Resilience Testing! Why Should You? - Geoffrey van der Tas

Resilience Testing! Why Should You? - Geoffrey van der Tas

Description:

Nowadays we build applications via the microservice principles to make our applications easier to maintain, deploy, test and change. These microservices can easily be deployed on cloud platforms. Within the cloud we select the best architecture components and all our problems disappear. We automate every step and are able to recover and re-deploy within minutes. Sounds good! Never have performance, resilience or any infrastructure issues ever again. 

 

However, in the cloud more responsibilities end up with the DevOps teams. They become responsible for the infrastructure, have more settings to tune and variables you can control. This also impacts testing.  

 

During this talk, we will explore this new world, the impact on testing and how resilience testing fits in. Based on the experience and failures I had with teams moving to the cloud, I will tell you about the pitfalls and how to avoid them. I will also show you how to start with resilience testing your own microservice/cloud infrastructure.
