AWS Device Farm is perfect for small teams who don't have enough resources to conduct large scale testing scenarios or even large teams who would like an easier time with testing on various devices. [AWS] Device Farm makes it very easy to interact with a multitude of devices right from the browser.

  • It would be great to see the Protractor API implemented successfully inside a non-Angular web application.

Support Rating
Amazon AWS
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.

Cypress.io is an alternative end-to-end test framework that does NOT use Selenium. Since I've only evaluated this tool as a possible solution, my estimation of its performance against Protractor is incomplete. However, if you and your team are looking for automation solutions outside of the Selenium scope, then Cypress.io may be a good fit given the problems you're trying to solve.
