+ - Chaos Monkey Released Into the Wild->

Submitted by Quince alPillan
Quince alPillan (677281) writes "The Netflix Tech Blog revealed today that they've released Chaos Monkey, an open source Amazon Web Service testing tool that will randomly turn off instances in Auto Scaling Groups.

We have found that the best defense against major unexpected failures is to fail often. By frequently causing failures, we force our services to be built in a way that is more resilient. We are excited to make a long-awaited announcement today that will help others who embrace this approach.

We have written about our Simian Army in the past and we are now proud to announce that the source code for the founding member of the Simian Army, Chaos Monkey, is available to the community.

Do you think your applications can handle a troop of mischievous monkeys loose in your infrastructure? Now you can find out.
