OUR SOLUTION APPROACH
Parkar proposed a radical approach by combing few solutions to address the problem than a liner / traditional solution available in the market.
A public/hybrid cloud-based approach was envisioned/opted/proposed for the monitoring infrastructure to avoid the infrastructure management at customer locations which take time and incur heavy capital expenses. This approach further enabled us to distribute the test units across multiple third-party managed data centers.
Packaging and Update
The test units are packaged as Docker images that / which helped us to deploy it as a core unit The containerizing approach gives the advantage/ability to deploy it remotely without affecting the underlying infrastructure across various cloud providers and orchestrate them remotely.
Ability to test various customer interfaces
Developed a lean framework that has the capability of testing few of the interfaces like HTTP Web, REST, S/FTP, DNS which could further be extended to include other interfaces in the growing arena of modern technologies. Parkar has also decoupled the framework from the monitoring tests to make the framework and test suites more maintainable
