Skytap Helps Power Orasi’s New Application In The Cloud With HP

CloudPerform Solution Leverages Industry’s Leading Hybrid Cloud to Accelerate Performance Testing

SEATTLE, Wash. – February 7, 2012 – Skytap Inc., the leading provider of self-service cloud automation solutions, today announced that it was selected by Orasi Software, Inc., a leading services provider, to power its new Orasi CloudPerform solution. The offering combines HP LoadRunner software with the Skytap Cloud to facilitate load and performance testing for a broad range of applications commonly used on the web.

Application development and testing teams are under constant pressure to deliver high quality software on time and on budget. To meet these demands, many are looking to the cloud for instant access to scalable and dynamic IT environments. Skytap is a perfect fit for advanced load tests as it provides elastic environments for load generation. With CloudPerform, users can quickly generate large loads that simulate systems with hundreds of concurrent users. CloudPerform eliminates the complexity and expense of building specialized test environments and makes the HP LoadRunner application available to users via an on-demand cloud environment and in as little as 24-hour licensed increments.

With over one million virtual machines (VMs) launched by customers using its cloud service, Skytap is consistently recognized as the leading cloud solution for application development and testing. CloudPerform users benefit from Skytap’s on-demand, self-service and scalable cloud infrastructure, as well as industry-leading visibility and control features for management of complex testing environments. To enable collaboration between dispersed test teams, Skytap provides the ability to instantly duplicate complete virtual data centers, and snapshot and share entire configurations for deeper inspection.

Partnering with Skytap allows us to provide a simple, self-service, and solution-oriented cloud environment to our customers,” said Caleb Billingsley, AVP Performance Technology, Orasi. “Skytap was a natural fit for our solution given the company’s longstanding leadership in the application development and testing market. By combining the power of Skytap Cloud and HP LoadRunner, we’re helping customers produce higher quality software in less time.”

Cloud computing has quickly evolved from commodity Infrastructure-as-a-Service offerings to value-added solutions which instantly solve real business and technical problems,” said Scott Roza, CEO of Skytap. “Orasi’s CloudPerform offering is a compelling example of how Skytap can serve as a dynamic and flexible platform for broader solutions, and we’ll continue to look at ways companies can leverage our service to deliver similar offerings.”

Orasi has provided a complete self-service portal that allows users to sign up with just a credit card and is available for load testing in under an hour. Support for CloudPerform will be provided through Orasi’s premier software support organization, and includes a stand-alone Knowledge Base available at supportweb.orasi.com. Users can submit support tickets at http://supportweb.orasi.com or use the free forums at http://www.eyeontesting.com.
