Microservices testing

Make your ecosystem faultless
and secure at a granular level

Why opt for testing microservices?

  • Performance
    Enable smooth interaction and unhindered data flow between microservices, with no bottlenecks and errors
  • Efficiency
    Guarantee each microservice delivers intended functionality to end users
  • Security
    Make certain there are no vulnerabilities to serve as a foothold for cybersecurity breaches
  • Sustainability
    Get expert recommendations on how to make your microservice architecture resilient and future-proof

One vendor, a variety of testing strategies

By leveraging a range of testing approaches, be it for manual or automated testing of microservices, the a1qa team will help you get microservices that maximize deployment velocity.

  • Unit testing

    Our team will test the source code units and check if they behave as designed with different inputs and under varied conditions.

  • Component testing

    As part of our testing routine, we will isolate each component of your microservice architecture using stubbing and mocking techniques to identify possible flaws and bugs in its code prior to and after deployment.

  • Integration testing

    When running microservices through integration testing, we will review how well they connect, communicate, and interact as a unified system. Our team will also perform microservices testing through API to ensure integrated modules meet performance and reliability expectations.

  • Performance testing

    We render thorough microservices performance testing, assessing how stable and responsive the architecture is under expected and extreme loads, and recommending how to improve its fault-tolerance. We also identify bottlenecks in terms of load balancing in order to leverage computing power usage.

  • Contract testing

    The a1qa team will simulate interaction scenarios between consumer and API provider endpoints of microservices to detect possible malfunctions and discrepancies between expected and returned responses.

  • Security testing

    Within the scope of microservices security testing, we will do an assortment of checks – from vulnerability scanning and penetration testing to risk assessment, reviewing user authentication, security patches, and API gateway safety, among other aspects.

  • End-to-end testing

    Applying one overarching testing strategy, we will make sure your entire software product, which is based on microservices architecture, delivers as expected while meeting rigorous quality requirements, from low-level services to public APIs and the front-end.

  • Test automation

    For agile-led projects where continuous deployment is critical, we implement a continuous testing approach to keep your system in check during fast-paced delivery.
