Speedscale, the API test automation software company, today launches Speedscale CLI, a free observability tool that inspects detections and maps API calls to local applications or containers. The offering emphasizes the importance of continuous and proactive API testing to quickly detect and debug faults within a changing range of upstream and downstream interdependencies.
Speedscale Launches Free Visibility Testing App for API Calls
“Customers like Grofers and Nylas have made it clear that fixing defects during development costs a fraction of what it costs to track down production issues. However, moving detection to the left can significantly slow down the CI / CD process, unless developers have a clear understanding of what is under the hood of each API and how code changes affect their operations. we offer CLI Speedscale for free, because we recognize that API visibility is the foundation that all cloud native developers need to validate features and fix flaws before code is released, ”said Ken Ahrens, Co-Founder and CEO of Speedscale.
“Speedscale’s quick and in-depth inspection of API calls is what allows us to deploy frequent, large-scale quality upgrades to our cloud architecture … The return on investment we have achieved is enormous.” . – David Ting, Nylas SVP of Engineering, CISO
While the goal of CI / CD is to deploy applications quickly and continuously, only 15% of DevOps leaders say their organization deploys even once per day, according to a recent report from CloudBolt Software. To keep pace with cloud native deployment times, SaaS companies need modern QA tools that save developers time and eliminate errors in Kubernetes and the container delivery pipeline.
Speedscale addresses the quintessential struggle of cloud native developers: how to test APIs during CI / CD in a way that properly “mocks” changing production environments in its free and commercial products.
Free product capabilities
Speedscale CLI is a desktop tool that offers the following features:
– Service Mapping, allowing developers to automatically detect and map external dependencies that could crash in production, without having to send their data anywhere.
– Traffic viewer, for logging and tracking API calls to and from an API under development. Often headers, cookies, message bodies, and authentication can be difficult to understand, especially in complex protocols like gRPC.
– Latency detection, allowing users to understand which API calls are slow and how code changes affect performance in order to focus optimization efforts.
– The upcoming load generation allows users to run mini load tests locally.
Speedscale’s commercial product complements CLI’s observability capabilities with automated API-level testing, automated creation of mock environments, and reporting. Replaying sanitized production traffic and creating mock environments and reports allow developers to validate code and identify flaws at the speed of cloud native development before code is deployed.
“Speedscale gives cloud native developers the clarity we need to understand what APIs do and how they work. Its quick and in-depth inspection of API calls allows us to deploy frequent and large-scale quality upgrades to our cloud architecture. Speedscale is the backbone of our performance benchmarking strategy, and the return on investment we have achieved has been enormous, ”said David Ting, Nylas SVP of Engineering, CISO.
