Session Name: Transforming Cloud-Native Resiliency: Chaos Engineering with LitmusChaos
How can Cloud-Native environments continue to run smoothly as they grow and include more services? The only constant is change. We live in a world where technology is progressing at a rapid speed in every direction. With technologies like Kubernetes, apps perform considerably better in terms of performance. We don't have outages as regularly as we did five years ago. But everything comes at a cost, greater innovation brings more complexity, making it a never-ending game to stay on top of application dependability concerns.
There are business-critical services and apps operating on Cloud-Native infrastructures today, and Chaos Engineering has emerged as a compelling technique for improving the millions of applications in production. Chaos Engineering has evolved in the past few years with the development of the Cloud-Native paradigm. Chaos testing is seen as a must for all Cloud-Native practitioners emphasizing reliability as a container challenge.
In this talk, we’ll take a look at how automated Chaos Engineering can be achieved with LitmusChaos and also observe how LitmusChaos combines adjustable contexts to automatically initiate chaos experiments as application states change. You’ll get a clear idea of how chaos engineering affects the larger community and also how LitmusChaos can be a solution the masses should adopt.
Prithvi Raj is currently the community lead for the LitmusChaos CNCF incubating project based on Cloud-Native Chaos Engineering and is also contributing to the growth of the Chaos Engineering community.
He has worked as a co-organizer on global events, conferences, and meetups such as Chaos Carnival, Kubernetes Community Days Bengaluru & Chennai, CNCF Kubernetes Chaos Engineering Meetups, and more to help grow various communities in the DevOps ecosystem.
He started his journey in 2020 at MayaData and has been passionately helping build the Chaos Engineering community since, being part of ChaosNative. He is now a Technical Community Manager at Harness.
