In today’s world of agile programming, the need for automation is growing strong.
Organizations are writing hundreds and thousands of automation tests and that could take hours to run, and also requires a lot of machine power.
In, we implemented an automation system that validates hundreds of RestAPI endpoints in minutes using aws cloud services.
Using aws, we can run our automation tests in the cloud and not bother with machine configuration and installation.
We can also use services like Kubernetes to automatically scale our testing machines on demand.
This gives our organization access to hundreds of machines at a very cost effective rates.
