Running Chaos Experiments on AWS

Today’s distributed systems running on cloud infrastructure are increasingly complex. While there are multiple tools and services that simplify building and operating such systems, unexpected errors still happen, all the time. Multiple interdependencies created by the combination of cloud services, application architecture, underlying physical infrastructure, network/security configurations define multiple places where failures can happen. Chaos engineering is an approach to software development and testing designed to eliminate such failures before the customer notices. By performing controlled chaos experiments in a distributed environment, engineering teams can build confidence in the system’s ability to tolerate inevitable future failures. In my talk, I’m going to dive deep into a new service for running chaos experiments on the AWS cloud, the AWS Fault Injection Simulator.
