Application testing vendor SOASTA is a strategic partner in the new Rackspace Cloud Tools program, but has worked with other cloud providers including as well. SOASTA is both a consumer of cloud resources – it’s test environments require thousands of servers to stress test large Web sites and applications – and also sells its test service to companies building their own apps in cloud environments. “It does take a community of vendors to help companies build and deploy a cloud application. Different vendors supply different pieces of the puzzle,” said SOASTA CEO Tom Lounibos.

Rackspace’s Cloud Tools portal supports its Rackspace Cloud computing environment. Tool categories include monitoring and reporting; development tools; system management; and client software. Initially, the portal includes tools from more than 15 “strategic” partners, with which Rackspace entered into formal co-marketing agreements.
