Sauce Labs Inc receives a $3 million investment
SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 08/28/12 -- Sauce Labs, Inc., the leading provider of web application testing solutions for enterprise developers, today announced the closing of a $3 million Series B funding round led by Triage Ventures. Salesforce.com also joined as an investor in the Series B round. The company also today announced the public availability of a new mobile web application testing cloud for Mac OS X, iOS and Android environments that will help slash the cost and time-to-market for iPad, iPhone and some Android device applications.
Sauce Labs offers automated and manual testing services for web applications. The company's popular Sauce OnDemand and Sauce Scout solutions are used by some of the largest consumer and enterprise brands. The Sauce OnDemand testing cloud is already used to run approximately one million tests each month with that number continuing to grow.
By expanding its solutions to support the Mac OS X platform, Sauce Labs becomes the first to provide Mac developers an automated, enterprise-class testing cloud that leverages virtualization for iOS applications. The new testing capabilities will reduce to just hours or days the testing and debugging process for applications for the iPad and iPhone. By virtualizing OS X in the cloud, Sauce Labs can offer superior security to its users.
"Today marks a major advancement in the development of applications for the Mobile Web. With our new support for OS X, iOS, and Android web browsers, consumers will enjoy new apps faster and at a lower cost because of our innovation," Jason Huggins, CTO of Sauce Labs, said. "Until now, web developers had no other enterprise-class options but to build and maintain costly testing infrastructures for mobile platforms. Our Sauce testing cloud is one of the fastest, most secure and best ways for organizations to ship mobile web applications faster and at a much lower cost. Developers using Sauce Labs will ship with higher quality, more quickly. And well tested software leads to happier users."
