Last week I went to the WebSummit 2018 Conference in Lisbon and I managed to join some of the AWS talks. The talk that I am posting today is about chaos engineering, which specifically address the uncertainty of distributed systems at scale. The aim of this practice is to uncover the system weakness and build confidence in the system’s capability.
The harder it is to disrupt the steady state, the more confidence we have in the behavior of the system. If a weakness is uncovered, we now have a target for improvement before that behavior manifests in the system at large.
Today I am going to post the video on the exact moment that this talk starts.
This talk is presented by AWS Technical Evangelist Adrian Hornsby.
