Sauce Labs, Inc., provider of the world's largest cloud-based platform for automated testing of web and mobile applications, today announced the opening of a new mobile Real Device Cloud in its California Data Centers. Featuring 500 real devices, the new Real Device Cloud provides both manual and automated testing of web, hybrid, and native apps in either private or public cloud configurations. In addition, the company announced availability of the latest emulators and simulators for testing mobile apps and websites on virtual devices.

"The world we live in is not merely mobile, but mobile-first," said Lubos Parobek, vice president of product at Sauce Labs. "It is imperative for companies during development to test their apps early and often across every popular platform, browser, OS, and device combination to catch problems quickly and speed new apps to market. With our new Real Device Cloud and updated simulators and emulators, Sauce Labs is the only cloud-based automated testing platform that enables developers to test across desktops, emulators, simulators, and real devices -- providing truly comprehensive platform coverage."

Experimental comparison of simulation tools for efficient cloud and mobile cloud computing applications

Cloud computing provides a convenient and on-demand access to virtually unlimited computing resources. Mobile cloud computing (MCC) is an emerging technology that integrates cloud computing technology with mobile devices. MCC provides access to cloud services for mobile devices. With the growing popularity of cloud computing, researchers in this area need to conduct real experiments in their studies.

Setting up and running these experiments in real cloud environments are costly. However, modeling and simulation tools are suitable solutions that often provide good alternatives for emulating cloud computing environments. Several simulation tools have been developed especially for cloud computing. In this paper, we present the most powerful simulation tools in this research area...
