Exactpro, the UK-based software testing services provider that specialises in financial markets infrastructures has completed testing for the repurchase agreement (or “repo”) market recently launched by the Astana International Exchange (AIX) in Kazakhstan.
Exactpro used th2, its cloud-native Kubernetes-driven microservices test automation framework, to complete functional and non-functional testing, the company said.
“The importance of factoring in non-functional testing when it comes to building cloud infrastructures cannot be overestimated,” said Pavel Medvedev, head of non-functional testing at Exactpro (pictured). “The complexity of a cloud-native architecture is not easy to match."
The testing spanned functional and non-functional testing (NFT) of the platform, including integration with AIX’s central securities depository. The non-functional testing included capacity and daily life cycle testing, scalability, stress and latency testing for order entry and market data streams.
Astana International Exchange (AIX) was established in 2017 and operates public equity and debt capital markets in Kazakhstan and the Central Asian region. AIX had previously worked with Exactpro to migrate its Nasdaq-sourced matching engine to the Amazon Web Services’ (AWS) cloud.
