How do you engineer a large scale distributed system that maintains 99.99999% uptime when natural disasters such as hurricanes, earthquakes, flooding, tornadoes, or otherwise can easily knock out power, cut off internet, or even destroy the very computers a system operate on? To engineer such a system, one must deliberately introduce chaos into a system mimicking that of natural environments to then observe and address the weak points of the system. Chaos engineering is an empirical systems-wide approach to address the uncertainty of distributed systems as scale – and this talk will introduce the concepts and walk you through a real-world example of engineering such a system.
