Introducing Boosters: Move Faster with Automatic Parallel Testing

As any application grows in features, running all automated tests in the continuous integration (CI) environment begins to take a significant amount of time.

Boosters give you better performance and are much easier to use.

Your build time is shorter because Boosters keep track of tests over time and make sure that they are always perfectly distributed across all parallel jobs.

And there’s basically nothing to figure out. You don’t need to change and maintain special build configuration, update test file log etc.

This comes from Semaphore being a full CI service vs a local gem.
