Gremlin has added Automatic Service Discovery to its chaos engineering platform in an effort to help companies improve resilience and reduce downtime by identifying the various services running across distributed systems.  “The rise in popularity of microservices necessitate services functioning as first-class citizens. The infrastructure layer is becoming more abstract and engineers are increasingly thinking … continue reading

Report finds chaos engineering can significantly decrease MTTR and increase availability

A new report revealed those who have successfully implemented chaos engineering have 99.9% or higher availability and greatly improved their mean time to resolution (MTTR).  Gremlin’s inaugural 2021 State of Chaos Engineering report found 23% of teams who frequently run chaos engineering projects had a MTTR of under 1 hour, and 60% under 12 hours. … continue reading

Chaos engineering in serverless environments is more useful than you’d think

Chaos engineering has been gaining a lot of traction over the last few years as it moved from its origins at Netflix to more and more companies across the industry. Many development teams use it to prevent downtime by trying to break their systems on purpose so that they can improve those systems before they … continue reading

AWS unveils new chaos engineering tool: Fault Injection Simulator

According to the company, the new offering will come packed with pre-built templates for creating … continue reading

Gremlin isolates its resource attacks to soundproof noisy neighbors

The software reliability company Gremlin announced three major platform updates at the Virtual KubeCon North American 2020 conference this week to ensure users can safely and securely prepare solutions for failure regardless of the Kubernetes platform. The new features are: the ability to isolate its resource attacks into a single container, support for containerd and … continue reading

Engineering practices that advance testing

Testing practices are shifting left and right, shaping the way software engineering is done. In addition to the many types of tests described in this Deeper Look, test-driven development (TDD), progressive engineering and chaos engineering are also considered testing today. TDD TDD has become popular with Agile and DevOps teams because it saves time. Tests … continue reading

There’s more to testing than simply testing

Rapid innovation and the digitalization of everything is increasing application complexity and the complexity of environments in which applications run. While there’s an increasing emphasis on continuous testing as more DevOps teams embrace CI/CD, some organizations are still disproportionately focused on functional testing. “Just because it works doesn’t mean it’s a good experience,” said Thomas … continue reading

Gremlin brings safety improvements to chaos engineering with Status Checks

Gremlin wants to make it safer to experiment in production with the release of Status Checks. The new capability automatically verifies systems are healthy and ready for chaos engineering.  “More and more, companies want to do Chaos Engineering. And not only do it, but automate it. But they are concerned if they have attacks triggering … continue reading

premium To build resilient systems, embrace the chaos

It shouldn’t be news to you to hear that software needs to be tested rigorously before being pushed to production. Over the years, countless testing methodologies have popped up, each promising to be the best one. From automated testing to continuous testing to test-driven development, there is no shortage of ways to test your software. … continue reading

Traditional QA won’t address today’s performance issues

We test because something broke in the past, because we care about quality code, and we want to make sure the same thing doesn’t happen again. Quality Assurance (QA) testing was a response to the realization that we should proactively seek out problems in our software, before any new code is deployed into production, so … continue reading

Chaos engineering passes ‘why,’ moves to ‘how’

Chaos engineering is not a new concept, but it has become more important as systems have become more complex. With applications and deployments broken down into smaller pieces, and networks being thrown between everything, the possibilities for things to go wrong are greater than ever. RELATED CONTENT: Learn to harness chaos to build resilient systems … continue reading

Learn to harness chaos to build resilient systems

Systems in production fail. Nodes go down, networks become inaccessible. Chaos engineering is the practice of intentionally failing production infrastructure to see how resilient the system is. At this year’s ChaosConf, attendees will learn the how-to and benefits of failing parts of their infrastructure to see how their systems hold up, and to see where … continue reading
