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.

SolarWinds Pingdom

If you are looking to take your page speed optimization to the next level, Pingdom is a great tool. It is very valuable at helping to identify issues, benchmark your pefromance and check to see the results of your optimization efforts. If you aren't using other uptime alert and server monitoring tools, those features will be very beneficial

Cons

SolarWinds Pingdom

  • An easy way to update a mass group of alerts instead of one-by-one edits
  • Our less IT-oriented teams sometimes have a hard time understanding what the alerts mean, but that is a user education issue we should probably address ourselves to better explain purposes of alerts.

Recently added features have made Pingdom less intuitive for our requirements. While Pingdom has a broad offering and remains a good value, it is becoming more than we need. Our customer base is becoming more and more global and Pingdom still lacks Asia-Pacific monitoring, which we will need within a year.

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.

Usability is good. Portability is also good. I am able to place this on various VMs in the DC and use that to help determine what areas to concentrate on. It also helps to find issues prior to a window that I can identify as not being part of the work to be performed and that the customer needs to address.

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.

Have always had very fast, smart, and professional help from the support teams. They have always quickly resolved my issues and helped me get the right sized package of services to meet our current business needs. Overall the support has been some of the best I get from SaaS software.

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.

The detailed reporting and website uptime monitoring is something other tools don't provide. You don't want to get a call from a client or customer that your site is down, or lose sales if it brings in sales to you.You get recommendations on how to enhance the page performance, breakdown of content type for the page, requests by domain, file requests, everything

Return on Investment

AWS Device Farm

  • Reduced the amount we spent on physical devices by > 90%.
  • Enabled real CI integration even when running E2E test scripts using mobile phones.
  • Helped us to improve overall App stability and rating - fewer crashes (80% to 99% of sessions crashless) and 75% rating increases on apps.

SolarWinds Pingdom

  • Excellent site monitoring allowing us to take necessary steps instantly to address outage or downtimes, thus keeping steady up time for our website customers
  • Detailed enough to get reasons of outages, which then lets us liaise with 3rd parties if necessary and to even get compensations in the event of missing SLAs
  • Negative: we still need to rely on our technical team to understand the reports from Pingdom
