More about the topic:
Virtual mobile devices (emulators/simulators) are a cost-effective and straightforward alternative to testing on physical devices.

Maintaining physical test devices for mobile automation can be expensive and time-consuming. On top of the initial investment, you need to consider maintenance cost, replacement devices and efforts for manual scaling. On the other side of the spectrum, cloud providers take care of these restrictions, but their services can come at a hefty price tag, especially when your use-case requires a large number of devices. We present a middle path and demonstrate how to use virtual devices to build a reliable and scalable in-house device lab using Docker and Appium.

We showcase how to set-up and scale an Android emulator farm using Appium, Docker and SQS and how it fits into our larger testing and quality strategy.
