SOASTA, a provider of cloud-based performance testing, and AppDynamics, a provider of Application Performance Management (APM) solutions, announced the integration of the AppDynamics real-time application monitoring solution with the SOASTA CloudTest Platform.

Available immediately, the solution lets users quickly set up and run full-scale performance tests of production systems using SOASTA with Java and .NET performance analytics collected through AppDynamics.

SOASTA and AppDynamics enable the testing of peak loads in production during off peak hours due to the minimal time required to construct a test and deploy production level monitoring. With SOASTA, operations, development, and testing teams get a single view of the application’s performance, while AppDynamics equips these teams to identify root cause at the code level in about three clicks. Both solutions work in tandem to enable real-time, agile performance testing in production.

“Web application performance can be critical to a business, and the integration of SOASTA CloudTest and AppDynamics’ best-of-breed APM solution gives organizations everything they need to conduct fast, comprehensive real-time tests with visibility into virtually every aspect of the application’s performance,” said Tom Lounibos, SOASTA CEO. “Advanced monitoring and testing tools have previously not been aligned or built for live production testing. SOASTA and AppDynamics are breaking all the old rules with a powerful combined solution built for speed.”

AppDynamics and SOASTA CloudTest can be deployed in minutes, enabling users to quickly run tests and collect metrics at the deepest level in both .NET and Java applications. Users can proactively run full-scale tests in production environments and gain instant and complete visibility into critical business transactions to compare results, establish baselines and continually monitor application performance. The integrated solution helps teams avoid production failures, find issues before they affect real users, leverage the same data for testing and monitoring, and proactively tune system performance.
