Enterprises such as Amazon, Facebook and Google now use chaos to understand their architectures and distributed systems. While chaos engineering is usually performed on cloud-native software, it can also be used to strengthen the dependability of traditional data center applications that may never move to the cloud. What kind of tests might you run on these applications? ...
