Neotys Uses CloudSigma to Launch Hundreds of Servers in Under 3 Minutes

Zürich, Thursday 1st September 2011CloudSigma AG, a leading provider of powerful cloud servers is pleased to welcome Neotys, an innovative provider of load testing harnessing the elasticity of public clouds for its customers through its NeoLoad cloud testing solution.

Patrick Baillie, CEO of CloudSigma commented ‘I’m delighted to see Neotys really taking advantage of the true scaling capabilities of our cloud in a dramatic way. We also designed our on-demand billing to meet bursty compute such needs so that Neotys has exceptional purchasing efficiency when deploying load tests within our cloud.’

100 servers in under 3 minutes

A critical performance characteristic for NeoLoad is provisioning time. Their customers wish to minimise lag between order time and load testing. CloudSigma worked closely with Neotys to assist them with an optimal implementation that can deliver on this key metric for them with their NeoLoad product.

For example, NeoLoad can now spin up 100s of cloud servers on the CloudSigma cloud for customers in under 3 minutes.

Jonathan Bracken, VP Marketing at Neotys commented “We were pleased with the support we received from CloudSigma both before and after implementation of our NeoLoad Cloud Testing solution within their cloud. The increased provisioning efficiency has a direct positive impact on our business performance and customer satisfaction. Rapid scaling is a key requirement of ours and not all providers are able to achieve it so effectively. The combination of the CloudSigma cloud, the jclouds cross-cloud management driver and our NeoLoad product can now deliver spectacular load testing performance for our customers”

A Central European Network Hub location

CloudSigma’s central European location at a major networking hub has ensured that Neotys customers can use the CloudSigma cloud over a wide geographic catchment area with stable reliable networking performance. Neotys now extends their load testing coverage into central Europe and beyond with the addition of CloudSigma cloud based load generation servers.
