Building a Fortress of Protection: Unlocking the Potential of Chaos Engineering's Seven Components

Organizations face constant challenges safeguarding their assets and data in the ever-evolving cybersecurity landscape. A proactive and dynamic approach ensures robust protection against ever-increasing cyber threats. This is where chaos engineering comes into play. Originally popularized for testing system resilience, chaos engineering has expanded its scope to address security concerns.

Chaos Engineering: Why Break Things on Purpose? #kongbuilders #kong #kongmesh

🗣️ In our next Kong Builders Livestream, Andrew Kew is joining us to tell us more about the topic of Chaos Engineering. With the move to distributed cloud architectures, it's becoming more critical to ensure that our platforms are designed for failure and behave the way we expect in these failure events.

7 Steps to Execute Chaos Engineering

We’ve all heard about the significant WhatsApp breakdowns that have happened in the recent past, during which the app was unavailable for the public for an hour. However, from a technical standpoint, WhatsApp returned in less than an hour. What would have enabled the engineers at WhatsApp to quickly restore the services? Technically speaking, the team experienced an extremely stressful production failure because of this.

Resilience and chaos testing with SteadyBit and k6, with Benjamin Wilms (k6 Office Hours #61)

What is the difference between resilience testing and chaos testing? SteadyBit CEO and co-founder Benjamin Wilms talks about how to integrate SteadyBit with k6 for both resilience and chaos, and why he prefers "chaos testing" to "chaos engineering".

Optimize Your API Gateway with Chaos Engineering

As engineers and architects, we automatically build resilience into platforms as far as possible. But what about the unknown failures? What about the unknown behavior of your platform? The philosopher, Socrates, once said “You don’t know what you don’t know”. What if I could tell you there is a way to turn these unknowns into knowns – a way to understand how your platform will behave to specific failure events…

Why is everyone talking about chaos engineering? with Vince Huang (k6 Office Hours #56)

Why is everyone talking about chaos engineering anyway? How different is it from testing? What does it have to do with performance? In this k6 Office Hours, k6 Technical Program Manager Vince Huang joins Developer Advocates Nicole van der Hoeven and Paul Balogh to talk about these topics and more.

There's more than Performance Testing - Chaos Engineering with k6 and Steadybit

Software development is entirely different today than it was a few years ago. Back then, we usually had a big monolith running on our own hardware. We mainly did performance tests to see if the hardware resources were sufficient to handle the load. Today, we develop software in a distributed environment with multiple services which may even run on different cloud platforms. With performance testing, we try to identify performance and resilience issues in these kinds of environments.

A Practical Guide to Chaos Engineering

Modern systems built on cloud technologies and microservices architecture have a lot of dependencies on the internet, infrastructure, and services that you do not have control over. We cannot control or avoid failures in distributed systems, but we can control the impact radius of the failure and optimize the time to recover and restore the systems. This can be achieved only by exercising as many failures as we can in the test lab, thus achieving confidence in the system’s resilience., says Jitendra Nath Lella, Senior Architect, Delivery, Cigniti Technologies.
