Nora Jones, a senior software engineer on Netflix’ Chaos Team, talks with Wesley Reisz about what Chaos Engineering means today. She covers what it takes to build a practice, how to establish a strategy, defines cost of impact, and covers key technical considerations when leveraging chaos engineering.
Why listen to this podcast:
- Chaos engineering is a discipline where you formulate hypotheses, perform experiments, and evaluate the results afterwards.
- Injecting a bit of failure over time is going to make your system more resilient in the end.
- Start with Tier 2 or non-critical services first, and build up success stories to grow chaos further.
- As systems become more and more distributed, there becomes a higher need for chaos engineering.
- If you’re running your first experiment, get your service owners in a war room and get them to monitor the results of the test as it is running.
