Tests are automatically selected to run against the Rainforest global crowd of testers, but you can select to have your tests run against your own on-premise crowd.
On-premise crowd is a dedicated team of internal testers from your company who will receive a job notification via email from Rainforest whenever you kick off a test to your on-premise crowd.
On-premise testers will receive their jobs in their tester portal like this and access the jobs through our VMs:
