How to Properly Test Enterprise Grade, Mission Critical Middleware
Middleware like databases or messages brokers are mission critical by design as they are necessary to allow applications to work and work together. Outages of such components have severe impacts on the end user experience and therefore can negatively impact revenue and image of the company running the application that uses these components.
This means that middleware, especially when deployed in a business case of an enterprise environment, has the highest possible reliability requirements. Basic unit and integration tests during the software development do not suffice.
The talk aims to give a holistic insights into the reliability assurance process behind highly scalable, enterprise grade, and mission critical middleware.
Attendees will learn how the Quality Assurance team of HiveMQ, an Enterprise MQTT Broker, tackle and overcome this challenge. This session covers a high level view of the immense testing and deployment pipeline, the product is built on, goes over best practises, pitfalls and concepts and finishes with tactical examples of how the Landshut based team ensures that their reliability promises to customers are upheld.
