The Cycle Appliance
Leveraging the cloud to save you time and money allowing you to get the most out of the Cycle Platform.
We understand that continuous testing can be time consuming to set up and isn’t always truly automated. The Cycle Appliance solves roadblocks that can prevent customers from being able to utilize Cycle to it’s full extent for Continuous Testing and CI/CD (Continuous Integration / Continuous Deployment).
The Cycle Appliance answers the where and how questions that often come with continuous Testing. Where do I run my unattended and automated Cycle tests? And, how do I orchestrate the execution of my tests? The Cycle Appliance uses the power of the Cloud to provide a place for running your Cycle tests and the means for orchestrating your tests to meet your business requirements.
In a time where much of the world is working at distance, the Appliance grants you peace of mind that your tests are running whether you are there to watch them or not. The days of scrambling to secure resources to run your testing are in the past – the Appliance allows you to easily scale your continuous testing without scrambling for the resources. It also facilitates incremental improvements to your enterprise system without the risk that usually comes with an enterprise system update or go live
