With the right architectural and operational patterns, failures are mitigated, contained and managed, rather than escalating and getting out of control. This talk will explore how to apply some industry standard techniques — including Failure Modes and Effects Analysis, and Systems Theoretic Process Analysis — to cloud native microservices architectures. Mitigation methods depend upon multiple layers of defense, but these defenses need to be tested to show that they work, and we will also look at how chaos engineering techniques are driving the industry from annual datacenter disaster recovery testing of monolithic applications to continuous resilience assurance for cloud native microservices.
