Engineering for Chaos: Preparing for Disaster

Society is becoming increasingly dependent on technology. What happens when those systems fail? Chaos Engineering is a new software discipline dedicated to answering this question and preventing that failure from occurring. Chaos engineering is how some of the leading companies in the world build resilient systems and reliable software. In today’s world, where nearly every business is an online business; where more and more critical services are coming online each day, we need a way to better understand how these systems behave under stress.
