Spin up lightweight environments to enable pre-merge testing for microservices. Discover issues before merging code and ship new features faster.
We’re building a Kubernetes-based solution that enables environments, called Sandboxes, to test your microservices early in the development lifecycle. Unlike traditional environments, Sandboxes are lightweight and spin up in seconds. This makes it cost-effective to create test environments for every pull request, branch, and commit.
Most engineering teams use pre-production environments, called staging environments, to test against real-world conditions. However, testing on staging introduces the following challenges:
With Signadot, DevOps teams can set up lightweight environments, called Sandboxes, that can be used to test each pull request/commit. Teams run a suite of integration and end-to-end tests for each PR without impacting others. This helps find issues early that would otherwise be found in staging (or worse … in production!).
Our CLI/YAML integrates with CI pipelines to automate the testing of Pull Requests. As shown in the image below, Sandboxes encapsulate “services-under-test” connected to other dependencies running in Kubernetes. Sandboxes are lightweight to spin up and cost-efficient at scale.
