For the first time, Kubernetes engineering teams interested in learning more about Speedscale will be able to play with the framework without registering, at play.speedscale.com. Engineers can see firsthand how you: While users won’t be able to actively watch replays run, there are a variety of pre-created traffic snapshots, reports and configs to browse. Engineers will be able to experience the ease with which snapshots are generated for fast, scalable test automation.

When the internet first came into existence in 1983, its communication channels didn't exist, and it was just operational enough to be used for research purposes. In 1989, Tim Berners-Lee had the idea to develop a system for the internet using TCP/IP protocols. That public project at CERN introduced HTTP, HTML, World Wide Web (WWW), and a client-server as communication mechanisms. In this post, you'll learn how HTTP protocol works and how new versions brought it to where we are now, with the widely used HTTP/2 in 2021.

Slowly but surely, HTTP/2 is becoming the favored protocol for transporting data files between clients and servers. While HTTP/1 used to be the only way of loading web applications, it’s now lagging behind, especially on the UX front. Since 2015, HTTP/2 APIs have taken the lead with lightning-fast server responses. In particular, they’re responsible for state changes and server responses without the need for browser reloads.

At Speedscale, we are on the cutting edge of defining autonomous testing for the cloud era. However, we aren’t the only company trying to solve this problem and we enjoy learning from every perspective. That’s why Facebook’s recent blog article about autonomous testing caught my eye. They’ve built a sophisticated autonomous test system that introduces many of the same techniques we utilize.

Have you ever written a Hello, World! application? In most of these tutorials the first step is to log words to the console. It's an easy way to understand what is going on with your application and readily available in every programming language. The console output is incredibly powerful, and it has become easier than ever to capture that output as logs. As your application grows and evolves you need to implement a structured application log approach.

KubeCon + CloudNativeCon North America is just around the corner. I’ve been looking forward to this event for a long time, especially since 2020 was virtual and it looks like there will be an in person option this year. This should be a great event and there are going to be a ton of awesome sessions. Last year was simply enormous with over 15K attendees who joined virtually.

Load testing isn’t an engineer’s favorite task. Every setup choice made during performance testing will yield varying results. The chosen load test protocol is the difference between an application that performs well under most circumstances and one that buckles at hidden stress points. Yet failing to run adequate tests isn’t an option when dealing with a complex API architecture. Needless to say, all your load testing options must be carefully evaluated.

Picking the right performance testing tool can be a challenge. What should you look for and what is important? Performance testing is a phrase many developers have come across at some point, but what is it exactly? In simple terms, performance testing is a software testing practice used to determine stability, responsiveness, scalability, and most important, speed of the application under a given workload.

Forecast latency, throughput and headroom before every deploy.

Continuous Resiliency from Speedscale gives you the power of a virtual SRE-bot working inside your automated software release pipeline. Forecast the real-world conditions of every build, and know you’ll hit your SLO’s before you go to production.

Feed Speedscale traffic (or let us listen) and we’ll turn it into traffic snapshots and corresponding mock containers. Insert your own service container in between for a robust sanity check every time you commit. Understand latency, throughput, headroom, and errors -- before you release! The best part? You didn’t have to write any scripts or talk to anyone!

Automated Traffic Replay for Every Stakeholder:

  • DevOps / SRE Pros: Understand if your app will break or burn up your error budget before you release.
  • Engineering Leads: Let Speedscale use traffic to autogenerate tests and mocks. Introduce Chaos testing and fuzzing.
  • Application Executives: Understand regression/performance, increase uptime and velocity with automation.

Before you go to production, run the projection.
