SOASTA announced at today’s VMware Cloud Foundry event that CloudTest is now available as a service of Cloud Foundry. CloudTest is the first and only test automation service available to the expanding Cloud Foundry ecosystem, and the first time a free CloudTest version has been made available to any user as a fully cloud-hosted service.  Now application developers can seamlessly implement rapid test creation and real-time issue resolution when they utilize or any Cloud Foundry-based service to build and deploy apps that scale in any cloud.
“SOASTA’s CloudTest removes the hassles of test automation so developers and testers can match the speed of change in the web and mobile market,” said Tom Lounibos, SOASTA CEO. “Developers have an appetite for VMware’s innovative Cloud Foundry platform as a service because of its proven agility, ease and affordability, and CloudTest mimics that experience. Onlytesting can assure the app behaves the way it is meant to, and for that reason I expect testing to be embraced by all DevOps platforms. The future is dev-test-ops.”
The speed of continuous delivery requires that Web and Mobile application developers validate user functionality, scale and capacity in every piece of code.  Implementing automation to check their progress is theonly way to keep up. Now, every Cloud Foundry user can utilize SOASTA’s enterprise proven CloudTest platform for their personal access.  Without any download, installation or resource sharing, developers can stay 100% focused on building and validating code without test hardware or compute resource constraints. With CloudTest on Cloud Foundry, developers can deliver better performing cloud applications, faster.
“Cloud Foundry has collected the best industry solutions that meet our standards of “Core Compatible” services for the growing and selective community of developers,” said Jerry Chen, vice president of cloud and application services, VMware. “Testing is critical for every application, and we’re delighted to work with cloud testing pioneer SOASTA to bring cloud test capabilities to Cloud Foundry developers.”
