DevOps Testing Strategy

Introduction

Seamless collaboration between development, test automation & operations teams is the key to achieve swift, continuous development & deployment. DevOps technology brings in the much-needed cultural shift across teams, improves quality, increases the response rate of the ever-evolving business changes. It also creates the right environment for the growth of software development engineers in testing.

Definition

DevOps is a set of testing practices which includes software development and IT Operations with an aim to shorten the Software Development Life Cycle by providing continuous delivery of high-quality software

DevOps Testing - The Thoughtframeworks way!

DevOps is a set of testing practices that includes software development and IT Operations intending to shorten the Software Development Life Cycle by providing continuous delivery of high-quality software Continuous Testing in DevOps

The cornerstone for continuous testing in DevOps is testing the software at every stage of its development life cycle. This helps in evaluating the quality of the software in every step and makes way for continuous integration (CI) and continuous delivery (CD). Agile Methodology complements this, Thoughframeworks approaches and follows the best business practices by integrating testing into Continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Delivery(CD) in DevOps pipeline.

Importance of DevOps Continuous Testing
  1. Provides Sustained Risk Analysis
  2. Cuts down the feedback cycle
  3. Broader Test Coverage
  4. Delivering High-Quality Product
  5. Faster Software Delivery
  6. Easy Integration with DevOps Process

What happens when you don't do DevOps Continuous Testing

In the traditional software development prototype, the requirement occupies the X-axis of the plan and delivery occupies the Y-axis. This placement will have a negative impact in terms of cost, time, and errors. For instance, a defect that is discovered and corrected once the software has entered production will cost a fortune as compared to it being identified in the requirement phase.

Traditional Model

Thoughtframeworks DevOps Continuous Testing Services include the following:

  • Microservices Architecture Testing
  • Cloud Native Application Testing

Microservices Architecture Testing:

The goal of the microservices architecture is to decentralise the development process by breaking down monolithic applications and releasing services separately and often.

The goal of the microservices architecture is to decentralize the development process by breaking down monolithic applications and releasing services separately and often.

All of these operations are included in Microservices Architecture Testing, but it requires a methodology to support it. DevOps being an exquisite fit for all the requirements that Microservices Architecture testing has to offer. It allows for experimentation and innovation where customer experience and delight are of prime importance.

DevOps Continuous Testing Services - “Cloud Native Application Testing”

Cloud Native Application Testing

A collection of small, independent and loosely coupled services are referred to as Cloud-native Application. The goal is to deliver business needs as per the end user’s expectation. Cloud Native Applications are built with a focus to achieve resiliency, agility and observability in mind. DevOps is a practise in which operations and development engineers collaborate throughout the lifespan of a project. DevOps processes entail continuous improvement, automation and involvement of cross-functional teams to align towards the business goals while being customer-centric.

Tools for Continuous Testing in DevOps

A support system for Continuous testing is achieved by including the DevOps tools throughout the CI/CD process to achieve seamless customer experience.

DevOps Testing Tools

1. Automation Testing Tools 

  • Selenium
  • Cypress
  • Appium
  • WebDriverIO

2.Performance Testing Tools 

  • Neoload
  • JMeter
  • LoadRunner
  • Gatling
  • JIRA
  • Jenkins
  • Bamboo
  • Docker
  • Appium
  • SoapUI
  • CodeCluster
  • PageDuty
  • Sonar for static code analysis

A Typical DevOps Testing Strategy & Environment

A continuous & automated Testing process enables continuous & faster delivery of software.

Testing Spans every stage of the Software Development lifecycle (SDLC)

Employing different forms of testing in SDLC minimizes backing tracking of an already detected error.

Testing has now evolved to Shared Testing - this allows everyone to understand the impact significance behind each change.
