Chaos Engineering is a disciplined approach to identifying failures before they become outages. By proactively testing how a system responds under stress, you can identify and fix failures before they end up in the news. Chaos Engineering lets you compare what you think will happen to what actually happens in your systems. You literally “break things on purpose” to learn how to build more resilient systems.

Tammy Butow leads a walkthrough of network chaos engineering, covering the tools and practices you need to implement chaos engineering in your organization. Even if you’re already using chaos engineering, you’ll learn to identify new ways to use chaos engineering to improve the resilience of your network and services. You will also discover how other companies are using chaos engineering—and the positive results they have had using chaos to create reliable distributed systems.

This talk will share how you can accelerate your understanding of how your network can break (packet loss, blackhole attacks, latency injection, and packet corruption) and impact your services.
