LambdaTest Unveils Cloud-Based Website and Application Testing Platform
Concept: US tech startup LambdaTest has launched a cloud-based website and app testing platform named HyperTest to help companies perform faster end-to-end selenium testing. Selenium is an open source project that automates web browser testing, saving developers and QA analysts time by not having to manually test every feature. The startup claims HyperTest is the world’s fastest cloud grid, capable of testing up to 70% faster than other cloud-based test execution grids, giving developers faster test feedback .
Nature of the disturbance: HyperTest displays both terminal logs of test commands and full test execution logs in a single automation dashboard view. It provides test execution logs including terminal logs, exceptions, test execution video, commands and dashboard network connection. For all major operating systems, including Windows, macOS, and Linux containers, the platform includes feature-rich hosted runners. All major programming languages and frameworks including Java, Node.js, Python, PHP, GO, C#, Rust and Ruby are pre-installed on the runners. HyperTest combines all components into a single execution environment, reducing test execution times by eliminating network hops. This allows organizations to test code and fix errors at a significantly faster rate, which speeds time to market. It helps developers intelligently bundle and distribute tests across runtime parameters using a simple YAML file. This intelligent test orchestration uses previous test run data and automatically reorders test runs to quickly expose issues and reduce developer turnaround times. The platform helps developers and testers fully examine the quality of their builds on a single platform by generating insightful automatic reports for every build run with all test run data in one place. This eliminates the need to collect data from different sources and create complex report structures. Companies can configure automatic sequencing, static and dynamic test discovery, and static data splitting leveraging their intelligent workflow capabilities.
Outlook: Due to the huge number of network hops that occur during each test, existing automated test platforms are inherently slow. Throughout the testing process, multiple network components are involved, causing unnecessary delays, which is the biggest barrier to bringing a product to market quickly. As digital companies release products and services at an alarming rate to outpace their competitors, it is essential to test code thoroughly before releasing it to the public. Companies can speed time to market by intelligently reducing test execution time using HyperTest, which supports selenium testing. LambdaTest raised $16 million in a Series B funding round led by Sequoia Capital India with participation from Telstra Ventures and Wamda Capital in June 2021. The startup intends to use the funds to expand its ecosystem test and develop next-generation cloud infrastructure for users. .
