About the talk

What happens when Gremlins play with resilient cockroaches? Using Chaos Engineering to improve system resilience, Gremlin’s “Failure as a Service” makes it easy to find weaknesses in a system while CockroachDB is the SQL database for building global, scalable cloud services that survive disasters. While chaos engineering is about collecting, designing, implementing, orchestrating and scaling the faults in systems, CockroachDB is famously known to “survive anywhere”. This talk explores a series of Gremlin experiments to help CockroachDB evolve.
