CSC & SOASTA Announce Performance Testing Within Trusted Cloud Services

Global Agreement Supports Improved Web Performance and Reliability

CSC has announced with SOASTA that it will integrate SOASTA CloudTest into CSC's Trusted Cloud Services and testing and development methodology.

SOASTA CloudTest provides load and performance testing solutions to ensure Web applications and services perform in a highly reliable, scalable and predictable manner. CSC offers Independent Testing and Validation Services across industry verticals, leveraging its deep domain expertise, global delivery capability and comprehensive portfolio of testing services. CSC also provides "Testing as a Service" (TaaS) within its Trusted Cloud Services offering. Testing as a Service is available on-demand in public, private and hybrid cloud networks to meet customers' business requirements, security needs and regulatory standards.

"Website performance impacts any enterprise that is marketing, selling or processing business using the Web, and yet most companies do not test for web application reliability and examples of performance issues abound," said Ben Pring, Research VP, Gartner. "It has been cost-prohibitive to simulate real world traffic using traditional testing methods. With cloud-based testing, enterprises of all sizes can now affordably test to identify performance issues and validate website reliability."

By combining CSC's global testing services capabilities with SOASTA's leading cloud testing solution, CSC provides a complete set of testing and accreditation services to all customers globally. The offering will focus on new cloud computing and Web projects as well as provide existing managed services customers with a new level of performance and reliability not previously possible due to hardware, software and human resource limitations.

Customers will also benefit from:

  • Unmatched scalability to easily test at or above peak expected traffic
  • Analytics to manage massive amounts of data and address issues in real time
  • An affordable alternative to traditional performance testing
  • Best practices in consulting and automation services across functional and performance testing
  • CSC Global Testing Center of Excellence that provides best-in-class cross-industry testing solutions

Web application Performance Testing in CSCs Trusted Cloud uses SOASTA CloudTest to leverage the elasticity of the cloud to provide an accurate representation of real-world Web traffic and usage. The CloudTest appliance is ideal for creating and executing tests in-house, behind the firewall. Tests executed in-house can then be rapidly reused for testing from the cloud. Web Performance Testing is available on a pay-per-use basis.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
