Faster deployment cycles associated with microservices require fast automated test feedback cycles
Cloud native applications with Microservices architectures have fast deployment cycles. Testing needs to match this pace and provide rapid feedback to the development teams. We have in-depth experience developing test harnesses to address these concerns.
Testing as Code is our mantra to achieve faster deployments - all phases of testing are part of the DevOps pipeline
We believe in the concept of “Testing as Code” for all phases, including performance. For microservices based applications, Consumer Driven Contract Tests have helped us eliminate the integration challenges involved with code developed by multiple teams. Behavior Driven Testing using Cucumber for Continuous Integration has proven to be extremely valuable in identifying integration issues on a daily basis and provides fast feedback to developers. Once the framework is developed, business analysts can maintain these integration tests.
We have proven experience simulating real world user journeys as part of end-to-end testing
End-to-End tests are performed for mission critical applications to achieve a higher degree of confidence in the testing outcomes. We are able to build test harness that perform real world User Journeys with reliable results.
Continuous performance testing with cost based optimization is part of our performance tuning approach
Performance testing and tuning of the application as part of the Continuous Delivery pipeline is key to success. We help our clients understand performance impacts by automatically gathering test metrics and providing analysis of the data. The tuning of a cloud native application’s performance not only includes consideration of factors such as throughput and response times, but also factors such as “Cost Modeling” and “Auto Scaling”.
