SOASTA CloudTest(TM) Adds iPhone(TM) Application Support to Its Load and Performance Testing PlatformLatest Version Assures Reliability as iPhone Applications Exceed 1B Downloads (April 28, 2009)
MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 04/28/09 -- SOASTA, the leader in cloud testing, today announced enhancements to its CloudTest On-Demand services to add iPhone application support to their external load and performance testing platform. iPhone applications exceeded one billion downloads last week, and an increasing number of those are adding user traffic to sites such as financial institutions, Internet retailers, and other Internet accessible businesses. Today's announcement provides organizations that leverage iPhone applications to extend the revenue and business value of their services with the same advanced load testing capabilities SOASTA CloudTest brings to browser-based web site testing.
As the proliferation and usage of iPhone applications grows, companies must understand and account for this additional traffic in order to maintain and continually improve the user experience. The impact of latency or downtime as a result of heavy application usage can lead to user frustration and abandonment. Furthermore, those applications that are a direct extension to a larger, revenue generating business, such as online banking and investment applications, could realize the effects of poor performance at a substantial business risk.
"Business applications today must reach distributed users accessing information from any location and on many devices including the iPhone," said Tom Lounibos, CEO, SOASTA. "Cloud testing is the only way to affordably test large numbers of iPhone and web users at real-world scale, from multiple global locations, at a fraction of the cost of other alternatives."
