Skytap Achieves Key Milestones, Poised for Strong Growth in 2014

Skytap Software Development and Testing Solution Selected by Over 270 Enterprises to Build Better Software Faster

SEATTLE, WA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/26/14 -- Skytap, Inc., the leading provider of SaaS development and test environments, today announced several key business, customer, and product milestones that have contributed to the company's aggressive growth. Over the last year, Skytap expanded its global footprint into Asia-Pacific to meet the needs of a growing global customer base, and introduced several enhancements to its SaaS-based software development and testing offering. Usage of Skytap continues to soar with over 270 customers launching more than three million virtual machines (VMs) in Skytap.

"The last year was record breaking on many counts, pointing to the growing enterprise demand for solutions that accelerate application development," said Thor Culverhouse, CEO of Skytap. "We expect this market to continue to expand at breakneck pace as enterprises adopt technologies that have proven to drive product innovation and competitive differentiation."

By leveraging agile development methodologies, developers, test engineers, and QA teams can more rapidly introduce software applications. To successfully implement an agile approach, these once siloed teams need tight integration, fast and secure access to IT environments, and the ability to collaborate with team members around the globe.

Skytap's offering has evolved over the last year to more deeply support the needs of development and test teams. Recent additions include:

In addition to its two existing US-based data centers, Skytap expanded its international footprint to meet growing global demand. In January 2014, Skytap added its first international data center, located in Singapore, to serve customers across the APAC region, including Australia, Hong Kong, and China.
