AWS re:Invent 2017: Performing Chaos at Netflix Scale (DEV334)

Chaos Engineering is described as “the discipline of experimenting on a distributed system in order to build confidence in the system’s capability to withstand turbulent conditions in production.” Going beyond Chaos Monkey, this session covers the specifics of designing a Chaos Engineering solution, how to increment your solution technically and culturally, the socialization and evangelism pieces that tend to get overlooked in the process, and how to get developers excited about purposefully injected failure. This session provides examples of getting started with Chaos Engineering at startups, performing chaos at Netflix scale, integrating your tools with AWS, and the road to cultural acceptance within your company. There are several different “levels” of chaos you can introduce before unleashing a full-blown chaos solution. We provide a focus on each of these levels, so you can leave this session with a game plan you can culturally and technically introduce.
