Sauce Labs Review

Allows us to off-load our local environments using the SauceCloud.


What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the ability to easily test multiple browsers and versions, as well as off-loading our local environments using the SauceCloud.

How has it helped my organization?

We're able to utilize the local server space more efficiently now that we utilize the SauceCloud for regression runs that have typically been resource-intensive.

What needs improvement?

Running tests in the SauceCloud can take longer than running in a local environment.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using it for six months or so.

What was my experience with deployment of the solution?

We have not encountered any deployment issues.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We have not encountered any stability issues. SauceCloud is great.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We have not encountered any scalability issues. SauceCloud handles all of this for us!

How is customer service and technical support?

Customer Service:

I have not directly communicated with customer service.

Technical Support:

I haven't had to use technical support; documentation is great. I can usually find an answer online if needed.

Which solutions did we use previously?

We previously used a locally scaled Selenium stack.

How was the initial setup?

There were some issues with our firewall and the tunnel for the SauceCloud. But we were able to overcome the hurdles fairly quickly.

What about the implementation team?

An in-house team implemented it.

What was our ROI?

Currently, the biggest return has been in the ability to re-purpose local environments, previously dedicated to regression testing. Also, freeing up the engineers to work on other tasks while Sauce handles the regression across multiple browsers.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

We have an enterprise account; it has worked great for our needs.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We didn't find anything that directly compared to Sauce Labs.

What other advice do I have?

It's a great tool!
