SOASTA Announces OEM Agreement with CA Technologies

SOASTA CloudTest will be integrated into CA Service Virtualization

SOASTA on Tuesday announced that it has entered into a technology and distribution partnership agreement with CA Technologies. The partnership will integrate SOASTA's Cloud based Web testing solution, CloudTest with CA Service Virtualization and CA LISA Test software suites. The solutions will be taken to market by CA Technologies as a new integrated solution, CA LISA Cloud Test, offering web and mobile developers around the world an advanced Global Test Platform. The integrated test platform can simulate any and every possible user scenario that a web site or mobile app may experience all within minutes.

"This is a very strategic partnership for us," said Tom Lounibos, CEO of SOASTA. "To understand what your consumers may experience using your website or mobile app you must be able to simulate and test every possible scenario from back end service through the OS. Up until now, this has been impossible to achieve. This partnership changes everything. Now developers can simulate every possible user experience possible. It gives the development community the most agile, scalable and comprehensive Global Test Platform for developing web and mobile apps."

For web and mobile developers, success is often measured in seconds. The seconds it takes for a consumer to find and perform an activity on an app defines whether they engage or leave. Finding ways of reducing latency requires end-to-end virtualization and simulation technology that allows developers to virtualize back end services then simulate and test millions of global and discrete consumer experiences to better understand what users will actually experience in production.

With CloudTest, developers can now simulate millions of users within minutes and then measure the impact on their existing infrastructure and network elements using CA Service Virtualization to virtualize the back end services so the test can be performed just like using actual production back end services.

CA LISA CloudTest enables developers, QA and IT teams to test websites and mobile applications with speed, scale and precision, at less cost. Users can build, execute, and analyze performance tests to emulate the scale and performance of real users. SOASTA's Global Test Cloud allows customers to scale tests for up to millions of geographically dispersed mobile or web users on any type of load testing requirement.

"CA and SOASTA are aligned in our efforts to provide a solution that compresses critical processes throughout the system development life cycle," said Shridhar Mittal, general manager of Application Delivery, CA Technologies. "The ability to virtualize many web and mobile user experiences with CloudTest enables our customers to increase the value of service virtualization and end-to-end testing from the development lab all the way to production environments."
