Cloud Lab Grid Automation
Need more flexibility for setting up test labs?
• The Cloud is a disruptive technology.
• Cloud Lab Grid Automation helps you harness the cloud to maximize testing efficiencies and cost savings.
• YOUR Test Lab on the Cloud!
• Save time and money, increase the quality of your software and be faster to the market with Grid Automation!
The emergence of public and private clouds has created an environment where virtually unlimited resources can be summoned on demand and nowhere is this more significant than in test automation. Regression testing in particular derives from a matrix of supported environments and configurations, with browsers and their different versions being perhaps the most common. Cloud Lab Grid Automation presents the opportunity to bringing the full power of the cloud to bear in a new and exciting way.
A Cloud Lab Grid Automation Server can run anywhere, whether in a public or private cloud or just a server in a lab or data center. From there it can manage any number of client or agent computers, which can be spun up automatically on public clouds like AWS, IBM or Rackspace or private clouds like VMware and Citrix. No matter how it is configured, it is distributed computing at its very best – physical machines, virtual machines and cloud machines are all the same to a Cloud Lab server.
The standard Cloud Lab agent comes with Selenium, the leading open source web testing solution, already installed along with the five major browsers (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Safari and Opera). So “out of the box” you can begin running your Selenium tests against all the major browsers in parallel, shaving hours if not days off your usual regression testing cycle. But if you have a license for another functional test tool you can install that on the Cloud Lab agent (or install the Cloud Lab agent software on your own machine) and do the same thing.
Whether you are running the same regression test in many environments, or using different data in the same environment, Cloud Lab Grid Automation is the way to “super charge” your testing and realize the benefits of combining grid computing with the cloud for maximum productivity. Cloud Lab Grid Automation is available on the Amazon and IBM clouds today.
Key features and benefits
• Manages all standard and customized versions of
your cloud instances
• Initiates and manages any number of cloud and VM
• Integrates with Virtual Private Clouds (VPC) to run
on internal networks
• Manages open RDP sessions with any number of
• Uploads and distributes tests and test data
• Allows keyboard and mouse interactions
• Displays individual (per machine) and consolidated
tests results in real time
The Cloud Advantage
Cloud computing is profoundly changing the landscape
of computer resources and technologies – and nowhere
is the “cloud advantage” more pronounced than for
development and testing environments.
Pay for Only What You Use
Testing has traditionally been performed on in‐house hardware out of necessity.
Entire labs are typically established containing dozens of
machines with specific configurations designed test
various aspects of the application. The capital costs in
establishing and maintaining these test labs can be
significant. Worse still, the test infrastructures are
typically idle for most of the time as development and
release cycles flow through the organization.
