In 2008, Phillipe Hanrigou created Selenium Grid as part of the Selenium suite. Selenium Grid allows you to execute tests on machines running multiple browsers and operating systems at once.
Selenium Grid is comprised of a hub and multiple nodes for execution. You can think of the hub as a command center where you load your tests into. The hub is a single machine with one browser and operating system where the tests are run.
The node is where you see browser automation. Nodes provide environments for the test executions you run through the hub. There can be multiple nodes with different browsers and operating systems, but they are all connected to the hub to receive Selenium instances. The more nodes you have, the more tests you can run simultaneously.
The main benefit of Selenium Grid is to speed up testing. By providing an environment that allows tests to be executed on different browsers and operating systems at the same time, this lets you address cross-browser issues all at once, reducing the time it would take to do so sequentially.
For Continuous Integration motions, testing demands to be done at a rapid pace, and running tests sequentially can be painfully slow. Running in parallel on a grid can improve the speed of your testing greatly. Since you’re running multiple tests at the same time, rather than one after the other, you’re testing gets done in the fraction of the time it normally takes. This will help your team achieve continuous testing so release deadlines can be met on time with fewer bugs going through to customers.
Additionally, rather than only testing on one or two browsers, you can substantially increase your test coverage with parallel testing, hitting configurations you didn’t even realize were an issue and finding erorrs in code faster. Rather than just testing on Chrome in Windows, you can reach Safari, Firefox, and Opera on Mac and Windows, and much more, with a Selenium grid.
Remove the QA bottleneck once and for all with a perfectly scalable testing grid that can meet the demands of any web applications deployment speed.
