Sauce Labs Offers Free, No Commitment Trials to Selenium Cloud Testing Service

Sign-Up for 30-Day Trial to Sauce OnDemand Now Open, in Support of Open Source Functional Testing and the Agile Ecosystem

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - October 14, 2010) -  Sauce Labs, the Selenium company, today introduced a no-commitment, 30-day free trial offer for Sauce OnDemand. Developers, QA engineers and others can now access the Sauce OnDemand cross-browser testing service, and see for themselves just how easy it is to test in the cloud. In addition, trials for Firefox on Linux users will automatically convert into free accounts after the trial period.

With almost three million tests already served in the cloud, Sauce OnDemand is the premier cloud-based Selenium testing service. Sauce OnDemand reduces wait time on tests by 90 percent -- and reduces costs by eliminating an internal testing infrastructure. Sauce OnDemand offers productivity features like Sauce TV and plug-ins for tools like Hudson and Soda. Integration with other development tools and major programming languages also makes getting started straightforward.

"Sauce Labs lives at the intersection of open-source software and software testing," said Jason Huggins, co-founder and CTO of Sauce Labs and creator of Selenium. "It's our goal to help developers test more frequently, so that they can release high quality code more often. These free offers for Sauce OnDemand underscore our dedication to developers, open-source projects and the agile ecosystem."

Advantages of Using Sauce OnDemand

  • Video playback and screenshots mean no recreating failures;
  • Cloud based browsers eliminate on-site testing infrastructure, reducing costs and admin;
  • Leverage existing investment in CI servers, development platforms and testing frameworks.

The future of agile testing will consist of teams building, testing, and releasing their code in ridiculously fast cycles. When developers release 50 times a day, testing becomes a critical part of maintaining that release speed. By making its service free to more developers, Sauce Labs intends to be part of that story.
