The NeoLoad Cloud Test Solution Gains Momentum


Adds Rackspace Hosting as its Newest Cloud Provider

Boston – June 27, 2011 – Neotys, a leader in easy-to-use, cost effective load testing tools for web applications, announced today it has added Rackspace Hosting as a cloud provider; Rackspace joins the group of hosting providers already accessed by customers including Amazon Web Services.

Rackspace Hosting is the world’s leading specialist in the hosting and cloud computing industry, and a founder of OpenStack™, an open source cloud operating system and global development community with more than 75 participating organizations.

By using Rackspace Hosting as a cloud hosting solution, Neotys offers even more geographical locations for NeoLoad testers to access from the cloud. The NeoLoad Cloud Testing solution integrates on-demand cloud load generation from the Neotys Cloud Platform into NeoLoad, providing an easy-to-use and affordable way to leverage the benefits of using the cloud in load testing campaigns. It is designed for organizations that need to execute high-volume load tests but may not have the necessary infrastructure and/or time to requisition and configure internal servers. It is also ideal for applications that have users in multiple geographies as the NeoLoad Cloud Testing solution enables testing of the entire application delivery chain from the network to the various geographical regions of the users.

The NeoLoad Cloud Testing Solution is seamless and includes:

  • NeoLoad software licenses: either on a purchase or lease basis, so that users can design and run test scenarios – with infinite scalability from the cloud.
  • Automatic provisioning: Provides on-demand access from the NeoLoad UI to the Neotys Cloud Platform online in any geography. The Neotys Cloud Platform handles all necessary services to set up and execute tests from the cloud.
  • Hybrid testing: Tests can be run with hardware that resides on-premise, in the cloud or both as user needs dictate.
  • Consulting: As required, Neotys experts can be on-hand to define test objectives, prepare scenarios, provide real-time assistance with running tests, analyze results or advise on optimization measures.

According to Russell Clark, cloud specialist, Rackspace Hosting, “We are thrilled that the Neotys Cloud Platform has integrated our cloud hosting solution. We are impressed with Neotys‘ tight integration with our systems.”

“By utilizing cloud providers like Rackspace, we are able to offer an easy, low cost and robust load testing solution that can be accessed in virtually any geographical location that is important to our customers,“ said Thibaud Bussière, president, Neotys.
