The Need for a Private Device Farm

DevOps and QA teams need a wide range of devices to develop and debug their code, and ensure that a software works as intended. Accessing different devices becomes challenging when the teams are distributed across geographies. If you are buying, renting, and transporting devices, and especially, paying an exorbitant rental fee every month, we have a solution for you.

42Gears’ AstroFarm was built to solve these challenges. If you already have a set of devices, you can easily enroll them in AstroFarm, giving your team of developers and testers the ability to test on the company-owned device anytime, anywhere.
