About the talk

AWS Fault Injection Simulator is a fully managed chaos engineering service that helps you improve application resiliency by making it easy and safe to perform controlled chaos experiments. In this session, see how to use AWS Fault Injection Simulator to make applications more resilient to failure.

With the wide adoption of microservices and large-scale distributed systems, architectures have grown increasingly complex and can be hard to understand and difficult to debug and test. These systems sometimes have unpredictable behaviors caused by unforeseen turbulent events that can cause cascading and catastrophic failures. Since failures have become more and more chaotic in nature, we must turn to chaos engineering in order to reveal weaknesses before they become outages, and to gain confidence in the system's resilience to failures.

AWS Fault Injection Simulator is a fully managed chaos engineering service that helps you improve application resiliency by making it easy and safe to perform controlled chaos engineering experiments on AWS. In this session, see an overview of chaos engineering and AWS Fault Injection Simulator, and then see a demo of how to use AWS Fault Injection Simulator to make applications more resilient to failure.

Session talks about the complexity of modern distributed systems, how chaos engineering can help, and gives an overview of AWS Fault Injection Simulator.
