The Hood to Coast relay is an overnight, long distance relay race held in Oregon every year. It has been dubbed “the mother of all relays” for a reason – it’s one of the longest and largest relays, covering more than 200 miles from Timberline Lodge at Mt. Hood to Seaside on the Oregon Coast. I’m a passionate runner, so Hood-to-Coast, being one of the most iconic races around, has been on my bucket list for some time.
As you have probably noticed, this October we launched our completely redesigned website, right before AWS re:Invent. We’re excited about the new site for a lot of reasons – but perhaps the most important is that it’s reflective of the evolution of the Nouvola brand.

If you’ve been following this blog or have seen us at one of the many trade shows we’ve been to recently, you know just how busy our team has been. So here’s a bit of evidence that we’re not all work and no play.
Last year we introduced you to Nouvola co-founder and CEO Paola Moretto. Here, meet co-founder and chief technology officer Paola Rossaro.
Oregon Entrepreneurs Network (OEN) has recently started a monthly column in the Portland Business Journal (PBJ) in their TechFlash section and we are happy to announce that Nouvola CEO and Co-founder Paola Moretto has written the first one for them. It's a great article about being a "Unicorn with Sparkles" - a female technologist founder. Great read from one of our industry "unicorns".
This time a year ago, I was reflecting on a year of firsts: Nouvola’s first year in operation, our first product launch and our first accolades.
Today I’m happy to say these were the first of many. Nouvola went on from there to have a successful second year, growing our product offering, our customer base and our profile, and establishing just how relevant our products are in today’s fast-paced environment where so much business is transacted over the web. In the last six months alone we’ve shown a 400% increase in paying customers and an over 4000% increase in monthly revenue.
Enterprise software isn’t something you usually wrap and put under a tree. But here at Nouvola, we’re feeling very festive this holiday season, and it’s not just about the gift parties and the eggnog. We’re in a celebratory mood because we know that our cloud performance testing software is delivering real value … gifts, if you will … to any business that uses it.
So in the spirit of the season we made a list, some of us even checked it twice, of the gifts of web performance testing.
You can’t win them all. Nobody knows that more than high-tech entrepreneurs who view every setback as a learning experience. Recently Nouvola was named a finalist in the Oregon Entrepreneur Network’s (OEN) Tom Holce Award for the Launch Stage Company of the Year. While we didn’t take the winning prize, we were honored to be recognized among some other highly innovative businesses like GlobeSherpa, another local startup that is creating jobs here in Portland and introducing a transformative technology likely to have a far-reaching impact.
Performance testing meets performance monitoring
Nouvola a leader in SaaS performance testing of cloud applications and New Relic, the industry leader in application monitoring are happy to announce our new partnership. Paola Moretto Co-founder and CEO of Nouvola said:
