Title:Chaos engineering: Break it to make it


Chaos engineering started at Netflix when they publicly said that bringing down production systems helped them to be more resilient.

Some people might be thinking that chaos engineering is simply another way of testing how resilient systems are. And, to a certain extent, that’s true.

Chaos engineering is an emerging discipline of running experiments to get new knowledge from a complex system.

You might think that these experiments sound much like a test case and wonder why you would bother using a different name to test resiliency. Well, test cases make assertions based on existing knowledge from the system. If all tests pass, it means that the system behaves as expected.
