June 30, 2011 by  

Hosting ServicesPALO ALTO, CA – Apica, a leading European load testing and performance-monitoring provider for cloud and mobile applications, today announced it has entered into the Cloud Tools Program with RackspaceĀ® Hosting, (NYSE: RAX), the world’s leading specialist in the hosting and cloud computing industry. Apica is offering its highly effective, state-of-the-art cloud load testing tools through a free trial made available to Rackspace customers for a “smoke test” to show how applications will perform under stressed load conditions. With Apica LoadTest, users may reduce the risk of project failure due to capacity and load issues and ensure excellence in the cloud.

Leading research firms Forrester and Gartner predict the global market for cloud computing will grow six-fold in the next 10 years. As more businesses move to cloud computing, it’s absolutely critical these businesses test their cloud applications prior to deployment to ensure uptime and optimal performance levels. Failure to deliver performance in an application will have a significant impact on the business. Apica solutions test, monitor and optimize cloud applications, and give businesses a true understanding of how their cloud applications perform.
