Not on the current edition
This blip is not on the current edition of the Radar. If it was on one of the last few editions it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the Radar Understand more

Trial ? Worth pursuing. It is important to understand how to build up this capability. Enterprises should try this technology on a project that can handle the risk.

Terratest caught our attention in the past as an interesting option for infrastructure testing. Since then, our teams have been using it, and they're very excited about it because of its stability and the experience it provides. Terratest is a Golang library that makes it easier to write automated tests for infrastructure code. Using infrastructure-as-code tools such as Terraform, you can create real infrastructure components (such as servers, firewalls, or load balancers) to deploy applications on them and then validate the expected behavior using Terratest. At the end of the test, Terratest can undeploy the apps and clean up resources. This makes it largely useful for end-to-end tests of your infrastructure in a real environment.

Assess ? Worth exploring with the goal of understanding how it will affect your enterprise.

We widely use Terraform as code to configure a cloud infrastructure. Terratest is a Golang library that makes it easier to write automated tests for infrastructure code. A test run creates real infrastructure components (such as servers, firewalls or load balancers), deploys applications on them and validates the expected behavior using Terratest. At the end of the test, Terratest can undeploy the apps and clean up resources. This makes it largely useful for end-to-end tests of your infrastructure in a real environment.
