enable organizations to have confidence when taking advantage of the flexibility, portability and reduced administrative costs of cloud computing for enterprise applications. webappVM's management features are precisely dialed-in for the needs of web application developers.

"While there are many point testing and application management tools on the market today, they can be too complex and expensive. Until now, there has been no quick and easy way to test the scalability of your web apps in the cloud," said Tom Lounibos, CEO of Soasta. "The combination of webappVM's easy onboarding of applications to cloud environments and Soasta's testing platform is sure to accelerate deployment of enterprise applications."
