Chaos Engineering with SQL Server

Andrew Pruski is excited about Chaos Engineering:

Chaos Engineering is a practice in which we run experiments against a system to see if it reacts the way we expect it to when it encounters a failure.

We’re not trying to break things here…Chaos Engineering is not breaking things in production.

If I said to my boss that we’re now going to be experiencing an increased amount of outages because, “I AM AN ENGINEER OF CHAOS”, I’d be marched out the front door pretty quickly.

On the plus side, we will know Andrew’s supervillain origin story.

    Isnt this the NetFlix Chaos Monkey Test Set repackaged?

      It’s the same concept, yeah. Andrew’s applying it to SQL Server as opposed to classic AWS services like EC2, S3, and networking, which were the original Chaos Monkey scope.
