The CNCF Technical Oversight Committee (TOC) has voted to approve LitmusChaos’ move from the CNCF Sandbox to Incubation level. 

LitmusChaos is an open-source chaos engineering platform that helps teams identify weaknesses and potential outages in infrastructures by inducing chaos tests in a controlled way. 

“The CNCF ecosystem has helped us build a strong and vibrant community around Litmus,” said Uma Mukkara, maintainer of the Litmus project and CEO of ChaosNative. “We have received consistent feedback from users since the launch of 1.0 release last year, which helped us come up with a robust set of features and a stable platform for cloud native chaos engineering.”
