Abstract

Chaos Engineering is the practice of running thoughtful planned experiments to reveal weakness in our systems. In this session, Ana discusses the benefits of using Chaos Engineering to inject failures in order to make your container infrastructure more reliable. She will also share how to improve your container monitoring and observability.  Lessons learned from running Chaos Engineering GameDays with Gremlin customers will also be shared as case studies.
