SOASTA, a company that tests Web applications, needed access to thousands of geographically dispersed servers to simulate real-world Internet traffic for its customers. Instead of buying its own servers, SOASTA developed a cloud-based testing application that it now deploys on the Windows Azure platform. SOASTA has easy access to servers all over the world under a pay-as-you-go pricing model. The company recently demonstrated its CloudTest application in a case-study test of Office.com for Microsoft.
