Isomorphic and SOASTA Partner to Deliver Robust AJAX RIA Load Testing in the Cloud and the Enterprise

SmartClient Developers Can Now Stress-Test Applications on Hundreds of Servers for a Remarkably Low Cost; Firewalled Appliance Options Also Available

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 08/21/08 -- Isomorphic Software and SOASTA announced a partnership that will give AJAX developers the unprecedented ability to conduct in-cloud performance and scalability testing of applications built on the SmartClient AJAX RIA Platform for just a few hundred dollars.

Isomorphic's SmartClient has been deployed across the globe, powering many of the most sophisticated enterprise RIAs ever created. A new, jointly-developed technology for testing of SmartClient applications allows the creation of robust test suites via an easy-to-use record-and-playback mechanism.

"Most testing tools in use today pre-date the emergence of AJAX, and when faced with an advanced AJAX technology, they create fragile tests that don't work cross-browser and break when minor changes are made," said Charles Kendrick, CTO of Isomorphic Software. "SOASTA and Isomorphic have created a bridge between CloudTest and SmartClient that creates extremely robust tests, so you can invest in a comprehensive test suite with confidence."

SOASTA provides on-demand and appliance-based solutions that enable developers to quickly build highly scalable, real-world functional and load tests -- ensuring faster, more scalable and reliable web applications and services.

Recorded tests can be scaled up to hundreds of servers and tens of thousand of users via a simple, drag-and-drop user interface.

"CloudTest provides a very easy, inexpensive path to load testing. Using CloudTest, developers can demonstrate the performance and scalability benefits that SmartClient delivers," said Tom Lounibos, CEO of SOASTA. "If you'd like to do load testing but don't think you have the time or resources, you need to look into this solution."


SOASTA, Inc. (pronounced so'-sta), is the leading provider of cloud-based testing solutions. SOASTA's mission is to ensure that today's Web applications and services perform in a high quality, scalable, and predictable manner. The company's product, SOASTA CloudTest(TM), is available as an on demand virtual test lab in the cloud or as an appliance (virtual or hardware), and enables developers to test and monitor their Web applications and services at an affordable price. SOASTA CloudTest supports Load, Performance, Functional, and Web UI/Ajax testing. SOASTA is privately held and headquartered in Mountain View, California.
