AWS Device Farm

This is the best solution I have found to trail run software before it is deployed across a large number of users and a large variety of device types. We have Windows, Mac OS, Android, and iOS devices. Android alone has a ton of OSs. This helps save time and test functionality across the board.

BlazeMeter Continuous Testing Platform

It is good for measurements of performance testing. It can be used to run API testing.I can not use this for monitoring but it can be used as a complement for monitoring tools (like Catchpoint or New Relic). It can help to produce load on your site and monitor.

Pros

AWS Device Farm

  • 100% compatibility with the installed user base. No simulation, but real results.

  • BlazeMeter takes the .jmx script that teams had written for JMeter. The transition from JMeter to BlazeMeter was seamless.
  • BlazeMeter offers its own cloud and hence we did not have to set it up on-premise.
  • BlazeMeter hits our application from various geographic locations that simulates real life users.

Cons

AWS Device Farm

  • Cost and price is always a concern
  • Can be a bit clunky for the staff using the service.
  • Sometimes, misses issues with iOS devices.

  • Blazemeter reporting is very basic and shallow. There is no way to drill down or correlate. I can get better reports by using JMeter for free.
  • Blazemeter is very costly. Testing with volumes of more than 1K cu is expensive, and can be done for much cheaper if a company/team is willing to invest a bit of time to figure out how to use cloud instances and jmeter slaves, and to write a basic script to collect resulting xml output.

The users have no issue. The IT staff have learned to work with the software with the help of AWS support. I find it very effective. Could it be easier? Of course. That doesn't mean this isn't a great solution. I would recommend it to anyone based on usability. Overall, it is easy enough to use.

Based on 3 answers
We had the enterprise support with AWS, so overall support experience was good with great engineers on the back providing answers. As you may know, overall AWS support is different and this is not different. Responses through the regular web support channel came easily, fast and accurate. We had questions/issues which were solved fast. Documentation is good as well, especially around the test automation pieces.

Alternatives Considered

AWS Device Farm

This is the only solution I have used from device farming. From that perspective, I would purchase it again. I think this is a great solution for a large, diverse organization looking to mass deploy and manage software and devices. We selected this software because we have had great luck with other AWS services.
